ATC - Tim Holtz Style

A bit of a blast from the past as I haven't made an ATC for ages. That's what really started me off crafting seriously some years ago.

Over at A Vintage Journey Challenge the theme is to make an ATC with "a little touch of Tim" (Holtz)

I created the background by embossing the background with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and then embossing with gold powder. The washi tape, images and tickets are all from my "Tim Holtz stash"

Enjoy Your Crafting!

Fun at the Fair

I hope you are enjoying the bank holiday, although here in the South it has been a very wet one. The weather has been a great excuse to stay in and catch the Serif CraftArtist shows on Create and Craft. Today Michelle has been showcasing the Sahlin Studio Kits which have a distinctively vintage feel.

Vintage Carnival Kit

As a member of the Design Team I had great fun using these kits to create cards and scrapbook pages.

Grandma's Dresser Kit

Retro Mod Kit

The Retro Mod kit has the most amazing embroidered flowers, but if you look closely at my card, can you spot the real embroidery?!

Keep Crafting!!

Autumn Foliage

One of my favourite seasons is Autumn and its certainly in the air in the early morning. I was inspired to make this card for the Less Is More Challenge.

I used a fabulous set of stamps  - Woodland Walk from InkyDoodles and Promarkers to make the card.

I love to hear your comments on my work so don't be shy!

Other Challenges I am entering:

I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs - Colour Inspired
Penny Black and More -Anything Goes

Hello Sparkly Followers! I am just back from a little break in the Isle of Wight and enjoying crafting again. This week Create and Craft have had the new Roald Dahl Digikits from Serif as their Pick of the Week. As part of the CraftArtist design team I can now share my samples with you.

They were such fun to make and brought back many childhood memories!

To see more of the fabulous Design Team's work pop over to the Daisytrail Gallery.
