I am so sorry Preeti and Sri Swathi, that it took me so long to post pics of the pretty ATC’s that you sent me. It’s almost time for next months ATC’s to be posted, so I figured I’d better hurry up and upload the Oct ATC’s.
If its any consolation I did not take any pics of the four ATC’s that I made too. Completely forgot about it.
This first one is by Sri Swathi. She has carefully and painstakingly glued the swastika design on the front of the ATC. Thanks so much Swathi.
Preeti sent me the ones in the picture below. Not just one, she sent me three, with a personalised name tag to boot.
The intricate punch craft on the ATC’s had my jaw dropping to the floor. Here is a close up of all the details in the flower bouquets. Bet it took a lot of patience to put it together. Hats off to you Preeti.
Lucy Colaco sent me this beautiful Diwali card (I know, I know…..its almost time for Christmas and too late to be talking about Diwali, but I wanted to thank her for her beautiful card).
Now…this card is actually purple, not blue. I tried really hard to capture the real colour, even tried photoshopping, but dang it! the cloudy skies in Chennai (for the past five days, I might add) didnt help one bit. So instead of waiting for Mr.Sun to show up I decided to upload it as is. The diya is made of shimmer paper and that doesnt show up either. Beautiful card with a personalised message inside. Thank you Lucy.
These are the ATC’s I received this month. Pics are form Crazy about ATC blog
This one is made by Ashalatha. I really liked the vellum overlay idea and the sentiment.
The second atc’s been made by Rachana. Beautiful bright colours in a pint sized package.
Thank you Ashalatha and Rachana for your creations.
I havent found the time to participate in the april challenge at Crazy About ATC………just unable to find the time to sit at the craft desk what with classes for the kids going on in full swing and one very sick little girl. Its been four days now and she’s been a trooper. None of us likes being sick but more importantly nobody likes being sick during holidays. What’s the fun when you cant cut school. Hopefully she will be back to her ususal bubbly self by the weekend.
March ATC had us all thinking about ‘Girl Power’. I decided to make three this month too. What can I say……..I was inspired.
The first two are inspired by Christine Middlecamp’s layering. I love the way she layers on all her projects. This is my feeble attempt. I was very happy with the results.
The purse is a die cut by Quickutz. Havent used that in a while. In fact I havent used many of my Quickutz dies in a while. Time to get them out of the box. And that dead bug you see on the bottom left purse was duly removed after the editing of this picture. What I didnt see, the camera did.
I havent recd my ATC’s yet. I will post pics of those once I do. Meanwhile enjoy these……………………..
My Feb ATC’s were ready and in my hurry to mail them out I forgot to take pics of them. Thankfully they reached the host Rachana without getting lost (sorry about yours, Mansi). I’ve copied these pics from the Crazy About ATC blog. I had made three of them. So here they are….
The middle one is my favourite, especially because it uses the stamp that I designed. If you look closely at the white square with the torn edge, you will see the words LOVE repeated inside a box. That is the stamp I’m talking about. I inked it with Archival Brilliance perlescent orhid and it shimmers when the light catches it. The medallion stamp is by SU.
After such a loooooong wait I received my two ATC’s in the mail today. And here they are……………..Rachana made the first one and Shubhra made the second …………………Thanks ladies!
The theme for Feb, if you havent guessed already, was ‘Love is in the Air’.
These were the two ATC that I made for the month of June. The topic was Ethnic Indian and this was my interpretation.
ATC on the left: Base is stamped with flower stamps from Autumn Leaves, the yellow flower is also from the same set of stamps. Peacock and elephant are stamps – Zooper Fun set by Kim Hughes for Cornish Heritage Farms. Lots of stamping and cutting in this ATC. The circle with the lines inside is also a stamp – ‘Journaling Stamps’ by Rusty Pickle. All the colouring has been done by chalks. This one was quite labor intensive.
ATC on the right: took about two minutes to make. After the first one I wanted an easy second. Textured CS for the base, dp for the next level, two stickers and one flower (stuck with glue dots). Bus khatam! Plopped everything on the dp and called it done.
I received Spardha’s and Deepti’s June ATC’s – both of their’s are absolutely stunning. I am now waiting eagerly for the July ATC to be posted.
