Hip Hop ATC Hangover

Hip Hop Hangover

Morning everyone! Before I post my stuff today, if you haven't been over to Unity, Angela's released a cute new Halloween set this week, by my friend Lisa Hetrick, called Hauntingly Sweet. It is TOO cute! This weekend, all past Kits of the Month are $35 (regularly $45 unless you are a subscriber - and what a deal that is...$24 plus shipping! For a FULL sheet of deeply etched rubber. You certainly can't beat that with a stick!) - and everything in the store is 10% off!

Okay, back to my stuff. I've been working on getting out some Swap-bot stuff and some school assignments, which are still kicking my butt. And taking up all of my good crafting time. So EtsyInspired will be later today...but this week I've been working on ATCs. Bird ATCs to be specific. You saw one last week. I liked it so much, I was going to do them all the same. What I didn't like was cutting out all those little curly-cues. Yeah...not so much fun considering I still don't have a good pair of paper snips.

The first change I made was to use the same kit, Birds of a Feather, but to emboss the bird directly onto the background. I coloured it in with Copics, then used Spica markers on the leaves and the 3 dots by the curl. The backgrounds are all the same as last week. I like the way you can see the background through the bird. Thanks to Tanis for giving me the courage to do this!

For the next one, I used the owl from June's Kit of the Month, Perfect in Every Way. For this one, I once again stamped onto regular paper, this time with Versamagic chalk ink, coloured it in with copics, cut it out and attached it to the card. I added tiny alphabet stickers from Making Memories. They're from the Chloe's Closet line.

So that's it for now. I have 2 more to make and I'm not sure if I'll duplicate any that I've done so far or if I'll try something different. Right now, it's time to be a mom, but I'll be back later with an EtsyInspired post.

Catch you on the flip side!
