My first ATC trade

I recently started this blog thing about a month ago after finishing one of Andy Skinners on line work shops, Time worn techniques, there is a link in my sidebar. One of the friends that has been made on this course and has been very encouraging is Elly her blog is With the up and coming atc swap on woyww Elly asked if I fancied a bit of practice and wanted to do a trade, I jumped at the chance. She set the challenge of 3 atc's, one shabby/vintage, one steam punk and one free choice.
Here are the three that I made, I really love playing with the atc, they are such a good way to try things out with out to much waste.

 Here are the 3 Elly made, they total blow me away, 
I love them, and they have taught me a lot as well. As well as these 3 amazing cards was a little stash of booty, some nice laser cut pieces, some little bingo papers in a pad, a little envelope for the hand stitched card, all presented in a nicely stamped little bag, The funny thing is Elly used the same da vinci image I have used on one of my atc's with out either of us knowing. for some reason this pic would not face the right way :-(


  1. Fab ATC's - yours and Ellys! I love the colour of your da vinci card.
