Something Red

Over at Fun with Atc's they have a theme of something red.  Only something has to be red or it can all be red.

I coloured 2 chipboard sized atc's, one with fired brick distress paint and the other with barn door.  I was pleasantly surprised at how well they covered and only needed one coat.

I stamped the PaperArtsy mini script #44 directly onto the background with red stazon.  I stamped the mini images on the top in black stazon and again onto white card.  I cut them out and coloured them with pan pastels and 3d'd them over the original image.  Stamped the Stampotique splatter in black stazon, used a T!m chit chat sticker and outlined it with a Posca pen.

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
