Extraordinary Atc


I have no idea why, but this has come out orange even though I used a blend of permanent red, shade and dark pan pastels. Stamped the PA image in black archival over the top and framed it with a barbed wire stamp from GreenPepperPress, The WayWard Collection, Hot Topic plate.

I specifically made this atc for the PanPastelUk challenge as although it is an anything goes week you get more brownie points if you follow the theme with the DT, which is frosty finish, hence the reason I ran a piece of acetate through a creative expressions folder to create a frosted finish which you can just about see. Then I went back and read some more and what it really meant is snow or frost - duh!!!

I love the colour, even if it's not how you planned it to come out - and the stamped image is just great.

Fab ATC Sam and the acetate is a great effect. Pity it's not the one you needed though, lol! That is a trick I'm brilliant at ........ skip reading and missing out the important bit ........ used to do it all the time with the kids letters from school, ooops!

Well, I like it even if it was frost or snow that was required! I should think after Christmas they might be a little frosted and snowed out, but there we are! I really like that barbed wire stamp around the edge. I haven't seen one of those before. Julie Ann xx

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 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 6 years and 7 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.
