New Year, New You & New Forum!

Click on image to enlarge

Now don't go getting used to two posts in one day will you? I can't promise to keep it up! lol
These ATCs are for the January swap on the brand new Creating Rainbows Forum. It's a lovely friendly little (at the moment but growing all the time) forum for crafty people like us. The theme for January's swap is New Year, New You and I think you can probably guess from the image where my hopes are going for 2009! The image is from Joanna Sheen's Dancing with Shadows CD and this has been layered onto a piece of black cuttlebugged card which in turn has been layered onto silver foild card. The ATC background was created using cranberry alcohol ink and then stamped with one of the smaller stamps from the Elusive images filigree fusion themeplate with brilliance pearlescent crimson then overstamped again on one with brilliance moonlight white and on the other with sakura silver stardust pen. The sakura one doesn't show the stamp design clearly but places the glitter that's in the pen beautifully - unfortunately, it doesn't show up too well in the photo. Both have been embellished with pearls and clear crystals. I'm also entering these for this week's Ooh-la-la Creations Challenge which is 'Small is beautiful'.
Thank you for your visit today.

  4. Ann, once again fantastic ATC's, I love they way you do your backgrounds.


  5. Ann - I'm a bit worried about the phrase 'you can probably guess from the image where my hopes are going for 2009! ' - are you going to start modelling underwear? or something even more riskee?

    LOL - no I think I know what you really meant - think I will have to head along those lines too.

    Great ATCs - love them.
