These are not for the faint hearted they truly are a fabulously huge stamp with so many projects and mediums they can lend themselves to, so without further ado I will share my canvas ….

A Thing of Beauty


I am sharing another ATC I have created for a swap in Craftily Crazy Facebook group.
Hope you like it, see you soon
Aly xxx



How its Made ~

Cut some card to 4inch x 6 inch this is your base for a large ATC.
Create a background, I have used paints and stencils, cut out roses, I’ve used a bottle top to create the circles using Distress Ink and the edge of an old store card to make the lines.
I’ve cut out a little girl from Mixed Up Pintable’s, Little People #1 and created some wings and a hat
I have added a sentiment, then I have outlined that and the little girl using a watercolour pencil to give some depth and shade
Finally I have edged the whole ATC with Black Soot Distress Ink
