Monday 24 April 2017


Morning and we have a new Just For Fun challenge starting today at Crafting From The Heart and I made three ATCs.The backgrounds were made with Brushos then stencilled over with distress inks,and the umbrella stamp was a craft mag freebie,on two a made a litte pocket with the offcuts and stamped with a script stamp and the third one just added two little offcut strips,then distress inked all edges.These were also used for an ATC swap on FB.
