Postacard/ATC/Trading Coin Swaps

Morning and would like to welcome my new follower CORRY -and I have some swaps to share they have all been made for the swaps on a FB forum-
For the postcard I stamped and embossed in white an image from Woodware,then inked over the card with a couple of oxide ink colours,splashed with water then used my fave texture stamp round the edges.
For the ATCs the backgrounds were made with the shaving foam technique then over stamped with AAll& Create stamps.
The ATC trading coins were cute from mp up paper glued onto card and cut with a Creative Die scalloped circle then used an Artistic Stamper stamp.

Would also like to share my Grandaughter Ellies(12yrs)latest drawings-Can I just say she doesn't get her drawing talent from me-can't draw for toffee-that is from her Dad who has his own tattoo studio.

Kudos first to your granddaughter! She's amazing! However, I believe you do have artistic skills which you apply in ways other than drawing. It all counts. Nice ATCs!

These are beautiful Carol, I especially love the postcard. I have never tried the shaving foam technique but recently saw it demonstrated so am determined to give it a try, these ATCs have made up my mind - I'm off to raid hubby's toiletries!
