Black & White...Short & Sweet....

...Just a quickie today...three ATC's I made for the UK Stampers swap this month...the theme is Black & White...

ATC 1




I cut some mountboard to ATC size and used a Tim Holtz dandelion stamp using Black Soot, which I spritzed with water before stamping a couple of times...adding in some little dotty's as a fill in and a CAtslife Press sentiment and three black pearls to finish

ATC 2




Another mountboard base, stamped with a Stampers Anon stamp, which was chopped into and some of the squares layered on two different heights for definition and then a wordy stamp, source unknown...and edged with black embossing powder.

ATC 3




More mountboard, this time again with the TH dandelion...which was embossed with black powder and then ISC sentiment and butterflies added ... with a bit of Black Diamond Stickles around the edge

Thanks for looking...sorry it is a quicky tonight...there is a new Gingersnap challenge tomorrow and I promise to be more talkative *is that a good thing or a bad thing though???*LOL

Hi Hel's, these are really beautiful..would you believe I have never ever made an ATC...shock, horror, gasp...
Really...never...like I was telling you earlier, I never felt arty enough...
I think that should be put right, so tommorrow I am going to give it a go...
I love all the stamp's you used, especially the dandelion one...
