That Flower... Has a Baby Brother!

...ooohalalalaaaaa and thrice indeedily! That flower, you know, that one that has become my firm favourite in the last few weeks... on the Accents for Art Studio 490 stamp set... well, it has a baby brother... and I had been really rude and ignored it because my head had been turned by the bigger one. Well, the little one is a darling indeed! It has five petals but still has the same gorgeous markings inside it.



So.. the other day when I was making my entry for the Sunday Stamper, I had some left over bits and pieces and popped together an ATC. I wanted to add a flower (yep, that one) but... it was ever so slightly too big for the ATC size. And then I spyed the other flower stamp, sitting every so patiently on the sheet, waiting to be inked... so, er, I inked it! I stamped it three times onto Grungepaper, cut out the layers and then coloured with Fired Brick DI. The middle layer has been coloured with Brushed Corduroy DI to add a bit of definition in the design. The rest of the ATC is made up of Jenni Bowlin papers, I got the sewing machine out and stitched around the edges and cut a piece using the Label Alterations die, stamped the sentiment (too cute!) and then popped that on there too.




I had forgotten how nice it is to make ATC's... you can get them made pretty quickly because they are only diddy but... you can still add some loveliness to them. Anyways... I would love to be able to sit and chatter and tell you all about what I did yesterday but... seeing as I did nothing, you would soon be bored! Actually, I did watch the Touring Cars... from a very wet Thruxton (thank goodness we decided to watch it on the tellybox instead of going there and getting drenched!) The sun is shining today, which is making a lovely change though. Right... I am offski... thanks for looking... hope you having a lovely sunny day too! TTFN

Hi Hels. Love your ATC. I must admit to never having made an ATC but as you say it can be put together reasonably quickly. That image really makes a lovely flower. Hugs Annie :)

Love it, and I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more of this little flower!! Posting my entry tonight - hurrahh!
Saw those poor people in plastic sheeting at Thruxton and thought of you... that weather wouldn't have done you much good, but JP did ok in it.
Hugs, Buttons x
