Alphabet ATC swap..A and B

I am at the beginning of what seems like one of the maddest swaps ever for me. I have agreed to an Alphaswap with Is Norris. (For those that are going 'a what??'..it's working your way through the alphabet depicting each letter of the alphabet with a chosen word on an ATC.)

The reason its quite a daunting task is I've only recently got the hang of ATC's having pushed the whole concept way way to one side as the designs I initially set off with were flat as a pancake.

The heaviest influence, and when my entire out look changed on ATC, was just before Christmas when my forum took part in a forum to forum swap with a group of stampers from Holland run by Nellie van Leeuwen. I took great inspiration from Nellie and fellow artists.

Here are the first two of the alphaswap.

'A for ARCH' and 'B for BUTTERFLY'( it had to be really as I live in a house called Papillon :0) )

Jo....these are fabulous. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the alphabet. The top one with the arch is my favorite. I think i am going to have to get that stamp after seeing you use it.
