Even Silence Speaks

It's been a long time since I made an ATC. I should make more. Maybe I should keep a few ready cut cards to hand when I'm making other things to encourage me to do so.

 I enjoyed making this one using my Small Butterfly, Grass and Silence Speaks stamps from Stampotique. The background was made using bleach and over stamping. The main butterfly image was stamped on to tissue paper and glued in place.

 The challenge at Stampotique Designers Challenge this week is to make an ATC using Stampotique stamps. As always there is an opportunity if you do take part to win yourself a $30 gift certificate in the lucky draw announced in a couple of weeks time. Its a lucky dip, all are in with a chance so what's to lose?


As it happens. the ATC theme this week on Think Monday, Think ATC is Butterfly but unfortunately I have been unable to post onto Wordpress over recent weeks, but I would have entered if I could have got around the glitch I've been experiencing. If you are also on wordpress and usually receive a comment now and again from me thats why...sorry.

It's just fabulous and I have all of those stamps. I stopped making ATCs years ago too - I just had so many and although kept in folders they were just not seeing daylight - which I thought was a shame. They do make lovely little works of art though and a great idea to try out a new techinque like your bleached background - think I out to have a go myself as soon as I can.

Just beautiful! Love the background. Might be tempted to play along myself this week.

Try using a different browser to leave comments on wordpress. I've found that I can't do it with chrome, but can with firefox!

Catch you later.
