How do I have it in my crafty inky hands already you ask...well Jean and Malcom who have Crafty Individuals live a short walk from me...and Malcom dropped my order off at lunch time today...Thanx J n M :)) Hows that for service.
I was cleaning and clearing my mess up from a week of crafting when they arrived but what do you think happened next... no prizes for guessing.
As the theme for this months ATC swap challenge is 'Fairy Tales' I just had to have a play (by the way Dottie was so wrapped up in herself painting her toe nails etc for her holidays tomorrow) I got out the bleach ..yes again Sunday is Bleach day for me it was last Sunday too.( scroll down and see another of C I stamps I used using bleach. (Bleach does not go onto the stamp it is safe I promise you)
This 1st bleach ATC was created once again using 1 stamp, one white ATC, 1 ink pad, a small amount of bleach and water and some bubble wrap.
I just LOVE it.
What happened next.. I go to my blank ATC stash and there are NO slight sheen ATC's left...I find they are better for achieving this bleach look...what am I going to do as 1 ATC is not enough for any girl when she has a new stamp ..dont you all agree... at that I remember to change the calendar as its the 1st of June and I get soo excited as the callendar is made of sheen cardstck... Big smile ...will it work... ?????? Thanx Jackie and Leigh ..they bought it for me.
So for those of you who know how I love to recycle 'stuff' on my ATC's I cut out an ATC from the front page which had some beautiful Lillies on it.. Below is an ATC I have cut out to give you an idea of what it looked like before I used the same method as above.
This is the finished ATC using part of a recycled calendar page, the same stamp, 1 ink pad, bleach 'n' water mixture and bubble wrap...I am thrilled with it and hope you like it too.
Unlike last week I just cannot part with either of them...but look out in this months ATC challenge I may well use this stamp for our monthly theme.Mind you I did purchase a few more and 1 is most deffinately suitable for the Fairy tale ATC's. The other is for a fathers day challenge over on the Fiskarettes blog.. see the link on the right. I was also delighted with some fabulous freebie stamps and papers I received from CI ...Thank you J n M :)) I will show at a later date what I make with them.
