JANUARY 2010 ATC CHALLENGE and BLOG CANDY.

H A P P Y N E W Y E A R

A huge welcome to our very talented ATC designer for Jan 2010, hey where did last year go?

Some of you may already know Hermine, I found her on my first day of setting my blog up and have admired her work ever since, she is a great inspiration to so many and a wonderful blogging friend too.


Our 1st challenge of 2010 is... Z E T T I O L O G Y .....AND I AM SHAKING IN MY BOOTS...LOL.. AS LIKE MANY OF US IT TAKES ME WAY OUTSIDE OF MY COMFORT ZONE.
But we all love a challenge ....don't you agree.... I hear you groaning and calling me names, haha... just don't call me too early in the morning...lol.

Below is a small Bio from Hemine....


Hi,
I am from The Netherlands.

I love doing arts and crafts as long as I can remember and I love to do many different things, like mixed media, rubber stamping and my latest addiction is felting.

I have been published many times in the Art Specially Magazines, Art Specially books and was featured artist in Craft Stamper.

I am designing rubber stamps for Joan Gevaert Rubber Stamps and Scrapbooking under the name STUDIO Art Stamps and last year my dream came through, I made a book called Hermine's Choice.

The ATC's I made for this challenge are all made with my own designs, except for the script and scratches.

After watching Teesha Moore's You Tube film I simply had to try this technique with stamps only.

Me again,

See Hermines Zettiology ATC's for this challenge she has used all of her own stamps and I think you will agree they are fabulous.... the stamps and the ATC's.









If you would like to watch Teesha Moores video then YOU CAN FIND IT ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE BLOG.

Thank you so much to Hermine for being our Guest ATC Designer for Jan 2010 xxx

Why not pop over HERE to see her amazing blog BE WARNED THOUGH YOU MAY NEED A CUP OF TEA AND CHOCOLATE BISCUITS...LOL... AS YOU WILL BE THERE SOME TIME.
UPDATE
