The Stamp Man ATC Swap

As part of the DT team at The Stamp Man I make an ATC every month to fit the theme chosen for the Stamp Man ATC Swap. I have never ever entered a swap for anything, so I thought I would take the plunge and make 2 more Wise Words ATCs and I am going to send them in to take part.

For the photography one, in the middle, I made a special backing paper using old camera adverts and steampunk images. I stamped a camera and saying using Creative Expressions Vintage Photo set straight onto the paper and also used the same set to stamp a mini negative onto acetate and cut out.

The creating yourself one uses the TH mini classic set of stamps and a Crafty Individuals image and butterfly wings which were cut out and added to it. DIs used were worn lipstick, frayed burlap and walnut stain.

I really enjoyed making some smaller pieces of art and hope that Janet will be happy to accept them into the swap, and I am really looking forward to seeing what I get back. If you haven't seen the swap before or haven't entered this month, please have a go and enter some mini art of your own. The swap details for posting etc can be found  here.

Hope your week has started well.

Take care and thanks for stopping by.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
