Some ATCs

This ATC was done as a challenge ... a week later....! Loved the serenity of this old lady couldn't let go of such a beautiful picture! I used StazOn inks, patterned paper and coordinated working, added a silk flower... Et voilà!... My Granny


I love this city... this week's challenge image was the one I used as a background... and vintage New York city map. I added a vintage image of New York city and a few word. Again I used StazOn to color and smudge a bit the edges...!

Now I'm back to playing, exploring new techniques....!

Have a creative day.

Sunday's additions

Happy Sunday...

My last ATCs . The first one " Life is a stage" is a collage done with a image provided by the group for the Monday Challenge on Altered Design .

"Will I ever see spring again" is the question lots of people are asking so it inspired me to do my March Lottery ATC the theme is sping, I couldn't find a better Lady to represent this questioning !

My Sunday afternoon was nice just played with my new Moon Glow embossing powders and finally I came up with my participation to another Lottery the theme is " All stamped up" which I did on a Alcohol ink polish stone background, and added gold cord and a few beads... here is " Goddess" .
Have a nice and creative week my friends...!
