A Year of ATCs? - Day 120

This is my 120th make for my Year of ATCs?

And my ATCs still have an Easter feel...

It's my fifth make in a set using Ike's images - these were the first four:

Anyway I printed each of Ike's images directly on a digital DP using Serif Craft Artist 2 - the paper is from Dragons Lair. I then coloured them with a variety of markers and my Zig pens. I trimmed them and added them to scraps of pink paper from my stash.
Finally I added a few embellishments, this time a bunny brad, a fabric rose
 and pink raffia...

This image was a freebie on Ike's Art Fan Page on Facebook

A Year of ATCs? - Day 119

This is my 119th ATC in my Year of ATCs

This is another ATC using 'Elmo' which was from the last
  Limited Runs Progressive Challenge on Facebook.
Watch out for the current one soon...

You might remember my first three:

I started with a pink card blank.
To this I added a freebie paper from a magazine.
I coloured the image with a variety of markers, cut it out and glued it in place along with the feathers. I added my sentiment using words printed on the computer, punched with my tiny tag punch and edged with a Promarker.

Happy Crafting!

A Year of ATCs? - Day 118

This is my 118th ATC in my Year of ATCs

I have used a magazine freebie stamp - a basket - in fact I was given the challenge to 'fill the basket'.

In addition to the basket I used a Stampin Up Hand Knit Stamp Set.
I used a variety of the stamps and masked various areas to put the image together.
I then coloured it with a variety of markers.

I trimmed the image to size and matted it on a beige rectangle.
Finally I added an unravelling bow of wool.

Happy Crafting!

A Year of ATCs? - Day 117

This is my 117th ATC in my Year of ATCs

I have used a magazine freebie stamp - a line of music - embossing it several times with an opaque embossing powder. I trimmed this to a rectangle slightly smaller than 2.5 by 3.5 inches and die cut 3 shapes from it - Paisley or tear-drop shapes from Reverse Confetti.
I added Picked Raspberry distress ink to the background and Peacock Feathers to the inner shapes - leaving these in the shapes until after I added the colour. This means that they have the white rim.

My quote is from 12th Night - If Music be the food of love, play on... printed on the computer, die cut and then distressed around the edges. I added this with a heart shaped brad and then added the whole to a white rectangle.

Orsino is asking for more music because he is frustrated in his courtship of Countess Olivia. He muses that an excess of music might cure his obsession with love, in the way that eating too much removes one's appetite for food.
