ACT Challenge

ATC stands for Artists trading card which were originally given by artists as a sample of their works. They are bits of card that measure 3.5 x 2.5 inches exactly. You decorate one side using a range of techniques and then write on the back a title for it, the date and who its made by.

9th October - 23rd October 12th Challenge Anything Girlie or Anything Goes

The team would like to thank everyone who took part in our last challenge, we all hope that you will join us again this fortnight


This is what our lovely design team have been making. The winner of challenge 11 will be announced at mid day on the 9th October.

I used a favourite Personal Impressions stamp for this wistful lady. The poppies are a Lavinia stamp, and the other flowers are Stampin' Up. I couldn't find a good spot to put the word, so I did my usual trick and stamped it onto tissue paper!

Ok here is mine .. Usual for me at the moment is stamps and distress inks .. must be my thing , Hope you like

Purples ATC

I used DCWV card stock
A didi image coloured with
Koh-i-noor pencils and promarkers (on her face)
finished with a diva brad and a gem

I decided to dig out one of my old Sweet Pea stamps - Mad Tea Party by Ching-chou Kuik for this. I watercoloured the image and added some Sakura Stardust pens for a bit of bling.


For my ATC this fortnight I have taken an image and added some color to the image with a gel Pen, I have added metal music note and some gold rhinestones, then to finish I have added two aqua feathers to the doors. xx

Caro's ATC

I don't do girlie very well, but saw an ATC similar and it gave me the idea
of a sort of scarecrow girl.

Getting ready for Halloween. I love my weird and spooky crafting, so I'm inspired at the moment! The stamps are from Stampotique, coloured with Promarkers, and the background is spray inks by Dylusions
