It's another orange day



Today I made two more atcs for the swap. They have a long way to go to get to Calgary, Alberta so I need to get them in the mail. Must arrive by the 30th to swap in this month's trade. I can't think of orange with out thinking of the beautiful color of copper, my favorite metal. Twinkling H2O background swash on cardstock with either ginger peach or a brown. I covered with a tranparency, from I don't remember where. Attached with copper brads. Staz-on black to rubber stamp the Poste Italiane onto copper mesh. Cut with stamp-edged scissors and mounted with sticky dots. I tried a clear laminate, but didn't work. The Tea atc is a napkin applied to watercolor paper with Mod Podge. I used a happiness punch, had to stomp on it to get it to go through the watercolor paper! Backed it with another piece of the babywipe/acrylic paint "fabric" to show through the punch. Stamped "tea" with paprika Versacolor and embossed with Pirate Gold. I hope to do one more......
