I was on a green kick today. I should have been on a laundry kick! Posting this and then off to do some necessary chores. Sorry my scans are terrible! My scanner is misbehaving badly.
The theme for the atc swap this month on the byhandartists yahoogroup is green and sealife. Yogi is our organizer and swapper.
The five bird atcs are done on cardstock. Applied Dark Moss chalk ink DTP. Stamped the nautilus stamp with Yellow Ochre chalk ink. I'm on a magpie kick since I did my research for the Chinese Valentine's Day 4x4. The birds are a copyright free image I printed on tranparancy. Some have a background word stamp also stamped in Dark Moss. Some have ribbon- I really like the clean look of this black and white ribbon, some have decorative corners that I cut out with my cuttlebug.
The man and little girl and dog with a quote are on scrapbook patterned paper. The man is from an old photo I had in my stash. The stamp was in my postage stash and the "how much farther?" is a cardstock sticker. The girl and quote are from a free image sheet I got from www.Pennywisearts.com. Don't recall how I came across it, but there are several people/animal pics and some quotes. The corner is cut from scrapbook paper, too.
The little girl and dog (also Pennywisearts)with the black and white ribbon are on a background of twinkling H2O. The flower stamp and number are stamped in black dye ink. The asian woman is on the same background with an asian background stamped with black dye ink and a pink petal.
