Our Contributions!

Hi everyone, sorry its taken so long but finally here are our contributions (I held things up a bit with finishing mine off!)

First of all I'll start of with Nickie's as she finished her's first. I love this, she has used these adorable new little rose buds we just got instore, take a look:


and here is Lianne's. She has used loads of techniques on this one including stitching and glazing over map for her background, then cracked it, what an awesome effect!


and finally here is mine. A bit of a weird one I must say. I like to make ATC's outside the square so to speak but a real pain when it can't fit into a folder! My background measurement is measured around the perimeter if the chipboard background. Images sourced off the internet and resized etc. Originally I had a plan to use my new Hero Arts Russian Doll stamps but couldn't find where I put them! Typical

I used German Scrap strips for the background and had to resort to Peelcraft for the to tie it together.

I did not know Russia was such a beautiful place until I started looking up images of the cities etc, I really enjoyed the exercise.


Thanks for looking, hope you are all busy working on your take on this dare! :)

ATC Dare #8 - Places & Their Icons

Hello everybody, I'm back again to post your new dare!

This month we decided on Places & their Icons! Now its up to you to choose how you do this and whether you want to just focus on the place or use one or some of their icons to give the clue on what place you are trying to convey.

For example: You might want to focus on a place with pictures or words about France, Egypt, England etc etc, or you might want to create a card with some icons that can represent a place, for example: Holland - Clogs, Paris - Eiffel Tower, Paeroa - L & P, Auckland - Sky Tower, New Zealand - Kiwi, England - Queen etc etc

The only rule is you have to have the name of the place somewhere on the card plus it has to be a place that everybody knows of ie. Town, City, Country, Famous Icon etc, cannot be your local coffee shop or beach

Here is an ATC I found online to give you an idea: Here is the link to where I found this, she has some other great ATCs to check out, look HERE

I should be able to get my ATC example done tomorrow night, I have an idea in mind. I know has an idea up her sleeve and I pretty sure Nickie and Kryshina will do one too so keep watch. I'll post in the forum when we have posted our examples also.

Ok, so remember to post your ATC in the ART ROOM under ATC Dares, I have set up a folder in there. You have until Sunday 7th June to complete your ATC and post in the gallery.

Good Luck everyone, talk soon :)
