Lianne's Contribution

Hi everyone,

As promised, here is Lianne's contribution to the Favourite Quotes Dare!

Lianne has been very creative and etched her quote into a layer of Gesso then rubbed paint over in layers. This is very effective and something completely different.

Thanks for a great inspiring card Lianne!

ATC Dare #9 - Favourite Quotes!

Hello again, yes I am late once again but finally got my example ATC finished last night.

Thanks to all those that have joined in to ATC dares in the past few months! This time we decided to make it easy for you. You basically can do anything you want this month, the only catch is you have to have at least 'one' favourite quote on your ATC somewhere.

You have one month to complete this dare so you have plenty of time. Please remember to upload your finished ATC to the ATC Dare #9-Favourite Quotes Folder in the ART ROOM by Tuesday 21st July 2009.

You will also find a thread in the forum if you want to show anyone your ATC or talk about it.

Lianne is still working on her contribution but in the meantime hopefully Nickie and I can inspire you with ours!!

Here is Nickies......she has a gorgeous image in the background with a fabulous 2Crafty chipboard window embossed and popped up over her image. She has also added a Collections butterfly, sprayed roses and quote, isn't is just adorable?

Here is my example, I decided to add an additional piece to my ATC to fit in the quote. The main body of the ATC is the required measurement. I have double stamped the background with music and tape measure stamps, stamped the background for the corset with an dictionary print and stamped the corset. I have also added some german scrap coloured with alcohol inks along the top edge. I couldn't quite fit the quote in how I hoped, trust me to pick a long one!!

Thanks for looking, good luck with your ATC's and I'll be back to add Lianne's ATC very soon.

Feel free to leave a comment!

thanks, Lisa :)

Hi Girls,

Sorry better late than ever. Wow what a full on week with phone calls coming through with weekend pass holders for Senz ringing to book their classes, the phone in the shop has been a hotline!

We have some really cool new products that can be used on your ATC's instore now. A fabulous range from Collections Elements, not just the new products but still some older goodies too. Some awesome coloured metal sheets from 10 Seconds Studio, fabulous for ATC's, can be embossed, coloured with alcohol inks etc. I'll have to make up a sample to show you, you will love it! Don't know anyone else in NZ that stocks this either. They also have some stunning embossing moulds which I'm going to bring in also.

Nickie our contributor has made up a stunning project that she is displaying as a sample in the shop, will have to photograph it tomorrow to show, its absolutely gorgeous!
