Good Morning Everyone & welcome to the Mid Month Inspiration that we have for you at Ellephantastic. Hazel & the DT have been working hard on a fab ATC Tutorial for you all. Don't forget there are no prizes for taking part, you get to create for fun!!
For my 1st ATC I used the lovely Barney. I was looking through some fab Tuts for colouring with Promarkers by Debbie Glennie & decided to follow her technique of colouring with your darkest shades first. I have to say I can notice a difference. You can find Debbie's TUTs here. I kept my ATCs fairly simple. I added some glitter brads, ribbon & a ribbon rose.
For my 2nd ATC I stitched around the edge of the ATC using my sewing machine. I have to say that unfortunately 3 other ATCs went in the bin trying to get the stitching right. I think next time I will probably stitch by hand & use a colour that can actually be seen :-( For this one I used the gorgeous Rosaline Bunny. I added 2 sequin flowers with gem centres. I then added a "HUGS" brad.
Don't forget our challenge that runs through to the 1st April xx Clare
