Andy Skinner ATC

Hello Everyone and thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog today.

I have been having a quiet weekend just shopping and crafting as I know work is going to be crazy for the next two weeks.........

So today I created an ATC with my new Andy Skinner stencils that arrived in the post earlier in the week:

It's a Ranger sticky back canvas ATC and I started by spritzing it with dylusions inks (lemon zest, pure sunshine and squeezed orange) and some water.  I dried it with my heat tool and then used part of the tornado stencil with picked raspberry distress ink.  I then took the children stencil and used black soot distress ink to create the silhouette of the two children.  I added a border around the edge with a black micron pen and added the words from Tim Holtz stickers.

I would like to enter my ATC into the following challenges:

  4. Claire, wow, what a beautiful ATC! You lucky gal, I've been drooling over those Andy Skinner stencils for a while now. You have certainly done them justice!
    What's neat to see how the picked raspberry looks over the Dylusions on the canvas, from the photo I wouldn't have guessed. So cool!
