WW #151 Beautiful Blooms

Another Wednesday, another ATC...I love how they go together!

Our sponsor over at Wicked Wednesday this week is DRS Designs and the challenge is called BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS.

My inspiration for this ATC came on a day I was rifling through the abundant stock of Inchies I have when it occurred to me that this Bloomin'  Huge Flower image (from DRS Designs) would be perfect to make a few more with. After printing the image in multiple sizes, I then colored them with Copics, inked a few edges, pop-dotted a couple of the smaller images and used alpha stamps for the sentiment. Easy Peasy!

It would be great to have you join us with one of your own  BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS at Wicked Wednesday, just make sure you've uploaded your ATC by 7:00 pm EST next Tuesday evening. If you are looking for some additional inspiration, you can click HERE to see the inspiring ATC's my teamies designed.

WW #150 Back to School

This week's challenge at Wicked Wednesday is always a bit sad because it marks the end of summer, it is the BACK TO SCHOOL theme. 

Yesterday was the 1st day of school in our district and my son's 1st day of being a ninth grader and surprisingly, he was a tad bit more calmer about his first day of high school than I am. As cool and grown-up as he thinks he is....I still take a picture of him sitting on the steps next to his backpack on the 1st day, just like every other mother! #best9thgraderever!

And in just a few short weeks we take our daughter back to college, hopefully we'll be finishing up with her shopping by the end of next week. #bestdaughterever!

Our sponsor this week is Time for Tea and the image is called Apple for Teacher.

Distress inks and school related rub-ons were applied for the background. The image was fussy cut, outlined with a charcoal pencil and smudged, then it was outlined again with a white Signo pen.

You can join this fun challenge too, just make sure your ATC is uploaded over at the Wicked Wednesday challenge blog by 7:00 pm EST next Tuesday evening. My teamies have created some very inspiring ATCs which you can see HERE.

Happy Thursday, enjoy what comes your way!

WW #149 Something Sweet

The challenge this week at Wicked Wednesday is Something Sweet, with Sami Stamps being the sponsor. The image I used is called Kitty in my Lap. 

Am I the only person who logs onto FB only to be inundated with pictures of cute kitties? I have a friend who should be banned from FB with all the pictures and quotes of felines that she posts.....this ATC is in her honor. I once read that someone can't read more than 10 posts without seeing a picture of a cat...I've found that fact to be true, lol.

Such an easy challenge and always lots of fun to join....anything SWEET will do! Just make sure your ATC is uploaded by 7:00 pm EST next Tuesday evening to be qualified for the weekly sponsored prize. Feel free to upload your ATC HERE.

Happy Wednesday!

WW #148 Leo

The challenge over at Wicked Wednesday is called LEO and the image I used is also called Leo, which was provided by this week's sponsor, Delicious Doodles.

I opted to make a horoscope ATC by printing today's horoscope from onto watercolor paper. After coloring and masking the image, Distress Inks were applied to the edges and then water was splattered over the ATC.

Because today is our lovable and fierce leader's birthday at Wicked Wednesday, I made a small journal for her using the ATC with her horoscope. I hope she likes it!


As most of you know, you have until 7:00 pm EST next Tuesday to join us in this fun ATC challenge. My teamies have created some inspiring works of art with the LEO theme in mind, all of which you can see HERE. Hope you'll join us!
