blog's challenge. Each week a theme is posted and you make an ATC per the theme, then blog about it. So... here I am.
The image of the little girl was part of the package that some violet stamps came in at least 1-12 years ago. I love purple and orange together and she'd been sitting around waiting for a call to action - an ATC with flowers seemed perfect. The pansy at bottom left was cut from a sheet of stickers that I've had forever. It's amazing the things I keep coming across that I've had for a long time and were originally purchased for something else entirely. Collage seems to know no bounds when it comes to using stuff up. Excellent craft for a pack rat like me...
I stamped the 3 small pansies, (last one is out of line, damn it) then colored them in a bit. Wrote 'violets' when I really should have found the word in a magazine or something since my handwriting is pretty poor. But I like the overall look well enough. Really like the diagonal striped paper. I thought it might look a bit odd or make the whole thing look like it was leaning left, but I kept coming back to it and it seems to work.
I continue to love working small - an ATC is 2.5"x3.5" - and went ahead and cut up a bunch of background paper into 2.5" wide strips so that I can get going a little quicker when the ATC urge strikes me. Gotta make an ATC NOW!
