My hubby cracked up at how appropriate the sentiment was on my ATC card I made today... I think I should be insulted! :D
Today I tackled my first ATC... and I loved it! It was so much fun! The broom was handmade by unwinding some SU cord, and then dipping the threads into a water and glue solution to stiffen them. I then tied them around a wheat stalk (grabbed off the side of a country road nearby!) with a bit of metal wire. The background cardstock got a solid coating of Tim Holtz distress crackle paint. Here it is!
That gorgeous girl is from Tiddly Inks, and her name is Betty Belfrey. I nabbed her at last week's sale, and I'm kicking myself for not getting tons more... I only got 8! I did trim off a bit of her dress, and the rim of her hat, just for the sake of this ATC. If I hadn't been gluing on my handmade broom in the spot where she holds her actual broom, I definitely wouldn't have cut off the brim. The background is a freebie from Tiddly Inks, printed on Kraft cardstock. Betty is coloured with Copics, with some shading done with Prismacolor pencils.
Now I want to make some more! :)
