I am so glad you like it Elayne. I searched and searched through my stamps for feathers and could not find one. I think I have more stamps than anything else. I really can't believe I don't have a feather. I guess this gives me a reason to go shopping. :)

CritterPortraits, The pleasure is mine. I looked at that ATC and I really liked what I saw. I was hoping you would like it as well. I try so hard not to send out what I would not want to receive. And the truth is that I don't mind replacing an ATC that the recipient does not care for. I think that is why I like to send them out so early, in case one is lost in the mail or someone does not care for what I have sent. Since I am not an artist, I just work on my projects until they look okay to me. Then I just hope. :)


Yankee, yours is completed. It will be mailed tomorrow. I hope you have it by Thursday.

02-18-2017, 03:09 PM
GameGirl,
I'm confused about your choice of 6 inches for March. Do you mean the measurement 6" or 6 inchies? I can do either but want to make sure you get what you want. :)

GameGirlAZ D
02-19-2017, 07:54 AM
If I would just slow down and take my time doing things,
I would not sound like such a crazy old lady. :)) I sincerely
apologize for the confusion. I would like 6 inchies or the
look of 6 inchies on an ATC. What you put on the inchies
is your choice. Again, I am so sorry for the mix up.
Everyone, have a wonderful Sunday and week!!! :)

02-19-2017, 06:55 PM
Hi Fellow Crafters!
I might be the oldest member of this group but I so enjoy this group. I apologize for the confusion I caused. I actually sat and thought about how many INCHIES would fit on an ATC and came up with 6. If you already sent 6 inches, that is fine. I am sure it is amazing, just like all of your other ATCs. I appreciate whatever you send to me. I really do. Have a great week.

You are not confused Creative_Cutie. I met all of you
amazing artist and crafters on this site and many of
the ATCs and cards I have received were based on
the artists' interpretation of broad themes. I don't want
to suggest what to do with a crayon, nor any particular
color. Any way you see "a crayon", the ATC will show
me. :) Thank you so much!
Enjoy the weekend everyone!!!

Thank you Creative_Cutie!!!!!!!! I am so glad you got it. It should have reached you weeks ago. I wait and mail all of mine at the same time so they can reach all my crafty friends within a day or two of each other. I don't always know that they reach people because we get busy and don't always remember to mention they arrive. That is perfectly fine because LIFE HAPPENS but it is sad to me to think that they never get to their destination after being mailed in good faith. Oh well. you got it and I am very happy.

06-25-2017, 06:45 AM
Mixed media is nothing new, you have already been doing it here. When you put a brad on an ATC is mixing your medias. In fact in grade school when you put paint and crayon on your picture to give to mom, you were doing mixed media. We just didn't call it that. It is nothing new except the name!

I am watching some birds having so much fun. I put some shells around the base of a pole in the back yard. The birds think it is a treasure hunt, they are throwing them around and fighting over it, you can hear the shells clunking. So funny!
I did wonder how the shells kept getting everywhere, I blamed the grandkids.

Yankee
07-09-2017, 07:55 AM
A friend gave me these puzzle pictures where you put in these sticker pieces to make the picture. So when I finished them I framed two and stenciled pasted over the rest. Then I added different products over the paste. Your ATC was glittered over, but it didn't stick to well to the paste, but stuck to the background. Wasn't what I thought would happen but was good. But any brightly colored background you can stencil paste over top for an interesting look. I have done it on many backgrounds. Of course I wanted to use those puzzle pictures up, instead of pitching them. And I love to put stencil paste on. I forget you can use stencils for ink, till someone reminds me.

Critter, I was sure I thanked you for my card and Halloween ATC, but I don't see the post.
Anyway thank you very much, love the scary cat card.
