Here's my ATC for The Craft Barn's Alpha/Dictionary Challenge week 6 where the letter is P.
Another quick read of the dictionary and I came up with Paddle and Parasol so immediately thought of my Bathing Beauty stamp. However she's slightly too big for an ATC - I decided she'd look better with a whole parasol, so with the ankles cut off, she's now wading rather than paddling!! So I've gone for PARASOL and a purple one too!
The Bathing Beauty (from Crafty Individuals CI-278) is stamped on gloss card with Jet Black Archival and coloured with Tombow markers. The background is Powder Blue Pigment Ink spritzed with water and mopped up and I've stamped the waves round her shins in Forest Green Pigment Ink - both by Oak House Studio. I've just finished my ATC with some beach hut ribbon, the Parasol dictionary definition and the alcohol inked vinyl Thicker.
As we are nearly a quarter of the way through I thought I'd add a photo of my ATCs so far - love how bright and colourful they are.....but maybe I need to use yellow or orange next time!! Hope you like. Thanks for looking and for your lovely comments!!
