Well the rain managed to stay away for my two Jubilee garden parties on Bank Holiday Monday & Tuesday. Day one was a family get together, but the second one was a much more rowdy affair with people from work. I forgot to take any pictures of the second one.
Here are the ATC's I made for the WOYWW 156 ATC swaps, hopefully they should be with their swapee's by now. I still have two to make however. I've just been mega busy over the weekend.
The stamps are from Papermania's Portobello Road urban stamps, as well as the Portobello Road airmail paper. The crowns are stamped with silver embossing powders, then I added gems and painted them with Ranger's Rock Candy. I also used real 1st and 2nd class stamps on the ATCs and a Crafty Individuals London postmark stamp. I melted some wax and painted it on the corner of each ATC and stamped a flourish stamp into it before it cooled. Then I rubbed mica powders into the wax.
I am making the other two ATC's this afternoon, as well as another small canvas. I'm making the most of my week off work now by getting inky and messy. I will be back to the old grindstone on Monday, boo hiss.
