Paper Roses... Plus ATC Winner... AND...

...another giveaway... I have to say THANK YOU to everyone who left lovely comments about the last ATC that was up for grabs... I decided to make another couple of ATC's for give aways... so as before, please leave me a comment here if you would like one of these new ones. Oohhh, and I very nearly forgot (I didn't really... just joking LOL) the winner of the Cogs & Roses ATC was chosen at Random.org by the machiney thing that is in the computer... not very scientific way of chosing, I popped the numbers 1 - 40 in (I had 40 comments) and it chugged, churned and chucked out... number 30... which tallies with NETTY.... so thank you hun and please can you email me your addy and I will post it to you :O))




So these old paper roses are as addictive as the ATC's they are being made for. I can't tell you how much I lurve the Tim Holtz papers... well, I could tell you but I would be here for yonks, extolling the virtues of the patterns, colours, quality etc...see, I am off again *even over here I have no control over my wafflings ROFL* Anyways, the roses were made with the medium sized flower from the Flower Power set (note a pattern of addiction emerging here?) I stamped them onto the ickle 2" square bits of the papers... cut them out, assembled them into roses... and cos this paper is soooo lush, it stays curled! I used the Vintage Shabby stack for this first one... adding some ATC sized paper onto mountboard... using Idea-ology Foliage behind the roses, tying some Jute around the ATC, using the Mini Brads for the corners, using my old date stamp... a couple of Tim stamps in Aged Mahogany and colouring the edges with this... and some Pumice Stone...these DI's were made to go together weren't they? The ticket..erm... is a new one, from the 100th collection.. which should be here by early October... we will keep you posted about that though... erm, my ticket stamp is from the gold signed 100th collection... oh, I mentioned that before did I?? ROFL





This next ATC was made with the Lost & Found Stack, using the same Flower Power stamp, adding on some Jute, stamping with mini Tim Holtz images (that reads funny, not Tim Holtz is mini, the stamps are!!!) I used a Memo Pin under the rose, dangling a Philosophy Tag from it with a Jump Ring... the letters are also from the stack... popped onto mountboard, then inked edges, sanded a bit and then coated with Glossy Accents.




Thanks for looking... if you would like to own either of these ATC's, please just leave me a comment and I will do the Random jobby again and announce the peeps drawn on Sunday 15th...




And if you are coming to Stamperama, I can hand them over to you in person, otherwise, I will post them out to you .. I am doing Make & Takes on Sunday... so if you are there, please do come and say hi... it would be lovely to meet you! `:O)) have a great day... TTFN
