It's Monday ...

ATC 287a

and we all know what that means!

Yup ... Think Monday Think ATC.

The challenge this week is friendship ... and I have no  idea what happened in the making of this ATC! I picked the lady stamp because they looked like old friends ... that makes sense! Then I masked them and stamped the sentiment ... all about friends ... yup! that makes sense too!

Then I coloured the ATC with Peeled paint distress inks and used some sequin waste to add depth ... then I sort of well ... lost the plATC 287ot really.

I was humming something or other and before I knew it I had coloured and cut out a load of Tilda sunflowers ... well the colours went lovely and from there I just got carried away!

Somewhere along the line I was trying to represent the light and shade of a friendship ... as for the stitches ... don't even go there!

What a grand stamp this is, Linda! The two ladies look like friends to me. As for the sunflowers, well, they certainly look great. And the background is beautiful too. The stitches give it a somewhat bandana look.
