Where Did That Week Go?

Blimey ... Where did that week go? One minute it was Sunday and I was posting for Simon Says Stamp and Show ... then the next minute ... it was Sunday again and here I am!
This week the theme at Simon Says Stamp and Show is Handmade Backgrounds ... I decided on some ATC's with lots of Dylusions stamps and sprays ... with of course ... some Wild Honey Distress Stain and lots of Lord Tim of Holtz background stamps! You know Tim ... the man that named all of the planets during breakfast while building an scale model of the Statue of Liberty out of an ice cube with just a swipe of an Aged Mahoghany Distress Ink Pad and the lid from a bottle of Glossy Accents.
So ... what have I been up to with the week that flew by I hear you ask??? Well ... I popped over to see the Birds in the Barn in Colchester to chat over a demo day and a class ... lovely ladies ... and a lovely store ...more details of that soon! The lovely Karen booked me for a couple of days demoing at Coleman's ... that will be fun ... I went out for a Curry and shot some Pool ... I think that is the correct terminology ... and that is about it ... well the edited highlights ... I won't bore you with the domestic duties I fulfilled ... as for this week ... it's my birthday on Friday ... so I am hoping to get very spoiled indeed!
Okay ... if you fancy joining in with the challenge this week for a chance to win a $50 Shopping Spree at Simon Says Stamp then just pop over here to see all the details!
Have a good week y'all!
Laters!

I love the bright, warm colours of these ATCs. Can I ask a technical question? Are you stamping the images straight onto the background and then colouring them (and, if so, how do you colour them without the background colours showing through?) or are you stamping them separately and cutting them out and attaching?

HI Ali ... I am stamping them seperately cutting them out and attaching them!
