Finally took the plunge…trading ATCs

1 Comment

I finally decided to join a few ATC swap places so I could maybe exchange some of my ATCs with others. It’s a minefield, I tell ya! I worry all the time that I will mess up a swap, send the wrong item, that people will hate them, that I will hate something I get…. Doesn’t help I wrecked my back AGAIN and have been hobbling around for a few days unable to do much crafty “work” cause sitting at my desk is a struggle, except when the painkillers are in my system in full force. Before that happened I did complete some ATCs. My Lunar Series cards are all made from the backgrounds I created with the Vaseline resist/Distress Oxides technique, a couple of stamps, a torn strip of tracing paper sprayed with gloss spray, a die cut and quotes from men who walked on the moon. Not sure if the stamps are actually of the moon, but call it artistic license.

I really like them, and they are not so cluttered that they don’t show the backgrounds to good effect. I am playing around with the tracing paper sample too, but not managed to do much. It’ll have to wait till my back is all better!

WOYWW tomorrow. Might be a messy desk if I don’t feel up to cleaning….

Bah!

  1. i used to oganise an atc swap on a forum years ago…all was going very well when some of the particpaters children joined in too and I couldn’t think how to swap, which with what?! So I put them somewhere safe while I made some more and had a think about it…10 years later I have never found them! At one time i was sure I posted them but, no… if I do ever find them, complete with their stamped address envelopes, I could post them on…it would be a bit of a surprise! Yours are fab! Keep on ATCing! ((Lyn))
