ATC: 'garden of love'

Tilda & Friend's ATC theme this week is 'hearts' but it doesn't have to be valentine, just anything with hearts. I've used this cute heart tree (Toodles & binks stamp) to make this really quick ATC

which I then turned into this card (so they are always useful as card toppers if you're not into trading ATCs):

  • Images: tree and sentiment from 'grow a little love' stamp from Stamp galaxy & the bird is actually off the top of another 1 of their stamps 'Adam' that I cut out and stuck on 3d foam
  • Colouring: Copics then glittery fluffy stuff on the hearts but too subtle to see in the photo - IRL they are fluffy to the touch :)
  • Papers: sheet from old DCWV spring stack with scrap kraft cardstock and pale yellow card base
  • Others: Martha stewart fence punch (can you tell I love this punch!), embossing on the yellow piece behind the tree (thought it looked like cobblestone path), distresser tool around the edges, lots of faux stitching, ribbon and brad and a bit of doodling to finish.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to finish my CCT card for tomorrow then a quick blog hop/catch up before work later. (Still waiting for my post too . . grrr why is it, it is always so late when you are expecting something?!) Have a good evening.
