Vintage ATCs

Red Lead Vintage Artistry ATC Art Swap
We all love Vintage and we all love Artsy so this ATC Swap is  a great mix of both. We were to stamp, paint, draw, sew, tear, collage, and mix and mingle Red Lead stamp images and collage sheets!  Here are the three ATCs I made for the swap.  I will be getting back three ATCs from the Red Lead Swap Sisters plus a Red Lead goody bag.



Gingersnap Creations Once in a Blue Moon Challenge - 3 Words. 3 Papers and 3 Buttons! Closes July 26, 2011.

At Gingersnap Creations, we have a recipe challenge underway to triple your inspiration. Show us what creative ways you can mix up these ingredients: 3 papers, 3 buttons, three words.  For more challenge details and to link up your creation, click here for GCSOP8RECIPE.  You have until July 26th to link your creation.  Our June sponsor, Altered Pages, is providing a prize.

This is the ATC I made for the Red Lead swap that also incorporates the Gingersnap ingredients.
