ATC - Something to do while I wait.

I am in limbo at the moment. Not enough time to get really 'into' a project but just enough time to do a little tinkering. I work late shifts in the week and find that having to get ready for work at 6pm gets in the way of major crafting on those days!

Anyway, I was pleased to see that the Fun With ATCs listed their challenge #95 so I hurried over to see what the theme was. Great! Another challenge that is almost 'Anything Goes'. I say almost because it is colour themed so I can use any of my stamps, dies, techniques, ideas, and still fit in with the challenge.

Black/White/Red is the theme. Crisp, clear colours and easily dealt with in my opinion. As is tradition I took my folder, which contains a stamped image of every single one of my stamps, down from the shelf and began to thumb through the images. I have them in themes, and first is FLORAL. Didn't take me long to select the stamp I wanted to use. It didn't take me long to decide on the design either which is such a bonus.

And here it is......

A die cut butterfly, a word, some torn paper ribbon, a couple of gems and there she is!! Look, you can tell it is fresh, the glue around the big gem is still wet!

It is now my tea time, a quick intake of calories before heading off to work till 2am. Don't worry, it's what I do and I actually really love my job.

Go see all the other B/W/R ATCs HERE. I'm going to add mine, why not have a go and add yours there to?

Please leave a comment, I love getting them.
