ATC Swap for May

I am definately on a roll now. Just finished up my cards for the May ATC swap over at ATC Swappers. This months theme was "Tall Tales" which could be story characters, fairy tales or such. I chose to do 4 princess tales - Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella.
The first card on the top left is Sleeping Beauty. I stamped the back of the card with Tim holtz stamps and added pink droplets for floral buds using Smooch. I then printed out the story and distressed the paper. This I added on the card then printed a spinning wheel, distressed it and added that on top. I then stamped using the edge of another Tim Holtz stamp over for a thorn branch look. Simple as it is I think this is my favourite.
The next to the right is Snow White. I inked the background again with Tim holtz stamps and distress inks. Added white stazon on the edges. I placed a snow white image under vellum and used Inkadinkado frame stamp for the mirror. I hand cut the apple and added glossy acccents. To the bottom left is Beauty and the Beast. I chose to do a rose for this one layering lace between. I used Close to my heart rose stamps and distress/chalk inks.
The last is Cinderella. I inked and stamped the background with Distress inks and Anna griffin flourish stamps. The clock stamp is from close to my heart. The castle and carriage are cut from a fantasy themed frame I bought about 10 years ago. Sorry I do not have a maker for it since it had no packaging. Hope you like them. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for all the wonderful comments on my last few posts. I love reading them all.
Have a wonderful night. Angela

These look great Angela. I don't know why you'd be worried that were not 'acceptable'.
Thanks for joining in with the swap and helping to spread the news,
