3 of a kind ATCs and new pic of Sunflower

Another grey and foggy day here in North Yorkshire. I am really wishing for some sun soon. I could use a vitamin D fix. Today we had to take the car for some new tires so there were a few hours to pass at the shoppes. We happened to find this awesome store "Home Sense". We browsed the isles and found some nice things. I love finding bargains and boy did we find some great ones.

So on the creative front my ideas are still slow at coming but I finally finished my ATCs for the 3 of a kind ATC swap on UK Stampers Forum. Here they are. Sorry the first picture is not too good but my flash is acting up.

The 3 red flowers on the first ATC are my 3 of a kind there. I stamped them on a blank napkin using Close to My Heart stamps then added them to the card using a gloss medium that came with my Napkin kit. The background is stamped with a clear script text stamp from unknown origin. I also used distress inks to color the background.
The second flower ATC has Roses done the same way using napkins and an unknown rose stamp(it is the rose from the middle of a circle stamp) the napkin was colored using shimmer paint that also came with my kit. The background is stamped with a mesh stamp from the Stamp Man (Christmas set)It is embossed with Gold and inked with Distress inks. The edges are foiled with gold. I was going to use the Rose stamp as my 3 of a kind but I am not sure if it qualifies since they are overlapping so I added something else. The 3 of a kind on this ATC are the 3 orange gems.

The 3rd ATC using a Close to my Heart Seahorse stamp inked in walnut ink then embossed with Moonglow Angel Wings gold. the background is Distress inks and the edges are torn strips of napkin edges. My 3 of a kind here are the Seahorses.

So this is the extent of my creative projects so far. Maybe tomorrow will bring some more ideas. Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day. Angela
