UK stampers challeng journal week 2 and ATC's

Today I worked on my week 2 journal page for UK stampers weekly challenge. This weeks prompt word is GIFT

1 Your best gift? could be any occasion and any time

2 Your worst? " "

3 Include some recycled packaging / recycled card on your page.
So here is my page.

The background of the page is stamped using Anna griffin fancy diamond stamp in a harlequin pattern. I then wiped it with a baby wipe to soften the stamping. The image is cut from our 1997 Christmas card and is created from a painted image I had done of Belle that year. So that is my recycled card. I also added some red stitching with my sewing machine and some gold star ribbon at the top. I then foiled around the title and page edges.

Next project I worked on today were my ATC's for The Stamp Mans January swap. The theme this month is Rhymes and Tales. I chose Star Light Star Bright.

I cut out and added pop dots to the image and top grass layer to add dimension as shown above.

The stamp of the girl is from Stampin up and coloured with promarkers. The grass stamp is from Tim Holtz. For the background I sprayed Dylusions spray inks. The star burst is done with Smooch pearl and a star cut from ribbon in the middle. I could not decide how I liked the title so I put it on white card on and handwritten around the card edge on 1.

Thanks for stopping in and taking a peek. I hope you have a wonderful day.
