Tuesday Taggers touchy feely!

Yes we are feeling all touchy feely over at Tuesday Taggers this week for 2 reasons. The first is our Teamie Zoe has challenged us to use texture in our projects. As luck would have it, as I was wondering what to do, some atc elements popped through the letterbox in the form of Bobs ATC challenge. This is my first and also my last challenge as Bobs has decided she has to stop hosting it. Basically there are around 20 folks in the challenge (which has run for I think 3 years) Bobs sends bits and bobs to them - all the same elements and then receives 20 atcs back all different! Ive seen some of her folders and the idea is seriously cool with such variety with the same bits its amazing.

So I received the stamped image, the piece of textured fabric, a chipboard key and a small skeleton leaf. You cant see the leaf but its there behind the key.
I have used promarkers to colour the image, stamped on the fabric and coloured the key then added crackle glaze. In record time Ive turned round the swap and this is winging its way back to Liverpool as I type - hope she likes it!
The second reason we are feeling the touchy feely love is our fabulous team mate has been published in craft stamper. We have known about her serious talent for a long time and she has been spotted on her blog by lots of you out there but hey our Pal is now in print! Well done you, we are sooo proud of you Michelle - just hope your copy has arrived this morning before you explode with anticipation LOL. If you dont subscribe to Craft Stamper do give it serious thought its one brilliant magazine and gusess what Michelles project has touchy feely on it too in the form of metal and embossing - go and get your copy on Friday and check her out!
Do stop by Tuesday Taggers too for some serious touchy feely inspiration the girls over there are awesome!
