The Stamp Man challenge and ATC swap

Time for a new challenge at the Stamp Man challenges so do hop on over to the blog and find out more. We are challenged to use a sketch and or alcohol inks. I decided to run free with the alcohol inks which are one of my fav products from Ranger. joining in the challenge is not just fun but a prize is up for grabs each time too - with so many gorgeous things in the shop who would not love spending this prize!
For this atc I have used espresso, caramel and pink sherbet. I don't own may of the lights collection but do love the lighter tomes they bring so I may have to invest in more. (any excuse for another shopping trip huh?) I have used a diecut butterfly my pal gave me in shrink plastic and coloured that in the same colours - look how different they look in concentrated form!
Some trusty Tim Holtz stamps and archival ink and a few alcohol inked buttons from the sale room at the stamp Man and its done. Quite pink for me I think!

Now onto the ATC swap too
This month is vintage so here I have used the vintage car from the aspects of design men's stamp plate. This is quite a recent purchase for me and I love how there is a mini version of each vehicle for you to add to an embelishment - in my case the tiny tag. More archival inks, a touch of distress and a coin from my stash and its nearly done. I decided it needed a bit of distressing so attacked it with the distress tool then mounted on some green card. So there it is my Vintage atc for this months swap. - Will you be joining in this month? I do hope so - co-ordinating the swap is such fun getting to see so many mini works of art - I feel very lucky. here is the blog

have a fabulous Friday x Janet
