Belated ATCs

These are two ATCs which, embarrassingly, I was supposed to send out in a swap weeks ago ..... and I forgot :-( I'm really sorry Netty!

They are called 'Time to get in Gear' and 'Look into my Eyes....' LOL. 'Gear' has a smooshy ink background, overstamped with various swirls and a retro border. Then I added the embossed metal panel and the ribbon, bow and charm. The gears are the largest Nestie sprocket, cut up into segments - I outlined them with a zig pen as they didn't stand out enough. A few gems to finish off.

'Look ......' is much simpler! I stamped and embossed the owl - an old Elusive Images design now available from Chocloate Baroque - using verdigris embossing powder, then smooshed distress inks over the top. The embossed image acts as a resist so only the card is coloured. Two gems for the hypnotic eyes and it was done!

I hope the recipient likes them after all the time she has had to wait ........
