Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

alcohol ink

I participated in a Big Summer 50 Inchie swap on Rubber Stamp Chat! The swap was no more than 5 of the same design and any theme. One extra for the hostess was all that was required plus postage. Cool eh?

I embossed many of them and used alcohol inks for many backgrounds. It was fun and I can’t wait to get 50 back!

Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are a fantastic way to use up pieces of paper and embellishments. Oh – and of course to use stamps on them! I’ve joined a couple swaps for ATCs and have a monthly ATC club that I belong to, so today was “make the ATCs day”. All of them are themed and have their own personality. Check them out:
