HLS ATC Challenge: Set of 3


Hello everyone, I have been a bit behind, but I am posting my ATCs that were October for the HLS challenge blog.  This challenge is now over, but that doesn't mean you can't still use it for inspiration!


HLS ATC Challenge: Die Cuts

I have a fun set of ATCs to share with you today for the Happy Little Stampers challenge blog.  The theme this month is die cuts.  Hope to see you there!




I started with a partial page of gelli printed background that I had created using a large feather stencil and some color clocking.  I love feathers, and I thought this was perfect to pair with some feather die cuts.


I cut out the feather shapes in both black and white to add extra interest and offset them. I created a shadow behind the white with my black Stabilo Marks All pencil and activated it with water.



Next I chose some Tim Holtz Big Chatz stickers and backed them with a white banner.  I also created a shadow behind the white banner with my Stabilo pencil.



Lastly, I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in black to add some shine to each one.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you enjoy the fun inspiration the team has created for you this month!  Come and join us over on the HLS Challenge blog and show us what you create!

Happy Little Stampers September ATC Challenge: Ocean/Sea

Happy Little Stampers' ATC Challenge theme this month is Ocean/Sea and this happens to be one of my favorite themes and color schemes :)  I also happen to love the water, it is my happy place.  It's so peaceful.

HLS September Watercolor Challenge: Tropical Theme

Robin S Sharma once wrote:  Getting lost along your path is part of finding the path you are meant to be on. When I finished this "Lost and Found" watercolor piece this summer, I knew it had something to do with finding my path in my art.
