The swap hosted by Lenna Young Andrews requires that we make one ATC to trade, along with four postcards.  Each of these must include the use of one item from Alpha Stamps.  Two posts back, I uploaded the postcards I made for this swap.  Here is my ATC:

A few weeks ago I made a few ATC backgrounds using Ranger's Adirondack Dimensional Pearls.  I put a few drops of two colors on cardstock and spread them around with an old credit card.  Some were done with a red pepper and butterscotch combination; some with a lettuce and stream combination.  For this ATC, I used the red and butterscotch background and added rubber stamped tiny flowers (Magenta), a sentiment (Annette Watkins) and a loopy border (A Stamp in the Hand) to the background.  Then I used a pretty floral image from one of Alpha Stamps collage sheets plus a bee transparency from K and Company, also ordered from Alpha Stamps.  A bit of gold metallic pen around the edges to finish it off.

Now I need to make another ATC or postcard for Lenna (not required, but only fitting due to all the effort she puts into her swaps!) and get them in the mail.

Thanks for stopping by!
