Helga, the owner of ARTchix Studio, has a challenge on her blog this week to make an inchie every day for five days, or just make them all at once if you want.  I made mine this morning.  All images and words are from ARTchix.  I added some bling and German scrap - that's about all you can do in a one inch square!!  Thanks for looking!

Time is the theme for Louise's Tag Tuesday challenge.  I used distress inks for the background and then stamped the sun dial - an old Serendipity stamp.  Colored here and there with my new "at you Spica" sparkling gel pens.  Masked the image and added some lines and tiny flowers here and there.  Added the sentiment and butterflies and then the faux flowers with brad.  Edged with gold metallic marker - I use Pilot because they dry fast and never smear. 

Wish you could see the sparkle of the pens!!

Thanks for visiting!

ARTchix Biweekly lottery

The drawing for the last ARTchix yahoo group lottery was held on Sunday and I WON!!!  So happy to be getting such gorgeous ATC's from all the other participants.

My turn to choose the theme - RED AND WHITE.  The gals can choose to make it a Valentine or not. 

My entry uses images from ARTchix, a background with stamped hearts, some cute hugs and kisses ribbon and a shiny heart brad. 

If you are a member of the ARTchix yahoo group, please jump in and join the fun - the next drawing date is February 7th. 

Thanks for stopping by!

A day late with my 4 x 4 Friday entry.  All rubber stamps - and a bit of coloring added in.  Looks way better in person - oh, well!

Here is the second group of ATC's for Lenna's Valentine swap.  I had some beautiful hot pink paper with foiled hearts that I have been hoarding for years.  Used one sheet of it to cut into ATC sizes.  Images are from ARTchix Studio, as are the pink German scrap flowers.  Punched gold foil hearts with computer generated words.  Added metallic gold pen around the edges.  Simple, but I like the way they turned out.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Valentine ATC's for Lenna's swap

Lenna Andrews is hosting a Valentine ATC swap - a little on the "wild" side, she said.  I signed up to do two sets of four - here is the first set.  Lenna graciously sent some images to participants to use if they wanted.  These images were fun and I just added some sentiments.  Used patterned paper for the background; some foil sticker borders and hearts, and glittered around the edges. 

Still need to work on the second set!

Hello!  I am finally able to post to my blog again and am featuring some Valentine twinchies for a swap being hosted by Christy Laudig. 

Images are from ARTchix Studio's Love Post sheet.  Background is patterned paper with tiny hearts stamped on it.  The bling hearts are a pale yellow in color, which doesn't show up on the scan very well.  Computer generated words and some Stickles platinum glitter for highlights.  Also added some German scrap along the bottom.

Thanks for looking!
