A NEW ATC CHALLENGE BLOG

Thank you to Gez for finding this new ATC challenge blog and sharing it with us. I love ATCs having been introduced to them by Leonie Pujol many years ago now. Through her and the cards, I have made the most wonderful crafty friends all over the country, and am now an avid crafter of other paper projects. My life changed from that magical day.
The new blog, ATC Challenges, starts with - Anything Goes. They will run this first challenge for 3 weeks then expect to announce new ones each fortnight. Yippeeee!
I made this card a few weeks ago.
The background is mopped up distress inks and re-inkers from my craft sheet, spritzed with copper perfect pearls. The rose is made from the medium flower stamp from the Artistic Stamper range - Flower Power - cut from the Tim Holtz lost and found stash. The black flower is a die cut from Tim's tattered florals embossed with hologram powder and the Artistic Stamper's mini chicken wire  stamp. The branches are made with a Martha Stewart punch.
The black lace covers the holes where I threaded wire through the card to make the bead loops - they took me an age to make!. Finally, the words are torn pieces of Tim's tissue tape.
I hope to join in these challenges over the coming months and am intrigued to think what the subjects might be.
