Alphabet ATC's - N, O & P

Firstly I need to thank everybody who has left messages of condolences on the passing of my Mother-in-Law on the previous post. It is still a very sad time for us, but we are definitely receiving all the strenght we need to deal with it.

We have now received our Alphabet ATC's on the letters N, O & P back. Must say the ladies who took part have really done some amazing work on these. With this round we were not allowed to use any embellishments. It is quite hard not to use embellishments when you are so used to using them. Makes the old mind think again. I think it was a good change.

'N' is for Numbers. The background was done on a piece of kraft board which I painted with acrylic paint mixed with scumble. While it was still wet I stamped into it with some clear number and the letter 'n' stamps which I randomly attached to an acrylic block. Have no idea who the stamps are from. The '2' in the top corner is prick-n-stitch and the word Numbers was done on purple tape.

'O' for Octopus. For the background I put the blue cardstock through the Cuttlebug using the Tiny Bubbles folder and then just dabbed a silver ink pad over it. The octupus was stamped in orange. The stamp is from a local stamp company - Great Impressions in George.

'P' for Paisley, Parchment, Puzzle & Pink. Again the background was done with the Perfectly Paisley embossing folder in the Cuttleburg. The paisley stamp was stamped onto parchment paper with a little embossing done here and there. The stamp is from a Chiswick set.

Thanks so much again for your visit to my blog!! All your kind comments are much appreciated. I am off to start on some wedding card samples for a friend - she only needs 30, but she's has left it very late - she's getting married on the 19th of June!!

Hope all of you will have a wonderful week filled with all of the craft time you may wish for.
