Penny Black ATC swap

I just love making ATC's, especially if my Mojo is on a go slow.... it really is cool just to do such little treasures... so when I saw that Felicia had posted a swap over at Penny Circle I joined up.  I got paired with Felicia and we decided to do a 4 ATC swap... not particular theme ~ just whatever took our fancy.  So I pulled out some of my Penny Black stamps and a stickeroo or two... and came up with these 4 little goodies.... all very different!!!
Live Love Laugh ATC

this one used A PB kitty stamp and I did some distressing.  Used Copic to colour.

Stickaroo ATC

this one used a Stickeroo... just had to trim the bottom off.  The sentiment is a Kaisercraft one.

Dream ATC

this one uses one of my favourite Penny Black flowers.... Gossamer Flower.  I coloured it with some glimmer paints and used a gold calligraphy pen to make the frame.

And finally
Flower ATC
My favourite of the lot.... For this I used Pearl Ex powders.  I stamped the flower in Versamark and brushed on the powders.  Stamped the PB sentiment with Colourbox Frost White and then set the lot with Hairspray.  I used a dry square paint brush to swipe white ink onto the edges.

Felicia let me know they had arrived safely in Singapore.

Are you having a good weekend?  I am TIRED... we went out to dinner last night with friends.... a great meal with brilliant company and then called in to Hubby's nephew's 21st party.... and got home at 2.00am this morning!   Getting too old for this caper!  Certainly will be retiring early tonight that's for sure.
