Architecture

This is the basis for these ATC's for TMTA this week. I used stamps from Cherry Pie Arts and The Queen's Dresser Drawers. Both manufacturers have some stunning collections.

For this first ATC I chalked the background iwth smoky blue and creamy brown chalk eyes in roughly the right places and then stamped a London skyline. To bring out the buildings I added Crackle accents to emphasise their age.

This second ATC was made by again chlaking the background with chalk eye, but this time I stamped the London Residence on a separate piece of paper, cut it out, chalked the edges and then applied it using mounting pads so it is slightly raised off the surface. I then hand wrote the title on card, cut it out and glued it onto the ATC and then added crackle accents.
Hope you like them. Well it is a very wet Sunday mornign here, so its off to finish the housework, get my school work done ready for tomorrow, and maybe find a little bit of time to craft, it is supposed to be the day of rest after all!!
