Today was my monthly ATC meeting. Our theme- Calligraphy-letters or numbers. Here is what I created:
 I used Rogue Redhead images from the Floriculture plate and used the color palate from the Rogue Redhead current challenge-Spring color palette for my designing.  I used Ranger Distress inks, a paint pen and a Stardust Gelly Roll pen for my ATC. I used the sentiment from the set and left off the F when stamping- and added my own 'F' in calligraphy.

Challeges for my ATC's:
Rogue Redhead-Spring Fashion Colors
Crazy 4 Challenges-Gardening or great outdoors
ATC's and cards with Attitude- Anything goes/one layer
Wicked Wednesday ATC challenge- Spring Fever
Alphabet Challenge- G is for garden

In addition to our theme swap, we make one ATC for a 1-4-1 exchange.

 I used a napkin adhered to my ATC base, added a border punched and added my Calligrapgy sentiment- made with Distress Ink and cut out, I added Sakura Gelly Roll Pen for shimmer on the letters and on the dragonfly.

Here are the rest of the ATC's I traded for:
Cindy- she said this is a stamp with added doodles and painted with Twinkling H2O's

Carol- this is either a picture of Carol OR her Mother......awesome!

This pretty one by Debbie

On the Lt- tis is by Mari and on the Rt- Harriet

 And this beauty is by Mary.

Finally, this is the 1-4-1 ATC I rec'd- done by Harriet.

Thanks for stopping by!

Shelly, these are all so pretty! Each one is so unique, they must really convey some of their creator's personality. It looks like a really fun group of friends.
