Wacky Wednesday and Free Digi at Firecracker Designs by Pamela

Each Wednesday Pamela at Firecracker Designs offers one stamp set for 50% off. This week, the set is right up my alley- it is an ATC set.
The ATC 2009 set is only $4.49 today only- until 11:59PM tonight. No coupon or code is needed- it is this price in the store.
I used the Turtle set available at FCD-stamped it on Glossy White CS, colored with SU markers and clear embossed it and the leaves. I stamped the background image with Teal and sponged on Bashful Blue.  I added some accents- the background is the background whimsy from the Technique Junkies.
Always sign the back of your work when you make and trade ATC’s- I like to document what I used-because I have a bad memory!  If I look back later, I can see what inks I used, etc…..
Pamela also has a FREE Digital image available until the weekend- Grab it HERE.
I made this card with the freebie:
I colored with Copics and wanted to add glitz- but this is going to Iraq- so no glitter is allowed.  So, I added glitz with Silver Metallic sewing thread and did some stitching around the edges of the card.
For the turtle card:
Stampin Sisters in Christ-use an animal
One Stop Craft- make your own DP
R/W/B card:
Operation Write Home-Sketch
Aly’s- sewing
Caardvarks-Embossing- I use the good old fashion wet embossing with EP

One more thing- over at the Crafters Digital Art Center-a forum for Digi papercrafters, Pamela has a Sketch Challenge posted in the FCD Group with a chance to win a digital image- we’d love to have you join us!
Thanks for stopping by today
