ATC Swap- Inchies plus a few more.......

 My ATC group had a theme of inchies this month.  My inchie is a plain simple inch of CS inked with a SU stamp from Clearly for you, and a dimensional butterfly added. It is water painted with a touch of Plum and a little shimmer added.   My ATC base done with a TJ technique called Newsprint Reveal (4/5 2009 newsletter).

  Here are all of the inchie ATC's from the trade
           Mari (LT) hand stitching on the inchie; and Susan

                               Debbie M and Cindy K.

Diane M- Irridescent Medium and reinker- very very shimmery- and Mary W (Kleenex box)

                       Harriet and Carol

                                Michelle and Diane S.

and finally, Lori K

One of the other things we do is a 1-4-1 swap- it can be the theme of the swap or not......
Here is mine:

I used Gesso Resist technique- shimmery IRL
The one I recieved:
 By Michelle
The group as a whole 1-4-1swap ATC's
and I photographed them individually as well:

Diane S, Diane Marr, and Harriet's (upside down-oops)

Debbie and Michelle

 Susan and Carol-Carol's is a folding ATC- I hope to learn HOW to make this!

Cindy K (opens up and there is a sentiment and the inchie inside) and Mari

 Lori K and mine.

A couple more to show you for today:
Mary W showed us how to do thin vinal cutting- I do not know where to get this thin vinal- also how to cut and transfer the design using packing tape:
Here is an ATC Diane M made using the technique:

                         And, a couple more-these are 'extra's:
Diane M, - another with the Iridescent medium and Mary W made Easter ATC's to share-this is the one I chose.
The swap is generally 12 ATC's -depends on how many swappers can make the meeting. Some artists make all different ATC's.....some make them all the same.  Next month....hand drawn ATC's.......I better get working on that right away- I am not gifted in drawing!

Thanks for stopping by- have a great day!
