Two Much Wit Makes You Hoo

Hello.  Welcome.  A special hi and hello to Amy who has joined my elite following.  Thank you and all my followers for your support of my little crafty corner.  I'm in an ATC mood today.  There's a couple coming together so it could be a hat trick today.  We all need a little magic in our lives. 

I had a friend visit tonight to do a little crafting so I'm a little late with this, but hopefully not too late....

I was playing with distress re-inkers the other day, blobbing them on some card which turned out to be a bit too absorbent.  Today whilst I had my Sizzix ATC die out I decided to chop up the not totally pleasing piece of card and ended up with 5 very pleasing ATC blanks.  Well, not totally blank you understand.....  So I stamped Stampotiques Little Hoo Hoo onto card and coloured with pro-markers.  I added glossy accents to the horns, eyes and teeth of the monster and also to the owl's eyes.  The barbed wire is a Cheery Lynn die cut from acetate and coloured with black pro-marker.  Haven't had so much trouble getting a decent photo for ages.  Glare from the glossy accents and the acetate was murder.  Do they look like they are in front of a firing squad to you??  Scary love.....

Thanks for your visit.  Back soon.......


  1. Not too late for the Stampotic Designers' Challenge, Gail! What a fun, fun, fun ATC...where one can get a lot of art into a very small space! Cute image! Thanks for participating again this week. Love to see you here!

  2. Love the little monster fab ATC. It's amazing how different a piece of coloured card you dislike can look totally different when cut into smaller pieces.
