ATC - Stamp and Swap

It's the first of the month and a brand new theme on the ATC - Stamp and Swap Blog. This month's theme is Silhouettes and here are some of mine
Each one has been created using a piece of white card and a post-it-note circle to make a sun or a moon. Ink has then been sponged over to create a background. I then took some solid silhouette stamps and stamped them in black ink - or in the case of the green one - green.
The green ATC has been sponged with Handsome Hunter ink and a stamp from the Stampin' Up set Pocket Silhouettes was stamped using the same ink. A piece of copy paper was ripped, placed on the upper part of the ATC and a darker layer of ink was added to make a hill.
The blue ATC was sponged with Brocade Blue ink and the moon was sponged with Daffodil Delight. The stamps used are my own designs and the trees were stamped twice before re-inking to give depth to the scene.
The final ATC was sponged with Pumpkin Pie ink and Chocolate Chip. The stamped image is one I rescued from the bin after my friend Bev had visited so I'm sorry I don't know where it comes from but it was too nice to waste!!
All the details of the swap are over on the blog so please hop over and take a look and maybe even join in - it would be great to see you there - Jacqueline xx.
