These are my ATCs for this months swap on the UK Stampers Forum. This month's theme is children.

For the top one I started with an inked background using pale yellow and aqua, inked parts of it through some sequin waste, stamped text in pale yellow and then the swirls in aqua. I then stamped the main image in the middle, masking the lower corners because I didn't want straight edges, and the word love underneath. I stamped the heart on a separate piece of card, inked it in aqua, cut it out and stuck it on. I then added the pieces of mesh at the corners for a bit of texture.
The second one was done in a similar way with the background done using pale yellow and pink, with a bit of brown around the edges to give it a slightly distressed appearance. It doesn't show up in the photo but I also spritzed this one with gold Cosmic Shimmer spray. I then stamped a text and swirly background image in the yellow with bits of pink and a further text stamp at opposite corners using yellow and brown. I stamped the main image in black and then added some gold embossing powder aroud the edges, and finally added a bit of Stickles to the wings to make them stand out.

For the final one, I again started with an inked background, this time in pink and lilac with a bit of darker purple around the edges. I stamped over the background in pale lilac with a lace pattern stamp and then stamped the main image in black. I then coloured some lace using the same inks, added it to two of the corners and added som Paperartsy German Scrap borders. I finally added some layered Prima flowers at the bottom which I attached with a gold brad, and some Stickles on the wings.
