Teen inspired ATC

Here is my ATC that I made for the Tilda and Friends challenge - which is to create a teen inspired ATC. It's been a little while since I made an ATC and I forgot how fun they are ... watch this space as I've caught the ATC bug again!

I used my "Shine Anya" stamp for this ATC - coloured her with my copics and used Creative memories paper + stickers! I also used my new "glossy accents" that I purchased from Marcia
at the Stamp Spot! LOVE that effect and think you'll be seeing a bit of that in future here too!! :)

Oh, BTW, There are NEW Greeting farm stamps available now at the Stamp spot... and some scrummy looking Primas... check them out!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Here's Kellie's sketch:

And here is my card:

I had a lot of fun with this .... I made a window card - the Greeting Farm stamp - "Hope and Grace Sing" is on the inside (through the window)... hard to get the best shot of this card ... Here's another angle:

I'm still playing around with Aperture that I got with my new computer a little while ago... so sorry if the photos are a bit different in colour.... will get there I hope!

Thanks for looking!
