Elfin Dance

This week’s challenge at Tilda and Friends is not to use any backing papers on your ATC.  You may make your own backgrounds in whichever medium you wish.  I started by spritzing some white card with Glimmer Mists, in purple and dark blue, until the entire surface was covered.  When this was dry, I found that I had to iron the card to make it flat again – at last, a use for my neglected iron!  After ironing the card flat, I cut it to ATC size, and put it through my Cuttlebug with the Divine Swirl embossing folder.  Then I sanded the swirls with a crafter’s sanding block to bring out some of the white card again.  I used a lovely stamped image from Pollycraft Designs, and coloured the darling little elf with Promarkers.  I added a sticky-backed ribbon, paper flowers, handmade photo corners and buttons, all from my stash, to embellish. 


Join us this week, and let your creativity loose on making a beautiful background for your ATC.  As always, we would love to see your work.
