ATCs for May 2013

Thank you, Diane, for the tip! I changed to the Google Chrome browser et voila! Pictures! :)

So here are the ATCs I swapped with Miss Peach's mum this month...

This is "Through The Keyhole"
who's looking through the keyhole at you?
This is the inside!
It was a cat! (of course!)

Next this one is "Buttoned Up".
In the foreground in the internet image of a boot.
In the background is how I changed it.
Here's a close-up.
The make the buttons 3D I applied a
Sakura clear glaze pen over and over to build it up.
Lots of stamps and glitter :)

This one is "Blowing In The Wind":

This next one was an open themed one, 
we just had to use glossy card.
So I used a Beatrix Potter decoupage :)

This next one had to refer to Walter de la Mare.
It's a triple fold.
Here's the front:

Opened out,
a poem
(featuring a cat!)

The other side:

Lastly, the theme "April" was set.
This one is called "April Showers".
Underneath the vellum:
UK peeps might recognise the picture as
being from the packaging of
"Yorkshire Tea" :)


Hope you enjoyed looking at them. I've been enjoying the challenge of having a theme and then having to think something up for it!

Love, tea & cake,
