ATC Swap for February! Parterns posted in opening post
« on: January 30, 2015, 07:58:35 AM »
Ready for month 2?

This month's theme will be love. It can be your standard heart, love birds, etc. images. Or you can use a stamp that you really love!
And this month, we will have a technique requirement. Your technique requirement will be ink smooshing!
This is one of my favorite techniques and I just made a couple of cards using it and I thought it would be a fun one to do with an ATC.
If you are unfamiliar with it, here's a link to a video showing how it's done.
http://www.catherinepooler.com/2014/07/ink-smooshing-wink-stella-pink-sweetie/

If you can't watch the video, basically you ink up your acrylic block(distress inks tend to work best) and spritz with water. Stamp that onto paper, let dry and you end up with a really unique background.
Lot's of colors and combos you can do!

Sign ups are through 02.03 and I will post your partner on the 4th. Your send by will be Feb 16th.

Melissa, Pm'd me that she would be out of town but wanted me to sign her up so she's on for the month. I'm putting it here so I don't forget!

Here's the swap list for the month, Just PM your partner if you need their address.

HowdyHeidi to Iring
Caribbeangirl to YellowCherrios
Iring to Looser
Craft Nerd to CaribbeanGirl

I'm in. I liked the video, I wouldn't have thought to put those three colors together that she did. 

Thanks for hosting!

Hey, Pug! I've decided to send my ATC direct to the swapmate.

About the 'smoosh'...? I 'know' I followed the basic directions, but looking at it now, I wonder how I did it. LOL!

I've got my ATC started.  And some extra smooshed papers made their way into my kit for the KIAE.  I should be able to finish it up this weekend, if not before.

Cindi, I found an envelope with your address on it and your ATC is out in the mailbox right now. :) 

I love this ATC swap, I am finding it quick, creative and fun to make them comparied to the tags.  And so much more flat to send!
