Summer Sunshine ATC by Jennie

Hello and welcome to you all. 

We seem to have had some lovely weather just lately which put me in the mood of summer sunshine.  I am not normally a "yellow" person but thought I would give this colour a little outing for a change in one of my favourite ways to craft - on an ATC.

I have layered my ATC with a rounded rectangle shape to give it a bit of interest. I love the way the MDF will take anything thrown at it. This was really yellow when I first added the pigment powders so it took alot of water to get them thinned down to a colour I was happy with.

One of my favourite go to Calico Craft Parts pieces ...... the lovely keys.

And not forgetting the little tags which are always so useful.

A bit of fun and a simple ATC which my friends seem to love in lieu of birthday cards! It is always lovely to see these miniature art pieces adorning a mantlepiece long after the birthday.

As always thank  you for joining me today and happy crafting .... and I hope the summer sunshine continues!

  2. Summer sunshine is missing over here at the moment - so your gorgeous sunshine ATC helped a lot with lifting up my mood today, Jennie ;)
    And yes - ATCs make for perfect special birthday cards. I think so too.
