It's all about words .......

Hello again ......

Whoo Hoo!!!! Guess where I am!?  Yep .... I'm at the Bredbury Hall Hotel & Country Club  over in Stockport near Manchester, on this year's Happy Little Stampers Craft Retreat.
As you've probably guessed this is a scheduled post as I should be in the middle of dinner, with the HLS boss herself .... Kylie, and the rest of the girls on the retreat ..... no doubt having a ball!

However, I might be off on a jolly but, the blog challenges still go on ..... this time it's the Happy Little Stampers ATC challenge


This month the theme is WORDS ......  just because ATC's are on the small side doesn't mean you have to skimp on the words ..... make them your focal point


I started out by colouring a large piece of cardstock using various colours of Distress Oxide inks and a little water to blend the colours, and then I cut it down into ATC size pieces (2.5 x 3.5 inches) ..... I got quite a few so I'll be using them as ATC bases in the future ........ watch this space

Each one of the ATC's was then spritzed with a mica spray to add some shimmer to the background, and I used various stencils and Distress Oxide inks to add more detail ......


Pearlescent paint through a stencil gives extra shimmer on one of the designs, and a touch of sparkle with a few die cuts stars and the odd dot of glitter glue .......


Each of the sentiments was stamped and heat embossed with a clear powder  ......


with a few white highlights here and there .....


Use your favourite phrases or sayings .......  or simply one word .... the choice is yours.

As with all of the HLS challenges there's a $20 Gift Certificate for the challenge winner to spend in the HLS store ..... this month it could be you!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy your weekend. I'm enjoying mine!

Cheerio until next time ......
