Wild and Windy Tuesday

Another ATC and Wicked Wednesday Challenge

Hi everyone OMGoodnes it is sooooo windy here and the rain has just started, I have spent all morning moving things in the garden to make them secure, the wind has broken my whirly line snapped it off in the ground so that will have to wait for DH to get back as it is stuck fast.  After the morning events I decided to retire to my craft room and do some Christmas crafting but my Christmas mojo seems to have gone awol!!!!  So I have made an ATC instead for the Wicked Wednesday which this week is Books/Reading Challenge. 

I love reading and have so many favourites so really struggled to choose just one thing, and then I remembered a super quote I had found which summed up exactly what books mean to me..... so this is what I based my ATC on.

Quote was printed onto card and inked with DI tea dye  torn edges were also inked in same ink, a page was torn from an old dictionary, this was inked in tea dye and spun sugar and stamped with a flower image and embossed in white, I also stamped same flower head at the top of my ATC onto the background which was a piece of Tim Holtz papers, edges were also inked with tea dye.

Storm is raging outside again so will quickly post this as I feel we may have power cuts!!!!!!

Bye for now
