Flowers in the Rain...

News Flash...........My last two ATC's for the Craft Barn Q & L challenge ART/ROAD  HERE have won a prize of ....a gift voucher £20 to spend at the Craft Barn..........I shall be shopping later.......Thank you Craft Barn this is the icing on the cake for a very enjoyable challenge.

Time for  The Craft Barn Qand L challenges  this fortnights words are Flowers/and or Travel.
 I have made 2 ATC's, firstly for Flowers I have chosen to go with Lyrics for the song "Watching flowers in the rain" rooted well into the sixties by The Move. I searched for it on UTube Here if you want to sing along, careful it is addictive I have been singing and humming it all week!!!!

I started with a piece of cream card from my bit box which I cut with TH ATC die, this piece had been stencilled with rusty hinge (I think) flowers so I stamped  larger flowers over the top.    I used Free Stamps from Craft Stamper Magazine over this ,the flower was stamped in vintage photo distress ink and the girls eyes in espresso adirondack ink, words printed in word and edged in vintage photo.
I searched for a quote and came across this one which I really liked.  Background was again a piece from my bit box cut with Tim's ATC die and had a mixture of stamping and paint on it, I tore bits of TH tissue tape and attached them to the background, quote was printed and edges inked.

Thanks for looking
'till next time


  1. Both of these are fantastic. I really like the way you illustrated the flowers with the eyes predominate and the flowers in the background. You did a fantastic job with the challenge. And congrats on your win, too.

  2. Very different but both are equally as appealing Maggie, you definitely have a way with ATCs. Fab! Chris xxx
