ATC Challenge

It's not often I do a challenge for one of the challenge sites. It's not that I don't want to - far from it - but I can't seem to work quickly enough :-) Have you seen how quickly some people can get their challenges on the site? How do they do it?! I need at least a day to digest the information. Despite my extensive rubber stamp collection, I never seem to have quite the right stamp for the occasion. I obviously don't have ENOUGH stamps LOL!
So anyway, here is my ATC for the Think Monday Think ATC. See what I mean about being slow? I'm already a day late! Anyway, after ever such a lot of deliberating I managed to come up with a colour theme and used an emboss resist technique to create my background. I used Claudine Hellmuth acrylics and added my usual bit of stitching and mica, and words from a 1980s song by The Bangles (remember them?!)
Now, I must go and do a bit of housework so that later this afternon I can sit out and enjoy a little bit of the glorious sunshine we are having in England at the moment.


  1. Beautiful! And yes, I remember the song too.
    Ali xx

  2. Great card !! I always get creative block with those challenges. And boy, do I ever remember that song . . .
    Glad you've some sunshine there !! Enjoy.

  3. I think emboss resist is definitely your forte, I love the colours. I think you've sent the rain over here ... hopefully it's filling our tanks. The Bangles were my favourite in the 80s ...

  4. Love love love this one! (And now I have the song in my ears forever ...;-)))

  5. Oh, your card is so beautiful! I love the colour, and the stiching and the embellishments!

  6. I work slowly too. But I really came here to say this is another beautiful piece! The colors, the image, the details are all perfect!
