Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge "Shine On"


This week over on the Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge Blog the theme is "Shine On". Now this had me stumped, every idea I had just didn't feel right....I thought sunshine, knight in shining armour (but the lovely Fran beat me to that idea), nothing was right. So after faffing for what seemed like a lifetime I saw some shiny paper in Georgia's crafting stash....so I pinched it (shhhh don't tell her). So for my two ATC's I covered a piece of card 1/8th of an inch smaller than the ATC size with the shiny paper and using Stazon and the Gorjuss Girls from Sugar Nellie I created two incredibly simple ATC's. What you cannot see in the pictures is that the silver paper has almost a rainbow colour that is like oil mixing with water whenever the sunshine hits it in the right angle. I did lay some other embellies on them, but they didn't look right and detracted of the pretty simplicity of the image stamped onto the shiny background.
So why don't you come and join us and show us your ideas with the "Shiny" theme. Annie & Lynn are taking a blogging rest at the moment, so Andrea and I are looking after the blog, so come over and support us and take part.
