ATC’s .. Lindy’s, Birds and Postage Stamps

I’ve had a great day of crafting up in the workshop today ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been up there most of the day, only coming back into the house to hang out the laundry, put another load in and feed the troops ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sprays featured a lot today, I custom dyed hydrangea flowers and seam binding to match and did about 8 different colour combinations giving me loads of ideas for new cards! ย In fact I made a card for my friends sister who recently went through surgery, but I forgot to take a picture of it.. but those who kept me company on Ustream seen it I used a bird stamp from Crafty Individuals ๐Ÿ™‚

Then I took some watercolour paper and sprayed loads of different backgrounds because in theory I wanted to make a Tie Dyed mini album… I will still make it but not with the papers and mini I covered today.. its more for a boy/space/harry potter/sciFi type mini, I’ll take pictures tomorrow and show you what I mean ๐Ÿ˜‰

So what to do with all the offcuts of sprayed paper left over from the mini? ย I kept them and made some ATC’s ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here they are… a trio of Bird / Lindy Background / Old Postage Stamps / Rubber stamp postmarks..
