Something New

Hello everyone--hope that 2013 is being kind to you and that you are back into crafting after the Christmas and New Year break.

At Fun with ATCS this time the challenge is Something New

Everything on this ATC is new.

I painted the background with H20 paints--my daughter bought me 30 of the little pots and also some pots of the Cosmic Shimmer Irdescent Mica Pigment so I added some of that as well.

The beautiful stamp set was sent to me by Von with my birthday card--thank you Von. It is by Cart-Us. The  bird in a cage emblie and the little flowers where with other things in a beautiful Christmas box from Janet and the gold pen I bought for myself and used it to do some faux stitching and colouring in bits here and there. I did colour the edges of the flowers with an old Promarker lol.

Love Chrissie xx
