Soot?






Yesterday I managed to finally finish a few UFOs...My ATCs for the DRD "Filmstrips" swap, a couple of TY ATCs, as well as a couple of birthday cards, one of which I`ll be entering for this month`s Soot challenge over at Inkurable Stampers. If you happen to be taking part in the DRD swap, look away now...or continue reading, the photos are not that great anyway LOL. I`ve also remembered to share one of the sympathy cards I had to make last week, I don`t know about the rest of you, but I always find it difficult to make sympathy cards, I guess it must be because they are for a sad occasion... Anyhow, the first card is the one for Inkurable Stampers, then there`s dad`s birthday card, followed by the sympathy card. I also made 3 Thank you ATCs, 2 of them using the Robot filmstrip, & one which I`ll have to upload to the next post (sorry about that), & the last 2 ATCs are the ones which left this morning for their trip to the DRD swap...the one on the left-hand side has a crumpled & inked b`ground, with some machine sewing (yes, I`ve kept my machine out & ready to play LOL)
The one on the right-hand side has been stamped & clear-embossed, & I`ve used some bleach to give the b`ground a mottled effect. It`s hard to tell from the photo, but I`ve used the Sunflower GM (thanks Marie) to lightly spray the filmstrip, & I think it looks great. I`m very pleased with how they turned out. Now I can concentrate on Marie`s "Romance" black, white & red ATC swap for Artilicious...Stay tuned :)
I`d just like to add a very quick thanks to those of you who have stopped by my blog & left comments, & also to those of you who`ve emailed me about the loss of my little Cuddles, it has been very hard, & I thank you all for caring...

Hola Vicky, se ve que has estado atareada eh? preciosos todos tus trabajos. No te pierdes un swap ¿de dónde sacas el tiempo?
Espero que estéis ya más animados, después de la pena de perder a vuestra mascota.
Un abrazo desde el otro lado del mundo, Cuchy
