I have been blogging about 10 1/2 months (Blogiversary is soon!) now, and I have never let a week go by without posting. I have a two good reasons though. As you can see, I've changed up the blog some. That html language stuff and editing my pictures to fit the blog can be hard business, but I hope you like the changes. I've also been busy closing out last year for our taxes...yuck! I am super late getting to that game, but can you blame me?!?
However, I am waaayyy early in finishing these ATC's for the All Things Tim Yahoo Group Monthly ATC Swap of "Fun Halloween or Fall". They are not due until September 20th, but since they qualified for a few challenges I figured now is the best time.
Linda at Studio L3 has chosen "Kraft Resist" as the technique for Compendium of Curiosities II Challenge, that we are to do this week from Tim's book. Hels at Ink On My Fingers has chosen "Green" as the challenge for Sunday Stamper. And, The Blogger's Challenge is "Black, White, & A Splash Of Color".
|After I finished doing Tim's technique on this music notes Kraft Resist, I embossed the skeleton. I think he is dancing...dancing to the Monster Mash.|
|I stamped the 31 in Mowed Lawn Distress Ink onto Inkssentials Specialty Stamping Paper. Then I stamped Tim's sentiment in Jet Black Archival on top of the 31. I cut it out and inked the edges in Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I love this sentiment.|
|I distressed the edges of the ATC and inked them in Dusty Concord. I adhered it to a black piece of cardstock that I doodled on with a white pen. I attached the sentiment to finish it off.|

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
