Bloggers Challenge



This weeks challenge is to use magazines or photos in your card. The Iris ATC is mounted on a piece of magazine from the October Technique Junkie newsletter, Scrunchie Technique. The ATC is for an oriental swap for the letter "I", Iris. The stamp was colored with markers and I used the "ol' huff & puff" technique!
The "Just Fishin'" card started out as a photo reproduction in a magazine. I added a light touch of color with chalks.

Great little ATC's. I don't know what the "scruchie" technique is but it looks pretty cool. I really like the photo though of the little boys fishing. Reminds me of my dad who loved to fish and it's very "nostalgic."
