May Challenge in the Dragons Lair and Day 143 of A Year of ATCs?

There's still time to join in this month's Challenge in the Dragons Lair which is

The collection below is  Vintage Lady Digital Pack from  Dragons Lair Designs:

Vintage Lady Digital Pack - Sunday Showcase April 24th - Click Image to Close

The 'lady' in this pack is currently the freebie image in the colouring competition in the

Dragons Lair Facebook Fan Group

I used it to make an ATC.

Why not join in both the Challenge and the colouring competition?

The ATC consists of a number of layers cut from scraps with dies from the Tonic ATC collection. The image was coloured with Zig real brush pens.

Finally I added a few gems...

This is my ATC for Day 143 of my 'Year of ATCs?'.

A Year of ATCs? - Day 142

Today I am up to Day 142 of my 'Year of ATCs?'

Here are two attempts at making an ATC using this Bloobel image.

The image is Bored at Work from Bloobel
 which is the image for the May Progressive Challenge.

I printed the image on a background paper - this first one was a freebie online but I found it was quite fuzzy. I outlined the fish with a fineliner.
I used a variety of markers to colour the image,
 trimmed it and added it to a piece of blue card. 
I added the thought bubble - just cutting it out and handwriting the sentiment.

In the second version, the image was printed on a DP from DDDoodles.
I again coloured it with a variety of markers, trimmed it and added it to a piece of card - this time yellow. The sentiment I printed on the computer.

Which do you prefer?

Happy Crafting!

A Year of ATCs? - Day 141

Today I am up to Day 141 of my 'Year of ATCs?'

This ATC uses another magazine freebie stamp - not used one for a while!

I printed the image on a Distress Oxide background and then cut out two sections using a die from one of the Tonic ATC Collection sets. I layered these up on some more of the background and then added a border cut using the same set.

Finally I added some gems.

Happy Crafting!
