Beautiful! I love the colors you used and how they look spotlighted, or some other technical term I don't know? I haven't made any ATC's yet...were they difficult? I hope not, I'm wanting to participate in the ATC swap for WOYWW but I feel really unsure. Anyways, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. :)

Jingle said...

Daniella said...

WOW May! Your first ATC's? You are joking of course! Those couldn't be made any more awesome! You look like a seasoned professional! I make them often, and they don't look as good as your! You are awesome!!
Happy belated WOYWW!
xxDaniella #131

butlersabroad said...

They can't be your first ATC's surely???? There's absolutely no hope for me then, lol, better get practising!! The DI's make a great colouring medium. Take an old tile, cd case, dvd case etc and push the ink block on to it. Use a waterbrush or a regular painting brush to pick up the colour. Let me know how you get on.

Hugs
Brenda

Barb King said...

Beautiful ATC's, May, I would feel lucky to get one of those!
