Food related Card

 For stamp club the theme is food/kitchen/recipe. I choose food, specifically a pear. Colored a solid pear stamp with Distress inks and then stamped onto card stock. After cutting out the image, colored the edges with the gathered twigs pen.

Used the gathered twigs Distress Ink to stamp the Pear words onto cream card stock. Cut out thin strips of green gingham paper, added to the card along with the pear stamped image.

B&W with a little Red Card

For stamp club, we were to make Black and White colored cards with a little Red. I adhered a wide B&W grosgrain ribbon, added a large black punched flower with a small white punched flower, added a red "pearl" to the center of the flower and stampeded "you are special" with red in.

Aboriginal Style ATC

 The theme in the 9ATC Group is Aboriginal Style Art. I rubbed a blue Distress Ink (DTP) over manila card stock and then stamped a solid frog image with red Archival Ink.
 Used black Sharpies, 2 different white pens and a purple metallic gel pen to add doodles and dots.

 I continued adding more dots until the background was full.

Shrine ATC

 The theme for 9ATC Group is Shrine.
I embossed an arch image with detail gold embossing powder on a bronze metallic sheet of card stock and heat set.
 Made a background of blue mica dust splattered onto black card stock and cut out 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" backgrounds.
I found a madonna with child image on the internet and altered it a bit and added some details with a gold metallic pen. Layered the image onto the embossed arch image. Cut out the outline of the arch from other pre-embossed set and layered it over the other arch to give a slight depth. Layered all of this onto the mica splattered card stock. Punched out 3 candle images and added gold metallic ink to the flames. Added some paper flowers with gold from a pearl pen to the centers.
