I'm so excited, I signed up for my first ATC swap on Cococat's Cardmaking Message Board. I had never made one before, but admired many, and finally took the plunge to try one. The swap includes 12 people and each person is to do a card for a month of the year. I picked October because Alicia from PCA had sent me a Fall stamp set as an RAK, and I thought it would be perfect for this. For a first attempt, I'm quite happy with how they turned out.
This picture really isn't very good, night time again, but I first stamped my images, them sponged inks in shades of browns, green and a touch of red. then I randomly clear embossed smaller leaves over the card.
I just hope the recipiants like them!
Thanks for looking!
