Crayon resist atc

Almost finished the crayon resist ATC for the darkroom door swap.  I actually liked doing a technique themed swap this time around.

 If you go to rachel's blog    http://www.rachelgreig.typepad.com/darkroomdoor/ you can find details of her swaps and cards using her stamps.  The more I look at the pic the more I think I should add some beading to the ribbon???  Ummmm I think I have to add some beading, the ribbon looks very tacked on the end.  Why is it tacked on?  Because the stamp is not the right size for an atc but, I didn't think to measure before i stuck it down!!

Also a card made using the sample atc.  I generally make a sample so that I can play around before I decide what to do.  If it turns out half decent then it becomes a card otherwise straight in the bin.  Sometimes kitty has a good chew before it lands  in the bin so nothing is ever wasted.

    Did you use the crayon resist technique on the flower itself?
    Beautiful!

  4. Hi Sandra, I love the ATCs. If you think they need some more embellishing how about throwing some microbeads on the ribbon? That would be quite subtle but would work nicely, I think.
