Best of British

I went to see the girls on Thursday at Scrap Club (@ITC) after a difficult day planning a funeral and generally being depressed, for a bit of a natter and nose on what everyone else was doing.
Having got there, I got itchy and had to have something to play with, so Nina gave me some of the new 'Past Times' ATC card, specially designed for Its Crafting Time.
I got really inspired, and borrowed glue and scissors and ink from everyone around me (aren't crafters lovely people!)
These 4 ATC's are made entirely from the Past Times papers with a little stamping using Artemio 'Tea Time' stamps.
It was so nice to work with stuff so obviously produced for the British market and having such a limited supply of craft stuff made me really think about what to do.
Other than the papers and the stamping, the only other added interest is that I have heat embossed some of the fragments several times.
This photo gives a much better shot of the base image of a smiling young serviceman. I have simply stamped over it with clear ink and then embossed it several times until I could get it to crack.

The coloured inks are Memento bahamas blue and lady bug.

All available from Its Crafting Time
(The 'Past Times' papers are exclusive to them)

(for the purposes of full disclosure, I am honoured to be on the ITC design team!)
