Lost In Translation

The challenge this fortnight over at Stampotique is to make an ATC. It can take me as long, and cause as much mess to make one of these as it could to decorate a small housing estate. I am not quick, and I'm not tidy!! Anyway... I started by making the background. The usual ink, paint, stencils, and the Stampotique French Text stamp. My Gentleman Fox has been coloured with Prisma pencils. Now to me, and everyone in Britain there is only one fox. Drum roll please for Mr Basil Brush - Boom Boom!! 


Told you some things get lost in translation lol. 
My second ATC features the wonderful Old Timey Frog. What is not to love about this stamp! He's been painted in Dylusion inks and decoupaged. As I don't have a printer at the moment the words have had to be handwritten. How I wish I was one of those people who could write, or draw, or even doodle, but never mind - I have rubber!!
Thanks very much for looking x

  3. I like hand writing on an atc, makes them all the more individual. I love them both, but nice to go down memory like with good old Basil lol. Hugs lin

  5. Basil Brush! Now you have taken me back! Love your ATCs - what fun! That frog reminds me of Hector's house!
    To be honest I much prefer the teeth rotting sugary cough candy to cherry lips too! Found some in an old fashioned sweet shop in Southwold last year!
