Funky Angel ATC

Good morning, how are you all? Ready for Christmas?  Eeeeek neither am I lol.  I don't seem to have one Christmas present yet so I have a busy few weeks.  Now mine are older (18 and 15) the presents are larger and of course larger means not so many, so I am not panicking yet.  Now for my Christmas makes, then yep I am panicking.  Not so much about how many I have to make as I could send normal ones to acquaintances, but more like there are too many I want to have a go at lol.  It's so nice now that I have finally got back in the craft room after my injections.  I was poorly for about a week as always and now it's great to be up and finally able to do what I want and not be restricted.  This make was an ATC swap I did just before my injections. Our challenge over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog is Christmas so I hope you will all join in :-).  I have done a small step by step, at the time I was filming for practise editing, what a laugh lol.  I'm hoping now to have it mastered between Christmas and new year.  I took photos as I knew that this wouldn't make YouTube lol.
I would like to enter the following challenges -
Our Creative Corner Challenge - Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas - I have done an ATC.
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Christmas/Holidays
Artistic Stamper Challenge - Anything Goes
Try it on a Tuesday Challenge - Christmas is coming
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge - Anything Goes with twist spots or dots

These were for a Stampotique Christmas swap and mine went
to Liz and Karen from UK and USA :-)
Don't forget, further down are some step by step photos plus a list
of products I used.  But first some pics :-).

And now for some step by step pics ......................

I started with 4 ATC's until I realised that for this swap I only needed 2 doh!!!

I went a bit mad with sprays lol.

The hats were the top of a PA christmas tree stamp and the wings
were made with fantasy film.

You can really see the shimmer on the hat, it's sort of purple glittery bits.

I used this stamp for the first time and it fell to pieces, I was gutted.
I bought it 2 years back with some other ones and they are fine.
Not sure what went wrong.

More sparkle for Christmas :-)

I scrunched up some kitchen roll and dabbed into the glue and then
dabbed on areas of the ATC.  It gave a fantastic effect for the foil.

I used lots of glittery sparkle :-)

The ATC was made like a top folding card and inside a season greeting.

And then I added it all together with some shading around the tree with my journal pencil.

Right that's it for me, I'm hoping to get lots of cards done this week so keep a look out :-).  Thank you so much for visiting.
Happy Art :-)

Wow, Kezzy - they're fabulous. The rich red and gold has a really traditional old world glamour to it, and I love all the layers and textures. Brilliant ATCs, and I'm sure your "swapees" will love them. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Our Creative Corner.
