Asian Delights ATC's .....

The theme for the Born 2 Create March ATC swap is Asian Delights. Here is what I made:

It's a hybrid ATC .... I've used photoshop brushes to create the Bonsai tree and pot using three separate layers and colours. I made one blue, one green and one brown and then erased through to colour the different areas of the design. The writing is two separate brushes also. The one in the top right says "creativity" and the one in the bottom left says "friend" .... two things I feel are indicative of ATC's ...... being creative and making lasting friendships!! For the "traditional" part I have used the Summer Flower Soft to create the leaves and blossoms of the bonsai.
Now I just need to wait for the glue holding the Flower Soft to set completely and put the backs on them .... reading for posting tomorrow!

Inspiration ....

... for March Out of the Hat Challenge.

March challenge is:

- fabric
- 3 different size flowers
- chipboard

I made three types of fabric flowers using the cuttlebug, pinking shears and strips of denim. The scalloped star border and title were cut on the Cricut using Sure Cuts Alot. More details on the challenge blog.

And just a more detailed view of the fabric flowers.

TFL and I hope you will join in the fun!!
