january's atc's

well the uksn books have been piling up over christmas.
 actually, not too many as everyone is in the same position with lots to do.
anyway as i was having withdrawl symptoms from crafting .... due to flu, i thought i would make some atc's.
i am trying to use up lots of little bits and pieces. i was given an old recipes book that was falling apart, so i decided to make the atc's themed around that.

the first one is called 'cure for freckles.

the picture has nothing to do with freckles, except that i was always told they will go in time. the clock hands are a cuttlebug die cut and the stamp from craft stamper a while ago. the shooting star was 'up cyled ' from a christmas card

 this one  is called jellied eels
the stamp is from last months craft stamper. i think they used to be sold in cups, so it seemed appropriate

this one is called treacle pudding, the stamp is an image pac one i made. the big flower is a tim holtz tattered flower cut from some 'up cylcled' packaging and sprayed with cosmic shimmer and melted, then fixed with  brad.

this one  is called spiced pudding, the flower  topper is 'being used up' and the paper flower is from the paper cellar with distress inks on top. 

the last atc is called fish cakes. the patterned paper was from a tag off a top i brought in primark...... very pretty. the stamp is an oriental koi from image pac and distressed with inks. i highlighted the fish with glossy accents.
i think i am going to get a lot of use out of this old book.
well thats all folks.
