EWV - ATC Wendy style

The new challenge at the yahoo group EWV is to create an ATC 'Wendy' style - based on the one in Wendy's book III page 20.

I used the background stamp from 'accents for art' which I hadn't inked until tonight - but I am liking it a lot!! I used distress inks in wild honey and what I thought was rusty hinge but turned out to be pumice stone cos I'd got the lids mixed up.... but I like it!!   The flash doesn't do it justice, sadly.

 The flowers are from 'she created art' and I love them. I coloured the grungepaper with rusty hinge (really, this time!) and the butterfly is wild honey, spritzed with perfect pearl spray for some shimmer, and I used some old pearls for the body.

If you love Wendy's style, why don't you check out the yahoo group and join us? it's lots of fun.

Very pretty Helen and I like the sentiment too! Is this practice for the WOYWW one?

Lovely! I use Pumice Stone a lot because it's such a neutral color it really blends others out when you need that option.

Helen, those are my favorite flowers and I love the way you've colored them. Thanks for the giggle over the ink pad lids... I've had that happen too and have never heard another soul admit it!

Love your Wendy style ATC Helen. I must confess I have none of her stamps but when I see this I know I want some. Have taken note of which plate you have - might just have to save up for it LOL.
Hugs, Neet xx
