I regularly participate in an online ATC swap with a few other like-minded ladies. We swap our little pieces of art every two months, and each time there is a different theme. This time, for April/May the theme was Travel, and nothing adds a special touch to an ATC like a dangling charm.

As you can see, each one is slightly different, but the each is made part of a set by the use of the same elements. I made this set of four using Inkssentials ATC’s Black Surfaces and the papers from the Kaisercrafts 75c Collection – the background from two sheets of mottled blue and cream paper from the 6.5” Paper Pad and for the stamped images, a sheet of Pound. The stamping is done using Stazon Jet Black ink and Sepia Archival ink, and all are tied up with a piece of Charcoal Black and White Bakers Twine.

In the centre making my photo look pretty is an Antique Bronze Compass Charm

For ”Discover Life” I used a Silver Clock Tower Charm and matching tiny photo of Big Ben,

for ”Gypsy” a tiny Silver Passport on the background of the Eiffel Tower,

for ”Magical Adventure” a Silver Eiffel Tower, again on top of a photo of itself, and

for ”Adventure” a Silver Camera over Tower Bridge.

Here’s hoping the ladies in the swap like them….I’m looking forward to seeing what they have done for me 🙂
