Fishes 14/02/14 and new ATC

Here is an update on my fish tank cross stitch. Again it is white that has been added so not easy to see the progress, but it is there. It is now on 33 and a half hours.

The ATC was made using some free papers I got with a crafting magazine as the card backing. I then added a sheer lace ribbon to the centre of the card. I stamped 'With Love' using a Tatty Teddy rubber stamp and bordered it with Heart swirls stamp (which I got from my Grandma). I used versa mark ink for the stamps and then heat embossed the using 'Heat-it up' Black Sparkle embossing powder. I then attached this stamped panel to the bottom of the card. Again using a versa mark ink pad, but this time a red embossing powder I triple embossed a square patch and then stamped a heart into the embossing powder whilst it was still hot. It is a little difficult to see in the picture but you can just make it out. I then added a ribbon 'Papermania' bow to the top of the card and two star brads down the side.

I am entering the ATC for the following challenges:
MIM - Love is in the Air
Craft Room - Ribbon and Lace
Addicted To Stamps - Hearts
OneCrazyStamper - Anything Goes
Allsorts - Use Brads
crafting by designs - Anything for Love
