So I haven't really done many swaps, but lately I have been participating in the swaps at The Coconut ScrapShop. (You can find their swaps here.) This first one is for a tag swap with a "Gratitude" theme. Here is what I made:
Tags (both paper tag and metal rimmed tag) and Magic Mesh from Stampin' Up!, Stickers from Basic Grey, Journaling Spots from Heidi Swapp, Chipboard Letters from K & Company, and paint from Making Memories (used paint on bubble wrap on the metal rimmed tags, color: Monarch).
And then, the second swap I just finished was the Winter Wonderland ATC swap. I think there are still a couple openings in this swap. But this one is my favorite...I really like how it turned out and I had a lot of fun trying all sorts of techniques with it. Here's what it looks like:
I started off with some Shimmery White cardstock and randomly sprayed Glimmer Mist on it. Then I stamped and embossed the snowflakes. The branch is actually embossed with clear over a black pigment ink pad...simply because I liked the way it looked. I then added red flocking to the berries on the branch. I added patterned paper on top of the chipboard frame and sanded the edges. The owl is stamped, embossed, colored and then cut out. And then of course I added 3D paint because apparently that is my thing. :)
And just like the other swap...I made 10, all slightly different but similar to this one.
Cardstock, Chipboard, and Embossing Powders--Stampin' Up!, Glimmer Mist--Tattered Angels, Stamps--Hero Arts, Patterned Paper--Imaginisce, Flocking--Doodlebug, and 3D Paint--Scribbles.
