Week 4 - Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

Firstly, thank you to everyone who left comments on my blog in Week 3 of the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge. They are very much appreciated. I'm sorry that I haven't been able to leave any comments on your blogs but life is getting in the way at the moment. I was amazed to see my "eye" on the Craft Barn Wall of Fame! Thank you Izzy.
   
So, now it's week 4 of the challenge. To see the details click on the challenge logo over on the right.

This week's letter is H. I didn't have to run my figure far down the list of words in that section of the dictionary before I came to the word haberdasher. I knew I need look no further as I had yet more uninked stamps that would fit the bill. Surely I'm not going to keep this going through the next twenty two challenge weeks? I knew I had a lot of unused stamps but I don't believe it's quite so many as it seems. Time will tell!

I'm reasonably happy with this atc - just wish I'd stamped the images with brown ink and also added a little more colour.

Love your ATC. I like the black ink & the pink button draws my eye to the pink underneath the crackled layer.

I love the pink button, and the way it ties in the stamped images. :) x
