Week 18 - Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

Well it had to come sometime and that time has arrived - the letter Z. In actual fact it didn't prove difficult at all and I managed to use another uninked stamp from my collection. The stamps are from the Hero Arts Ribbons collection that I've had for years. I have used the zigzag stitches stamp lots of times but the others have been never seen the light of day - so it was good to liberate one of them. I bought the Tim Holtz ATC and Photo Corners die last week as it was reduced - I really could have done with it at the beginning of the year when this challenge started. When I cut my card for my atc and the corners fell onto my desk I realised I could add a bit of dimension to my atc by lining them up in a zigzag.

Fab ATC Maggie. So you really think the TH die is worth the money? Good to hear you used another uninked stamp and clever to make the zig zag out of the corner pieces.

A little late with my comment, but I think this is great. Z is a difficult letter, but you've made such a good job of this.
