If you read my blog you know I am a sucker for ATC's! I love to make them and swapping them is a lot of fun! : ) I recently joined an ATC swap in honor of my oldest son and his sweetie! The theme of the swap is Tasteful Nudes! I just couldn't resist! There is a cute story that explains my madness! You see...my son's sweetie is a cross country runner and before she left for college she talked my kid into running in a 5K with her! The catch though was that it was a naked run! Yup! naked as the day they were born! LOL Now I couldn't possibly imagine running in a 5K, let alone running it in the buff! They are young though and both a little bit goofy and in great shape so why not?! My immediate reaction was to veto the whole deal-y-o, but then I decided life was too short and so I told them to go for it! She came in First Place!!! My son said it turned out to be a great experience! They ran it with 400 other naked runners and will remember their experince for a long time to come! I was pretty proud! : )
Anyhow, this swap screamed out to me and this is what I came up with! I think they came out pretty! I stamped the focal image and then used masking to stamp the background around her. I heat embossed her wings and added some ribbon, a flower and some bling as my required embellishment. They came together very quickly and I cannot wait to get them in the mail and get some of the other great swaps in return!
Have a great day! : )
