"Writing" at FunwithATCs

I am so happy to be able to welcome you to this fortnight's brand new FunwithATCs challenge - 


If it is handwriting or if you use script stamps (or have any other inspired ideas upon the theme) - it's completely up to you...as long as you create an ATC (Artist Trading Card) of the size 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 ''!

I love writing, calligraphy, writing poems and short stories (there's even a once started fantasy novel stored in one of my (virtual) drawers, waiting to be finished some day). I love the look of handwriting. I love that writing is a process of creating images quite similar to painting, stamping or any other art.

So you should not be surprised that I chose a quote by C.S.Lewis for my ATC, that expresses my feelings towards "writing" quite well.

I combined some script (and flourish) stamping (along with heat embossing), handwriting, drawing and - of course - ink blending, use of metal and distressing.

I hope to see your writing/written creations over at the FunwithATCs challenge site soon! And you should have a look at my team mates' awesome creations too!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful crafty week!
