TMTA - Angel

(not for trading)
This week's challenge at Think Monday Think ATC is to make an ATC with angels. Today I borrowed this angel stamp from a good friend of mine, Jacqueline. After a very busy workshop with Leandra of PaperArtsy, the angel inspired me to this beautiful piece of art.

Deze week bij Think Monday Think ATC maken we een atc met een engel. Ik heb deze stempel vandaag mogen lenen van een goede vriendin van mij, Jacqueline. Na een volle workshop van Leandra van PaperArtsy heeft deze engel mij geinspireerd om dit kunstwerkje te maken.

TMTA - Coffee

My favourite drink, coffee, should be the subject of our ATCs for Think Monday - Think ATC. That is not a problem, I have gathered some coffee stamps. With enough cafeine I could rule the world, but never bother me before my first cup!

Mijn favoriete drank, koffie, is het onderwerp van de ATCs deze week bij Think Monday - Think ATC. Geen probleem, ik heb al aardig wat koffie-stempels verzameld. With enough cafeine I could rule the world, maar laat me met rust zolang ik mijn eerste kop koffie nog niet heb gehad.

TMTA - Handwriting

Het thema van Think Monday - Think ATC van deze week is Handschrift. Dit thema gaf me mooi de gelegenheid een aantal stempels te gebruiken die ik op de Stempel-Mekka gekocht heb. De stempel 'Travel' had ik al en is handgeschreven.

This week's theme of Think Monday - Think ATC is hadwriting. This theme offered me the opportunity to use some stamps I bought at the Stempel-Mekka last weekend. The Travel stamp is handwritten.

TMTA - Architecture

Deze week weer tijd om mee te doen met Think Monday - Think ATC. Het thema is architectuur. Deze stempel leek me hiervoor erg geschikt. De achtergrond is gemaakt met Derwent potloden.

TMTA - Dog days

Hondsdagen zijn de dagen tussen 19 juli en 18 augustus, de warmste periode van het jaar. De hondsdagen staan deze week centraal bij Think Monday - Think ATC. Dus heb ik een ATC gemaakt met veel zonnen en juli en augustus helemaal blauw.

Dog days refer to the hottest days of summer, between mid-July to mid-August. Dog days are the theme of Think Monday - Think ATC. So I created an ATC with many suns and july and august in blue.

TMTA - Turquoise

Toevallig vorige week ook al een atc met turquoise gemaakt. De achtergrond van deze atc is helemaal turquoise. De stempels van Dali (Cherry Pie Art Stamps) heb ik pas dit weekend gekocht. Deze opdracht van Think Monday Think ATC is een mooie gelegenheid om ze direct te kunnen gebruiken.

I already used turquoise in last week's atc. The background of this atc is totally turquoise. I bought the Dali stamps (Cherry Pie Art Stamps) this weekend. This theme of Think Monday Think ATC gives a great opportunity to use them immediately.

TMTA - Open your eyes

Think Monday - Think ATC asked us to open our eyes this week. My interpretation is an ATC in Dutch. The sentiment reads: eyes open keep discovering. In other words, never stop looking at and wondering about the world around us.

TMTA: Stone

Earlier this year, we went to an exhibition of the famous Terra Cotta Army. It was very impressive. So, when TMTA asked to make something with stone this week, I immediately knew which stamp to use.

Theme Thursday - Hats

I was looking for more challenges, and came across Theme Thursday. This week's theme was Hats, and I immediately knew what the ATC would look like. This is the result. The background is made with Metallic Silver Adirondack Dabber, over which I used Oregano and Butterscotch alcohol inks. The stamps and German Scrap are from PaperArtsy. The butterfly was found in one of the embellishment drawers.

TMTA - Hands

This week's theme on Think Monday - Think ATC was a real challenge! The theme was to show creations and ideas on hands. It appeared that I only have two stamps with hands, the pointing hand is a rub-on. So I definitively need more hands!
