ATC Fun

I haven't made ATCs for a while. I do love them - making miniature works of art is great fun and a great way to try out new ideas and techniques.
 
I've been inspired to get back to ATCing by the discovery of the Fun With ATCs blog. They're having a celebration blog hop and inviting people to make ATCs with the theme "celebration".
 
So here's my contribution:
 
 
 
I think this is a sweet quote and my ATC is kind of celebrating love/friendship. :)
 
I used Dylusions ink sprays and water spritzed through a stencil for the background and stamped a text stamp through a stencil using pink ink. I then stamped the solid blossom stamp twice in orange ink and once in pink ink and then stamped the outline blossom stamp over the pink image using sepia ink. To finish I stamped the sentiment in black ink and inked the edges with black ink. The script stamp was a Kaisercraft one and all the other stamps were Stampin' Up!
