New ATC round on the Charmed forum and the theme this time was "textured background". Here are my three swaps:

I made them all different but the format is the same: Claudia Helmut Canvas (tried to link and realised that it's not on site, will rectify that as soon as) painted with a variety of Perfect Pearls - Green Paint Dabber painted torn Prima Paintables paper - inked swirls (using a Crafter's Workshop template) - then embellishments and glamour dust. Embellishments used are from K&Co Ephemera packs: Life's Journey and Cut 'n Paste plus a few paper flowers, a Tim Holtz ticket and some Prima pearls and crystals. All edges are inked with brown distress ink.

Quite hard to let them go once you've created them, but them's de rules... ;-)

Thanks for visiting the Charmed corner of the Web....x
