Susi from "Fun with ATC's" blog left a comment on my blog today and became a follower so of course I had to go over to have a look, it appears to be a German blog! They run a challenge for ATC's so I decided to take up the challenge which is using purple and brown, the colours of their blog. I used a Versacolor chalk ink "Pretty Petunia" all over the card stock, stamped various clocks in Versafine Sepia, the stamps are Crafty Individuals. The title at the top is "Time Flies". I fixed with tiny brown brads 2 of Tims Idea-ology clock parts then covered another piece of card stock in the same purple colour and stamped the Paper Artsy parrot, he has a name but I can't remember what it is, in Sepia cut him our and mounted him on the atc using mini mounting pads, I gave him a nice brown eye using my Viva Pearl Pen. The two colours I would not have thought about using them together but I really like them.


  1. Wow Pat you have been busy!! Love the Atc with the parott and your previous post with the lovely wings but my fav is the stampotigue its perfect Good luck with all these challenges xx

  3. I think the birds name is Archie! Know what you mean about the colours - you normally wouldn't think of putting them together but it works! Great job.
