Summer Breeze ATC's

Hi everyone! Weather is a bit cool & dull here today. 
Have been up to see Keith's Mum this morning, she is in a care home as she has advanced Alzheimer's - always an upsetting visit. She is well cared for & the staff are so good to her. She doesn't know anyone now & cannot speak - well she does but nothing anyone can understand - it's so sad to see her like this. She used to react to photo's but doesn't seem to be able to do that now. I always have to sit in the car for a while before setting off back home. 
On a lighter note James's dog Poppy

is staying here for a few days while he is busy with work - she cheers me up with her waggy tail & kisses.
Just thought I'd share these ATC's I have done for a swap over on Blissfull ATC Swap.
The top left background was done by placing ink randomly onto a stencil, then spritzing with water, carefully placing the inked, spritzed stencil onto some clean copy paper then pressing some watercolour paper onto the inked side of the stencil. I love the effects I have been getting using this technique.
The background on the kites one was done by inking up an embossing folder then embossing some white card. I did another one, cut out the large kites & coloured using Inka Gold.
The beach background was another embossing folder, I then inked over the impression with DI & added highlights with Inka Gold. The collaged beach elements were freebies fron a magazine.
Hope you like them - hope my swap partner in USA likes them!
Thanks for stopping by.
