Spring ATC's or find the Tooth Bunny

As you can see, I'm here and not there, but I will be there at the weekend, dog sitting that is, and not here... Meanwhile... here's three ATC's I did last week for the Cardmaking Download forum's monthly swap. I started them in good time and then, as always..forgot! Luckily Ali reminded me and they got sent off in time. Just hope they're okay. I do worry that when people get them the other end they think..'what in Henry is this?? '(usually because I've misread the theme!)I mean... Spring...What first comes to your mind??
First I thought of a spring...from an old clock and then (horror) very old false teeth (as worn by George Washington click here ) that had springs clipped to the sides, to help them to open and close...then, thank goodness,> I thought of Tigger...with his springy tail...then daffodils and then bunnies!! And that's where my very simple mind stopped.
A little while ago I won some lovely Birthday candy from Dragonlady also called Ali, but not the same Ali. She sent me some lovely little clear stamps, featuring Christmas Fairies and words as well as, tiny heart flowers, mushrooms, dragonflies and bunnies!!
So...I drew the back ground myself using my Promaker pens and then stamped the bunnies, flowers, dragonflies and the mushrooms over the top. This way you still get the whiskers and stems you see. Stamp them again on a scrap of card, colour, cut out and attach with 3D foam pads (cut in half) I hope whoever gets them, likes them...I think they're a little better than they could've been!
Right...off to do another couple of Spring ATC's for the Quirky Craft Forum. Now, where's granddad's old teeth??

  16. Ooh you are clever, those backgrounds are wonderful ;) Great ATCs. I think you should have gone with the George Washington teeth LOL I've never seen those before! I'm like that I sometimes start something then get carried away doing it and forget what the theme was :-\
