K is for KING!
If you read the general chat on the Tanda forum, you will realise that I had major panics trying to get this Atc done!! I'm now totally embarassed as the missing stamps were in my handbag all along....I think it was Karma that they were out of stock in the Range (where I bought them originally) and the Treasury (rediscovered after their fire)...coz the next place I went...tescos...the box mysteriously appeared on top of everything else in my handbag...all the little alphabet stamps were hiding at the bottom of my bag! They'd only been there for 2 weeks and I hadn't noticed!
So what of the atc...I think I am going back to the origins of atc's (correct me if I'm wrong!)...I'm sure that someone told me that they started off as altered playing cards..I quickly drew out a stamp for the king playing card...and Andrew (Tanda) made a custom stamp for me...the club was in a dump bin thingy at the Range ages ago...it was one of those jellyish stamps that don't hold the ink very well so I ended up colouring it in a bit. The image has been stamped in versamark and heat embossed with gold ep. I then painted it with H2O's...the K is also coloured with H2O's, triple embossed and edged with Krylon.
