Vera Lane Studio: Bloom ATCs


Happy Monday!

Please let me welcome Fiona Whitehead, my new follower.  I am always delighted when someone takes time to look at my blog posts :) 

Today we have fewer Covid restrictions in the England - that is something to be happy about. 

  Non-essential retail and services are opening - hurrah for the hairdressers and gyms! We also have outdoor hospitality opening and now two people can visit family or friends in care. Overnight stays away from home are allowed in England, as long as you keep in your bubbles, but international travel is still not allowed. So, there's plenty to smile about today! Let's hope people act with caution and we don't end up back in lockdown.


As it is Monday, it is my DT day for Vera Lane Studio.

I have a trio of ATCs to share. This month we are having an ATC swap and the theme is 'Bloom'. Here is what I made:

I chose two older digi sets called Wildflower and Daffodil, as well as last week's new digi set release, Jardin.

I made my backgrounds by stamping green Distress Oxide inks with Reverse Diamonds. I added some Scripted Diamonds along the edges and some #4 Encrypt washi Tape. I used #6 Crafty washi tape to ground my girls and added some florist moss for some texture. (Stamps and washi tapes are from AALL & Create)

Here are the ATCs in close up:

Firstly, this is Jardin. She is teamed with flowers from the 'Thoughts of You' digi set (available on request).

Next is Wildflower - I love this quirky flower girl. I teamed her with flowers from 'Sunny'.

And lastly, this is Daffodil. She comes with a meadow full of daffodils which I used in the background.

All of the sweet sentiments are from the Back to Back Collage set (available on request).

That's all for now.
I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
