Altered ATC


The Jan/feb challenge in New Inspirations was to make a matchbox shrine from an old atc so I found an old one I had, took it apart and made this matchbox shrine, the front is the old atc which had been embellished with the friendly plastic sun, I printed off the picture, embossed an old tomato puree tube for the roof,reapplied the sun and added some shells to the base and there you have it - a 'Shrine to the Sun'

Thankyou for your kind words and good wishes Maureen. If you email your address to me I will certainly send you one of my ATCs. You'll get me at hpmartin@uwclub.net and I would love one of yours. Best wishes, Heather.
