Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

ATCs Coastal Views Set

Good grief, I had completely forgotten about this set of ATC's, I made them ages ago.  Better late than never I guess.

You may recall that I did this once before when I used some of Teri Sherman's views of Scotland, which I called my Scenic Set. Once again, I have used some of favourite Delicious Doodles images, reducing the digi stamp to ATC size and coloured them with my polychromos pencils.  I made the images into two sets, I have called this set the coastal ones, and I still have the vintage set to share another day.

It wasn't that easy to get the size right because all of the images as different sizes and then, of course, it is a bit hit and miss lining them up on the Sizzix Bigz die to cut the ATC shape, but I eventually got there.

Virtually all of these images are available from Esty, this one is called 'In the Harbour'.

I have searched and searched but this one of a rotting boat seems to have been deleted from the web site and I cannot remember what it was called, sorry!

Next we have 'Sunset at Sea'.

This one gave me the opportunity to be very colourful, it is called 'Beach Huts'.

And finally we have 'Coming Home'.

The little butterflies are an old Stampin' Up die.

Thank you for dropping by today, I will be back in a few days with the other set of ATCs.

    1. Thank you Carol. I have had all of my Delicious Doodle scienic images a very long time, I love them and wish Teri would do more. I am sure the untitled one is hers but, if you do not have it, I guess it was removed from the website before you bought your images. Turning them into ATCs was great fun and I keep meaning to do it to more of my digi stamps.

  2. Beautiful.

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely comment. Please stop by again.


  3. A fabulous set which your colouring has brought to life. That sunset is particularly stunning but of course the beach huts are my favourites xx

  4. Thank you Mrs Beez, these are a great set of sketches, making it so easy to colour them. I love them all but I think my favourite is still the beach huts too.
