New altered bottle caps and ATC's

I've recently made some new altered bottle caps:


So the left one in the left picture has one of my friends her name on it. The letters are stamped and heat embossed. Than I also added 3 gemstones to it. 

The right one in the left picture as a background made out of paper from an old book. Then I've put an old English postage stamp in it and embellished it with gemstones. 

The top bottle caps are meant to clip onto the earrings (See former post). The background paper is blue with white dots and the flowers were embossed onto it. Finally I've put a pearl in the center of each flower.

So, these were my initial/ basic attempts to make altered bottle caps. While making them I came up with some new and better ideas! I already got my supplies for the new attempts and will tell you all about it when I show you the results in one of my latter posts.

So, for ATCs; since the second Postage Stamps ATC swap on swap-bot has started I made A third Postage Stamp ATC swap, this time on China. You can see all the swaps on the swap webpage:

I've now also added a feedback form on the hompage + A poll where you can tell me which country you would like to see next!

So, this is my Canada Postage Stamp ATC:

I also had to make an ATC for the orange Owl ATC swap on swap-bot:

Finally, I also wanted to add that I've updated the homepage for the 'My Pet ATC swap' Which I have hosted on Swap-bot. The nice thing is that a lot of people have sent me a picture of their ATC's so I could make a collage of them on the homepage. I will definitely organize this swap again! It was great fun!

Thats it for now :)  Happy crafting and happy swapping!
