ATCs

I love making ATCs as it's great fun working on a small scale and of course it's a good opportunity to use up scraps (and I have a whole heap of those!). Here are a couple I made recently using the Happy Wishes stamp from Hero Arts.

For this one I clear embossed the image on white card and then applied distress inks (broken china, shabby shutters, antique linen and faded jeans). The sky was spritzed with water. I white embossed the butterfly on vellum and added diamond stickles to the back of the wings and butterfly trail. Then for a bit more sparkle I added some more stickles here and there on the flowers.



For this ATC, I applied distress inks (spiced marmalade and worn lipstick) to white card and spritzed with water before stamping the image in black. I stamped the butterfly again, coloured it with distress inks and popped it. Then I added some touches of copper stickles here and there.
