ARTIST TRADING CARDS (ATCs)


Let me say first - these are my first ATCs - and I'm not sure if there are any rules regarding ATCs - so I am shooting from the hip on this one.  For a better view - just click on the photo.

I used Prima's Garden Fable paper - which I love - so many possibilities with the paper.  I actually used the 4x6 and 3x5 journaling cards from this series for the ATCs.  The first one I used Inka Gold and a stencil in the background (these ATCs happen to be black on both sides).  I fussy cut out some of the little houses from the paper and I punched a little border and added some Ranger Liquid Pearls.  The second one I used a piece of the Garden Fable paper for the background and fussy cut one of the larger houses and added lace, flowers and liquid pearls - and the same for the last one.

Thanks for taking a peek.



LINDY'S STAMP GANG JULY 2015 CHALLENGE


I think it's been a week or two since I've posted anything - life steps in and makes up put down our art supplies and handle more important matters.  I've tried locking my office/craft room door - but life always gets in! LOL!

I still have not mastered how to get the correct size photo on my blog - I need to put some serious time into working with those parameters.  But, you can click on the picture and enlarge it for a better view.
