Fun With ATC's

I love making atc's, but I haven't made any for quite a while. I had so much fun creating these. I am entering the entire collection into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is paint it up. All of the backgrounds are monoprints made on my Gelli Arts plate using Creative Inspirations Paints. I wasn't sure how the CI paints would work, but they worked beautifully. The shimmer really comes through even after I went over the cards with distress stains. I also added paint to the continents on the globe, the butterfly, and the metallic numerals. On the cat atc, the cat stamp is from Stampa Rosa and the sentiment is from Club Scrap. On the bird atc the words are diecut from Spellbinders dies. All of the rest of the diecuts, distress ink and stains, ChitChat word stickers, stamps, filmstrip tape, photo sticker, and metallic numbers are Tim Holtz products.

Here they are individually.


I am entering this card in the Take a Word challenge which is memories. I just love the little camera.
This card is being entered into the MFP Speedy Fox challenge which is getting back to nature.
This card is being entered into the Great Impressions challenge which is walk on the wild side - feature an animal.
