How often do you try new things with your greeting cards? This past weekend, I decided to play with ATC's -- Artist Trading Cards. Standard size for these is 2½ X 3½ inches. Here is what I created:
The Peacock rubber stamp (Stampability) is a newer item. He is colored with Copics and glitter pens. ATC cardstock embossed Courtship (couture creations), edged with Vintage Photo and brushed with Peacock Feathers distressed ink (tim holtz).
This little Bird is from Backyard Basics set (stampin' up) and colored with Copics. Cardstock is embossed with Organic Flouirsh (cuttlebug), edged with Dried Marigold, and brushed with Broken China distress ink (tim holtz). Paper Leaf (prima) to complete.
The Bee is also from the Backyard Basics set (stampin' up) and colored with Copics and glitter ink. He is 3-D with 2 layers. Cardstock embossed Organic Flourish (cuttlebug), edged with Vintage Photo, and brushed with Mowed Lawn distress ink (tim holtz).
Lastly, this cute Pansies set (sweet garland) is colored with Copics, and hand cut out. Cardstock is embossed Swirls (stampin' up) and edged with Pickled Raspberry distressed ink (tim holtz). 1 Purple Rhinestone (kaiser scrapbook) completes this ATC.
The main idea I came away from working on these ATC's is: Keep it Simple!
