This week I haven't had much time for any fun things due to the holiday and also, helping my daughter move.  However, I did make a couple of ATC's.  The first one is for the monthly Winner Takes All lottery in the Paper Traders Yahoo Group:

The background is from a Gelli plate print.  I have a lot of old postage stamps and loved this one with the umbrella on it.  I used an EK Success punch along the top to mimic rain.   A rubber stamp with tiny lines was also used for rain and I used a glitter pen to add highlights here and there along those lines.  A portion of a Sizzix flourish die cut from another Gelli print added  a border at the bottom.  The words were computer generated and colored with distress ink.  I like cutting the ATC a bit smaller and mounting it on black cardstock cut to the exact size; this gives it a nice frame. One little black opal gem accents the top of the umbrella.

This next one will be offered as a trade:

The image is one from a Somerset Studio collage sheet.  Rubber stamps and distress inks were used for the background.  The bird is also a rubber stamp.  The circles are plain white reinforcement labels colored with distress ink. The word was cut from an old book. A black Sharpie was used for the dots all around the edges.

Loved making these - am hoping to make some pages for a deco book swap this coming week.

Nice ATCs-love the top one with the punched out holes-that looks like a great punch to have- who makes it? I want to get an ATC done for the June lotto, along with a few more for trade. So glad to see you there at PT too!
