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.
