ATC – life is a fairy tale

Published by at 8:50 am under ATC


Since I’m going to be working on some ATCs this week, I thought I’d share another one I did for an ATC a while ago. For this one, I really wanted an elegant look. I was toying with just black and white until I decided to use these stamps. Then I decided to add a subtle hint of color by coloring only the flowers. Unfortunately, I don’t know who these stamps are by. Lisa was kind enough to give them to me and I didn’t think to ask who made them.

ATC base is Basic Black. Top layer is Shimmer White. I stamped the row of flowers about 1/3 of the way up. I knew I wanted to wrap some ribbon around the middle, so this helped me with the image placement. I then used my Bashful Blue marker to color in the flowers. The ticket corner punch was used on the layer and the ribbon was tied around the white layer before adhering it to the Basic Black ATC base.

For the focal image, I stamped the circle frame then added the sentiment inside it on Shimmery White cardstock. I then used my Coluzzle to cut around the image, taking care to stop where the flowers started. I then used my scissors to cut around the flowers. Flowers were colored in with Bashful Blue and then the image was adhered to the scalloped circle.

For the finishing touches, I added the white dots to the scallops with my white gel pen. The focal image was adhered to the ATC with dimensionals, and Stickles were used on the focal image flowers.

I just love to do ATCs! They are fun, quick to do and I love signing up for ATC swaps! Did you know that you can get 10 ATCs from one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock? Check out the picture below to see how to do this.

If you’d like to try out an ATC swap, check out my friend Andee’s blog. She’s hosting an A Muse ATC swap! It’s a small round of 10, sign up quickly before all the spots are gone!
