Sweet Dreamers Blog Group Challenge # 3- grid
I am busy making ATC's for a Flourishes swap- and I decided to just make more so I can send some to Juliet A for the Technique Junkies ATC Technique Swap. (I made 18 of these in all). I join the TJ swap to get samples of techniques by others- and it is a nice way to see techniques I may or may not have tried. Deb Lovett put it nicely- the ATC cards are like having a little autograph book that other stampers sign- with their creativity (OK, not an exact quote.....).
Not an easy BG to photograph- more vibrant IRL....BG is Faux Sanding and the SU paper is retired Rose Romance-one of my all time favorite colors! I used the Scor Pal to make a grid around the outside edges, then took a Sakura Jelly Roll Pen and wrote over the scored line to get some sparkle. The Flourished Sweet Peas are colored with Copics RV00, R81, R83 (I cut out the 5 flowers and glued them over a black stamped image- am I crazy or what???) and I ended up using Green Galore to color in the greenery on the ATC. I added 5/8" sheer organdy in White to finish off the ATC. Now, to get them in the mail!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
