ATC’s- lots of ‘em…….

My one year Blog-versary Giveaway post is HERE

 I joined an ATC group in June- and just attended the second meeting. Each meeting there is a swap with a theme, and a bouns ATC we make and pick blindly out of a brown bag.
July- theme is Movies/stars
I used tissue paper for the background. I found a picture of Lucy and Ricky on the internet- I always loved watching I Love Lucy….. I used a Cuttlebug cutout for the red postage stamp background. I stamp and gold embossed a rose from Firecracker Designs by Pamela, and colored it in with Copics. I cut out the rose and tied gold organdy ribbon around the stem. It needed ‘something’…so I dragged the edges over the Versamark pad and gold embossed the edge .
 We made folded ATC's at the last gathering and used our project as the 'Bonus' ATC this month. Here is the one I created:
That is a napkin applied to a folded ATC (with Gel Medium) .  I sewed on ribbon in a ‘rouched’ style,  then gathered the left over piece at the edge and folded it in 1/2 to make a flower.
This is the first time I have ever used a napkin on a project......
Here are the ATC’s I recieved in the Movies/Stars theme:
Shari, Sandy and Diane (bottom)
Diane and Harriet
Carol, Debbie and Susan
Cindy and Marcella
The inside of Marcella’s ATC
Michelle’s card- we can choose to make any theme as well.
Here is the ‘Bonus card’ I got in the draw:

I have previously posted my June ATC- the theme is Love/Romance and I made an ‘Antique Wallpaper’ background:
Stamps by Firecracker Designs by Pamela
I never posted the June ATC’s I received- so here they are:
Trena, Debbie, Harriet
Marcella, Michelle, Carol
Diane S and Shari
(we can also choose any ‘other’ ATC in other members folders- I just had to have these great ‘prior’ ATC’s)
Mary W and Lisa (also an ‘other’ theme)
Mary W inside
My Bonus draw ATC- made by Marcella
Marcella’s ATC open.
I am enjoying trying new techniques like applying napkins to cardstock and folded ATC’s.

 There is a Themed ATC challenge Blog that I enjoy participating in- Fun with ATC’s- Challenge #13 theme is Flowers – so, I added the rose to this ATC so it would meet the theme- I think it is the perfect touch this ATC needed. 
Thanks for stopping by!
