ATC-Alcohol Inks

For March, our ATC group had the theme Alcohol Inks

We start out with a 1-4-1 exchange we call a drop card.  Here is mine:

  I ran a piece of acetate through the big shot and embossed it.  Then ,  I dropped Yellow and purple AI's on a it.  I added an Elizabeth Designs sticker on top.
I am going to enter this into the As You Like It challenge- what do you make besides cards?  I love to make ATC's- so fun to trade these little pieces of art- and fun to look through my binders for a jump start to my creativity!

The ATC I rec'd back for the 1-4- swap was done by Mary W

 Mary also added AI's on acetate, then added metal tape around the edges.  There is a tag attached which has Mary's signature on it.

Here are my ATC's:
I stamped a floral image by Technique Junkies over the red dots- love the way these turned out!


( The one on the Right is still available for trade)

Technique Junkies floral over a plaid AI background on the Lt.
The Rt has a touch of Silver Metallic mixative, and then added the silver embossed spaceship from Stampendous.

The one on the Lt is available for trade.  I stamped a TH image, added a butterfly rub on and added German scrap.  The one on the Rt has a scrapbooking sticker on it- from Frantic Stamper.

one more!

On the Lt- the images are from Technique Junkies- this is available for trade.
On the Rt is an older SU image,

And, here are the ATC's I got in return:

Lt side- Diane S
Rt side- Harriet

I love this- Linda doodled over the AI's- she blew on the inks after they were dropped onto the cardstock.

Lt side in Linda O
Rt side- LuEllen

Mary added more acetate with AI's and put metallic tape on the edges- this one is backed so you cannot see through it like the drop card above.
Diane added the inks on by dripping- isn;t that a great effect?

Lt- Mary W
Rt - Diane M

Lt- Dee Dee added the AI on Vellum
Rt- Marcie ut foil over an ATC then embossed it.  Next, she colored in the flowers.

Lt side- Dee Dee
Rt- Marcie
