ATC with the works!

This was fun:


  • ATC base cut from a library card, then I snipped the corners off
  • Base coated with Teresa Collins modeling paste through a Tim Holtz stencil
  • Base then painted with Distress Paint in Broken China then smeared with white fluid watercolor paint... I thought it was acrylic before I squirted it onto the project...
  • Gold thread was sitting on my desk, so I ran around my project with it, affixing it on the back with washi.
  • Beautiful nun an image from Lunagirl.  I finished her a long time ago-- she was coated with glossy Mod Podge then accented with various Ranger Liquid Pearls and Stickles.  She was affixed with 3M foam tape.
  • Edge of ATC loosely run with Elmers craft glue and coated with Distress Glitter in Antique Linen
  • Those two little scallops of gold lace were a snippet remaining from about 1'... I cut the two scallops in half and added them to top and bottom with Glossy Accents on reverse.
  • Flowers from my stash
  • Quotes from my book-clippings tin, affixed and coated with Distress Collage Medium in Vintage.
I'll share this at Simon Says Stamp on Monday, where they want us to create ATCs... I hope they haven't placed sleeve restrictions on the ATCs because I generally prefer to load up my ATCs!  I love the format.



  1. How pretty! It's amazing to see all the details on one tiny space! Love that image and how you finished it! Hugs!

  2. WOW, your backrgound is awesome! Love the bright blue and the touch of gold around it, it brightens your ATC even more!
    Thank you for playing along with us over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we all hope to see you again next week!
