Happy Little Stampers ATC

This is the second ATC I made for the current Happy Little Stampers ATC challenge, but it is my fave and therefore the first one I'll be posting-- possibly the only one of I run out of time today!

  • The base is about 10 years old, and I believe it was from a 7 Gypsies packet, but the packaging is long gone.
  • I stamped the base with a hand-carved stamp in Ranger Archival in Jet Black
  • Then coated the card with Distress Collage Medium: Crazing
  • Once dry, I attempted to ink within the cracks using Distress Stains but it really didn't penetrate to the card surface, so I went with Distress Crayons in Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, Tumbled Glass, and Mermaid Lagoon.
  • Stickers are Tim's Chitchat stickers
That's about it! I'll share this at the following:
