I was asked to make 4 projects, 2 for the challenge blog and 2 for either the designers blog or the Stampotique blog. Sam Read has chosen the theme for the first week of the challenge blog and she chose ATC's.
I took an atc sized (3.5" x 2.5") piece of white card and the salty ocean distress ink pad and simply placed the pad directly onto the card and applied some pressure. I stamped the spidergrass in versamark ink and embossed it with vanilla white wow powder. I then over stamped it with black versafine. I stamped the beauty verse onto white card, cut the words out and outlined each of them in black pen. Finally I edged the atc in black pen.
As I'd also chosen these two stamps to work with, single tear and love travels I decided to make another Atc. The background is shades of fresco greens, with vanilla diamonds stencilled over them, but then I gave the atc a few layers of bees wax. I stamped the single tear directly onto the wax. The verse was stamped onto white card, cut into single words and each word was edged in black pen and stuck onto the atc with glossy accents which stuck to the wax quite well. I then placed the Atc into a 2.5" x 3.5" photo frame. So two reasons why it's not photographed that well, the wax and the glass, both giving off glare!! But you get the general idea.
