There is just something about ATC’s that I absolutely love. Maybe is because each one is so different from the next or because their tiny presentations give such pleasant surprises from them when trading them. I am always thrilled when I get ATC’s from my design team. They put thought into everything they do, but there is just something that is a little extra special when I get an ATC.
One of my favorite stamps is the Silhouette Cameo Girl and my favorite colors happen to be pink and brown. Big surprise there, as a lot of my own work uses just colors.
I was thrilled to get these little ATC’s in the mail from Design Team Member Jean Saunderman. She combined all of my favorite elements.
She knows how to create the perfect vintage feel. First she pulled coordinating brown and pink patterned papers. She aged them more by swiping brown ink across the surface of her paper. She then stamped the Swirls stamp with Sepia ink as shown.
She stamped the cameo girl with brown ink onto pink card stock and cut around the stamped image. She then layered it onto the ATC surface. She finished it off with burgundy flowers gold brads and a strand of pearls as shown.
For this next ATC, Jean pulled together 3 little stamps that work beautifully together. She grabbed a patterned paper with greens burgundies and cream colors. She then tore a swatch of this paper into the shape shown. She aged the paper by edging with brown ink. She then stamped the green card stock with the flower bouquet and versa mark ink. She rounded the corners and edged it with brown ink.
For continuity, she stamped the images with brown ink. And colored in with burgundy, cream and green chalks. She finished with a translucent pink ribbon, music note and soft pink flower as shown.
