Hero Arts ATC Swap

A while back Karen in Canada set up an ATC swap over at the Hero Arts Flickr group.  I decided to enter this swap.  My ATC's are now in Karen's hands and in due course she will mix them with all the other's and send out 8 cards to each participant.

I decided to make  4 different designs with 2 of each ATC

ATC's for Flickr swap

Butterfly


For this one I use Hero Arts Antique Writing background stamped in green distress ink and distressed with the same ink.  The butterfly is a great favourite of mine which was also coloured with distress inks.  I added a Martha Stewart punched trellis and the sentiment from Kaisercraft.

Dreams


More distress ink in #2 ATC.  I sponged a variety of colours and then liberally spritzed with water.  Once dry I added the little letters, flourish and the Hero Arts Bird.

Enjoy the journey

My favourite ATC of the lot... Again lots of distress ink and Hero Arts stamps.   I started by sponging the inks onto the white card and spritzed with Shimmer spritz in silver.  Started with the Postcard stamp, the postmark, the Pennyfarthing and then the sentiment. Finished with the Fiskars Threading water punch.  

Friends Forever

This last one uses a Tim Holtz stamp for it's main image with a Hero Arts sentiment.  Distressed with a mixture of Pumice Stone and Mustard Seed inks.  Finished with three little peelcraft dots

As this weeks challenge over at Simon Says Stamping Challenge blog is "Tags or ATC's" I'm entering these.

Hope your weekend is going to be full of fun and some crafting time too...

Oh, Dawn--all of your ATCs are amazing! I love that you made some in landscape format, too. I'll be on the lookout for future ATC swaps; missed this one!

Wow! These are all fantastic! My favorite is the bicycle. I think it is the stamp but also the colors that make it extra wow.
