More ATC fun...

I had forgotten how much fun ATC's are to make.... so pleased that Hero Arts decided to include them in this month challenge.   I made a few more that I'd like to share....
First up ~ this set of 2
Dreams

These were inspired by this sunrise photo that Tilly took on her farm north of where I live.
 My background was made with distress inks and I stamped the Scroll Tree, using second generation stamping as well.  I then spritzed the background with water to give a dreamy look.  Finished with some tiny alpha stickers.  And I have entered these into Wee Memories challenge this week ~ to use stickers

On Saturday, I did another ATC while at group... not all black and white!

ATC - collage

Once again made my background with distress inks.  If you haven't already realised yet, I LOVE distress inks.  I then stamped a Hero Arts Collage stamp onto the card.  I added some gold liquid pearls and then stamped the image again and coloured the flower with Fired Brick distress ink mixed with liquid pearls, cut it out and layered it onto the image.

I liked how this turned out so much, I decided to make a matching card.... using the whole of the Collage stamp.   I did exactly the same as the ATC
Collage Card

I trimmed the card to make it squarish.

I've joined HA Flickr group ATC swap and my partner is Vivi who lives in Hong Kong.... so maybe one of these might be making their way there....

Have a great week....

Love your ATCs, Dawn! That picture is pretty amazing, and your ATCs captured it well! Nice seeing that collage stamp again, too - wish HA would do a few of them every year......
