I'm back again with another atc. I enjoyed the last one so much I wanted to do another for my atc album and Inspiration Emporium.
I wanted to use my Tim Holtz mini blueprint set. I stamped the oak leaf stamp with Archival Jet Black ink on a Tim Holtz journaling ticket, it fit perfectly, YAY, they are perfect for atc's and the mini blueprint stamps!
I stamped the oak leaf again on cream cardstock and colored it in with Distress Markers in dried marigold, rusty hinge, fired brick, tea dye and worn lipstick, I did some blending with the water brush. I cut the leaf out and embossed it with clear embossing powder on VersaMark ink and adheared it to the ticket.
I took the VersaMark pad and swiped it on the edges of the ticket and embossed it with black embossing powder for some distressing. I used my tracing wheel around the ticket for some faux stitching and put mini fasteners in the corners.
I cut a 2.5 x 3.5 piece of Tim's 8x8 collage paper and adhered it to the card base. Then I dry embossed it with the woodgrain texture fade. I put Archival coffee ink on the raised areas of the card. I added 2 more pieces of paper then I did some faux stitching on the sides. Finally, I adhered the ticket to the card.
I hope you'll give atc's a go if you haven't already, I really like them, they're fun to collect!
