Foray into ATC's

I am fascinated by these mini works of art and a huge fan of Tim Holtz, fit and talented what more can you ask!!

Today I had a go at these little gems. I raided my boxes and drawers and found a multitude of bits and pieces that lend themselves to ATC art. I already had lots of Distress Ink pads so that was a help I like the Tim Holtz ones as they give you time to blend the colours. I cut some Glossy A3 cardstock into pieces as that is good for ink blending the shiny surface works well but you do have to allow a little extra time for drying.

I recently got some new stamps from Crafty Individuals and had some others already, I am very into nature stamps, trees, and leaves especially. I made 3 sets of cards today. The photo's are not very good as the light is bad so might try to update them in daylight.

  1. I really like your ATCs, especially the Woodland ones. I especially like the one with the orangey background, it is stunning!

  3. Hi Sandra,
    I couldn't get to this point before, i think Mr Blogger was playing up!!

    Thanks for the sweet comment you left, the chickens are coming on fine and all their feathers are starting to grow back :) We have other birds too....4 bantams and two Indian Runner ducks....they all get on famously with the three cats, so all is well.
    your ATC's are fab :) i've only managed a couple till now, but i could see they might become addictive...
