By Request ATCs

It was super neat to have two ladies (Lorena and Katja) ask me to do mystery ATC swaps after I posted my ATC cards made for Magenta's Spring Swap 2014 on my Instagram.

I tried to use some of the elements from the ATCs they originally inquired about and made these little lovelies.

Supplies: photo paper(Staples), hello, bonjour and hola stamps (Magenta), friend stamp (Winnie and Walter), distress ink and blk ink (Ranger), pink StazOn ink (Tsukineko), pen (Creative Memories), flower sequin (Dollarama), glitter (Recollections)

Supplies: photo paper (Staples), sentiment stamp (Magenta), heart background cut file (Silhouette), distress inks and blk ink (Ranger), vellum (misc.)

Both are made on photo paper using Magenta Stamps and Distress inks / StazOn.

I made this one as the partner to the above one. The first one focused on the love-heart part of the sentiment. Here the grow-flower part of the sentiment was the focus.

Supplies: stamps (Magenta), watercolour cardstock, distress ink, and blk ink (Ranger), wht Stamper's Big Brush (Faber-Castell)

The last one was just because I was on a roll and had little pieces of leftover watercolour scraps from this card still on my desk. I had punched a vellum version of the bird and branch which I decided to colour with distress inks and paired it this fabulous Magenta sentiment stamp. I mix media gelled it all to a scrap distress inked and glimmer misted piece of watercolour paper, and then added black glitter glue as a final touch.

Supplies: watercolour paper (Canson), sentiment stamp (Magenta), distress inks, blk ink and gel medium (Ranger), glimmer mist (Tattered Angels), punch (Stampin' Up), glitter glue (Hampton Arts)

I had fun making these ATCs.  I especially like when I can use up scrap bits. Yeah for upcycling! Thanks to Lorena and Katja for the push.
