OK...not really because I've done ATC (Artist Trading Cards) before, but it's been a L-O-N-G time! I was perusing various online challenges (it's AMAZING how many there are!) and while I'm not participating in any of them with this ATC, it was a challenge that inspired me to create one. :)
ATC must be 2 ½" x 3 ½" - no smaller, no larger, so that's the size of my Basic Black base. The other layers (Delightful Dijon and Very Vanilla) are just ⅛" smaller.
I stamped my image from Lovely as a Tree in Archival Black Ink and sponged the edges with Delightful Dijon Ink.
I tore a couple of pieces of Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper and sponged the torn edges of those too. They were then stacked onto the Very Vanilla panel. The finishing touch was a length of Linen Thread tied into a bow.
What do you think?
