1st ever ATCs

It's me again ;)  This time I'm trying out something totally new for me!  I did some ATC ;)  This morning while doing the rounds of my fellow dt from OSAAT, I came across the post from Ali.  She was suggesting a swap of ATC!!!  Well I thought this would be fun... but I have never made them...

So off to google I went and found that they are supposed to be the size of playing cards.  So I decided to try my hand and make 4 like Ali.  So I'm hoping to swap one with her... this will leave 3 more... so if you are interested the 1st 3 people that say they would like to swap will get the other 3.  I'm very much looking forward to seeing the others up close.

I saw that there was a wonderful challenge out there just for this type of art pieces so I made mine with that in mind.  Especially since I had another teammate in mind when I did this.  Last week Calypso mentioned that she was going to challenge herself to use her stamps... well I had a fabulous little set from Inky Antics that had never seen ink... this was the perfect challenge!  New technique and forcing myself to use some of my stamps!

So here they are!  It was harder than I thought because they are really small...  So you need to have smaller type of images...
I used some paper from Safari Chic Stack from DCWV.  I added a little leaf cut with my Dee's wreath builder die.

Here's a closer look of one. The image was colored with my copics.
I'm pretty happy with the results!  And it was fun to challenge myself to try something new!

I'm entering these in the following challenges:
  1. Tuesday alchemy - Hopes, dreams or resolutions (I want to try out some new techniques and this was a perfect opportunity to do so as well as use my stuff (especially my stamps that get very neglected))
  2. Wicked wednesday atc - It's a jungle out there (please be kind... it's my 1st try ;) )
  3. Stamp-n-doodle - Something neglected (my stamps... use mostly digis these days)
  4. Inky impressions challenges - Add sentiment
  5. Loves rubberstamps challenges - Use dies or punches
  6. Lexis creations - Anything goes
  7. Pan pastel uk- New technique
  8. Scrappy frogs challenge - Try something new
I hope there will be some of you that will want to swap with me... ;)  Looking forward to your comments and please be kind since this is my 1st try...

Hugs

  2. These are so cute! Congratulations on your first ever ATCs - I'll be thrilled to swap with you. :D

    So pleased I inspired you to try something new - ATCs are really quite addictive and SO much fun to swap... it's lovely to get a piece of artwork in the post from someone else and to see what they've created. :)

    I'll contact you via the OSAAT FB group to swap mailing addresses. ;)

  3. Wow. You didn't even know this morning how to make them and now you are posting and swapping? You are incredible. I myself just learned what ATC stood for a couple of weeks ago but haven't attempted to create any yet. Maybe soon...

    Hugs,
