My first ATCs

Hi ya, well me making ATCs what do you think? I had to have a go I was over at SCD And saw the ATCs they made with the title 'wings' I love the DT efforts and the week before it was 'mad as a hatter' and I just loved all the stuff they came up with so clever. o I thought to my self, I am going to have a go, so I did one with wings, but this is finished now and the NEW theme is 'KEYS' I just thought of 21 Key of the door! so that is my ATC.

So first I did a beautiful back ground with my new GM & DI then I made a door and still more GM then the grunge board came out and I covered these in GM too!

This is the 'WINGS' one I love how this turned out and this is truly my 1st ATC I have stuck to the measurements, however it's only card stock. I think its surposed to be something more substancial like board. Any way I got some GM and stamps out and some stuff that has been in my stash forever! and was really happy with this end result.

I did the butterfly twice, stuck the second one by the body to the first and added rock candy all over both layers. inked up the leter B and stamped that with a butterfly too. as well as all the background in different colours and with different stamps, and I had lots of fun, and that's the most important thing that we have fun when we craft. My hubby still says although he didn't think the card he made for me was great he really enjoyed him self and will never buy me a card again. (so looks like I will have to share my goodies with him now and again ;0)Thank you for looking& any comments you leave. Love Dawn xx

Brilliant atcs hope you found the size and format fun to work on! No doubt you have the ideas! Any card or material provided the size is right, people often store them in little plastic sleeves! Have fun.
