Recently I hosted an ATC swap on my blog and of course with the hundreds of Collage Sheets available at Altered Pages it was hard to narrow it down but I did...

Wine a little ATC

I started off with some Vintage Text papers for the background which I then stamped on some grapes.  I printed out several wine labels small enough to fit on my cards behind Stella which comes from the Vices collage sheet.  She's actually drinking gin but I used a bit of purple ink to color the "wine".  I printed out the sentiment, inked the edges with a bit of black ink.


I used a few Pink Persimmon stamps for this atc... She's actually mounted over some old pattern paper that I stamped using a variety of the PP stamps.  I also added a small bit of washi tape, a button from my stash and a few dots of Stickles Glitter Glue for some sparkle to finish it off!

Have you made any ATC's lately?

  1. Love the fun feel!!! Awesome job!!!

  2. These are both fun ATCs. You have a real knack with these. Lots of layers without making them feel crowded is not an easy thing to do on such a small surface!! I love this little wine card best. :-)

  3. OH MY GOSH LOVE THESE!!!! I certainly LOVE your style!!!

  4. I just think these are the cat's meow! LOL Love them - so fun and clever. Wonderful work!

  5. Pink Pomegranate is one of my favorites! Love that you incorporated so many elements into a tiny ATC. THANKS for making great projects!

  6. Absolutely beautiful ATCs, and I agree with Robin. You sure know how to put ATCs together juuuuust right.

  7. Very creative ATC's!!! And yes to your question, I just finished 8 ATC's for a swap and have a few more to go ♥

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
