Halloween ATCs
Happy Friday, Artsociates!  I recently went on my annual craft getaway weekend with my cousin.  We go to a scrapbooking lodge every year to enjoy non-stop crafting and pampering.  We had a lot of fun!!  I had a couple of projects marked as have-to-dos and I am proud to say they were both done by Saturday afternoon!  Then it was time to play.  I got out some pre-cut ATC (Artist Trading Card) chipboard and stamps from both Altered Pages and Sin City Stamps.  The two companies are partnered in August and my second project this month is Halloween themed!  Today I am sharing the six ATCs I made with these stamps.

Two stamp sets from Altered Pages and a few stamps from Sin City were used to create the designs above.  Most of these are masked, with the exception of the winged gargoyle.  In that case, this head and body were stamped on a piece of card stock, trimmed and glued on. 

I have provided a list at the bottom of the post for you.  Most of these have a combination of inks ranging from Sharpies to StazOn.  There aren't any dimensional embellishments on these while I decide if they will stand alone or be used to create greeting cards.

 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.
