March is Malibox Muse Month

This month the Altered Pages Design Team will be sharing many of the Mailbox Muse Stamps available at Altered Pages!!!  I am really excited to see what everyone creates this month!

There are over 15 great sets for just $6 each... be sure to see all of them HERE!  They are the perfect size for Pocket Letters, ATCs and cards!

Today I am using the Mailbox Muse Paris Stamp Set to make my ATC... "an evening in Paris"

To start you will need: 
ATC Echo Board
Mailbox Muse Paris Stamp Set
Pirates Gold Embossing Powder
Pan Pastels Black and White
Black Ink
Glass Glitter
Glitz Gray Stripe Washi Tape
Petaloo Flower
One of a kind Jewelry
Heart Pearl Pins
Tacky Glue
On the ATC Echo Board lightly brush  Black Pan Pastel and then apply a bit of White Pan Pastel for the moon... this makes a great night time background!!!

Before stamping spray lightly with a fixative, I use an aerosol hairspray.  Stamp using the Eiffel Tower from the Mailbox Muse Paris Stamp Set with Black Ink.

Stamp the sentiment using  and Mailbox Muse Paris Stamp Set the heat emboss with Pirates Gold Embossing Powder.  I only wanted the top of the Eiffel Tower and sentiment embossed.

Add a bit of  Glitz Gray Stripe Washi Tape to the lower part of the ATC.

With Tacky Glue add a little Glass Glitter for some bling!

Finally tuck in a couple of Heart Pearl Pins into the Petaloo Flower.

Check out all the Mailbox Muse Stamps they are the perfect size to use for a lot of projects!!!

 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.
