TGIF, well that and ATC's!

You may have heard about the fun we are going to have making ATC's this month at Alteredpages.com.  What makes it really great is we would love for YOU to be a part of it too! 
We want to see your ATC original works!

Take a look at a couple pretty little ATC's I created and the supplies I used.  Then make sure to check out the details that follow on how you can participate and even win prizes!
I really wanted to make Collage Images  from Altered Pages the focal point for this project.  The MANY collage images they carry are one of the original reasons everyone LOVES Altered Pages.  They have thousands upon thousands of images for all type of projects.



Here I used a vintage ATC for my background, a large fussy cut sunflower printed on vellum and a beautiful Parisian dame.  I added a bit of green ribbon that I tied three little knots in just for some added dimension.  The mechanics of attaching the ribbon is hidden on the back by adding an ATC Back  for you to add your name and date.  All images were adhered using Aleene's Tacky Glue.

Be sure to sign your work.




This next ATC uses the Collage Background in Green as the base.  I then added a glass tile image, an Eiffel Tower printed on acetate and another French beauty.  I also added a bit more of that green ribbon to the top of the card. 
Hopefully, you can see in this image above that I came back in with a bit of silver Metallic Rubon pastel on just the beautiful skirt she is wearing to give it a little pop.  I love the creams and greens in these two ATC's.  They give just a little nod to Fall...my favorite!

 I hope you enjoyed.
