ATC's and ATC Holder

 Back of Holder

 Center ATC Close Up

Down Under the Deets


The ATC's are each printed out onto Whisper White card stock.
Each has a bit of fussy cut or torn edges. 
Each was colored in with color pencils, markers, inks, Blender Pen and Aqua Painter.

Base of each ATC is different colors of blue card stock.
On the upper right and lower left ATC's there is an extra layer of backgrounds that were made with acrylic paints and home made gelli plate.

Smeared Ink Rubber Club stamps used were from sets:
Dedicated to Art (Dec 2013)
Danse Macabre (Jan 2014)
Nymphs (Feb 2014)
Each of these sets can be viewed in the Rubber Club Past Offerings area.

Close up of Center ATC shows the Ranger Distress Crackle Paint, Clear Rock Candy, which is
covering each ATC.
A circle template was also used for this center background with sponge and ink.

Top right and lower left ATC's have punched chain card stock.  Punch is by EK.
