ATC Peek.....

My dear friend Ally is hosting ATC swap's these days and I just HAD to take part!! Our challenge was to create an ATC (Artist Trading Card) using transparencies. ATC's are 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 fun little cards to trade with your friends (or in this case, random people that have decided to join Ally in her quest for ATC goodness). The goodies I decided to use in my card were a Hambly transparency (the bright orange with the owl perched on a branch in the bottom corner...which is NOT displayed on the cards due to size constraints), a piece of Creative Imaginations pink die-cut dot paper, turquoise glitter ribbon, an acrylic stamp (actually two) that says..."Be... You" stamped inside another acrylic stamp which is a conversation bubble outlined in dots, a Maya Road frosted flower that I painted using Lil Davis sheer green paint, an iridescent flower crumpled up and layered inside the other flower and fastened together with a rhinestone brad. Had to use some pop-dots here and there to add dimension, oh yes and a splash of orange stickles here and there. Pretty simple, but fun and cute. Our next ATC challenge is to use glitter.....ok....SO excited about that one.

Oh yeah...and my digital camera is on the blink from being dropped on my kitchen floor by my daughter (accidentally), so the photo here of my ATC is not that great...they are actually MUCH cuter in person....if I do say so myself....and I DO!! HEHEH
