My ATCs


I was invited to be a part of Pink Pineapple's Artist Trading Card Swap this month. The theme was Girl's Night Out so I had to do pink and black of course :)

Here's my card:



I cut one piece of 12×12 Bazzill Black Glazed cardstock with a Damask pattern on it into 12 ATCs — they measure 2.5″ x 3.5″ each. I painted over the cards with pink paint using a foam paint brush. I only put paint on one side of the brush so I turned over the brush to non-painty side and rubbed that on the paper to rub the paint off the glazed portions of the paper to reveal the shiny damask pattern. I then spritzed each card with Smooch Spritz in Pink Sprinkles and then spritzed with water to lighten and spread the Smooch Spritz out on the paper–it is so sparkly and delicious!!

I then cut a spiral from some Anna Griffin paper and made a paper flower with it. I tied some twine into a bow and glued that under the flower before attaching to the card.

I used White Staz-On Opaque ink to stamp “Party” on the bottom right side of the card — it is very subtle.

I diecut a martini glass using a Quickutz die from some Sassafras Lass paper. I added that to the middle of the flower.

Then I used Liquid Pearls in Platinum to create the bubbles from the martini glass — I know, you don't drink champagne from martini glasses but hey, it's my card and I'll make it how I want to! LOL So that is my second ATC ever ;) Will show you all the cards after the swap!!

Happy Creating ;)
