ATC Anyone?

Happy Sunday! Where has July gone? Well here is my final Stamper's Dream project for the month of July. It's an ATC (Atrist Trading Card). I wanted to use up my yummy scraps from my Melissa Frances 5th Avenue paper. ATC's are the perfect size for all those bits of designer paper leftovers. I adhered the DP to a 2.5 x 3.5 chipboard piece. I then dry brushed the edges with white acrylic paint for a more shabby look. The birdcage image is from Maya Road Bird w/Cage Singleton Stamp Set. I embossed the birdcage on a transparency sheet with white embossing powder. I fussy cut the image and I tied some May Arts Ivory Burlap String to look like a chain link. I absolutely love owls and I had this owl charm in my hoard vault and used hot glue to adhere it in the center of the cage.

I had some leftover crochet trim and placed it at the top of the card. Kasiercraft pearl bling in Bliss was used on top of the trim, and as well as on the birdcage and corners of the ATC. I still had some of the Kaisercraft Paper Blooms from a previous project and used that on the corner. I used some flowers from I Am Roses in my stash as fillers. As another accent piece, I added a Rose Sparkler from Webster's Pages. Hope you liked my little piece of art. ATC's are fast and simple to make after you've finished a project. Use the scraps you've just made and create a quick and easy ATC. Enjoy the rest of your day! Thanks for stopping by =)
