Butterfly Dream ATC

I had a lot of fun with this ATC. 
I used lots of embossing powder and a Gelli plate print for the background.

Altered Playing Cards - Aces

My first time altering playing cards. Similar to doing ATC's but you should leave at least one corner to show that it is indeed a playing card.

Quotes and ATC's

Here I used the spin and splash alcohol ink technique for the background. 
Added this fun quote and some skittles for a finished atc.

 This ATC was done using a technique I saw on youtube where you put alcohol ink in water then swipe your paper through it. I then used an embossing folder for the squares.
 Added the quote and other embellishments.

Alcohol Ink ATC's

These two ATC's were made using alcohol inks on glossy paper.
I have never played much with alcohol inks and found it to be kind of challenging.

I do like the end results and think I
 just need to experiment with them some more.

How to Draw Really Good - ATC's

I made these two ATC's following a video on YouTube called "How to Draw Really Good" by Oliver Age 24. I found the videos really funny and have had several family members give it go as well! 
He has several characters that you can pick from to draw.
Check it out HERE 

I chose to draw (evil) Mario and then the Joker.

More Gelli Print Postcards

Here are a few more postcards I made using my Gelli Plate!! 

The first one was done using a Tim Holtz - on the edge - Townscape die, I had cut out with acetate. It didn't come out perfect but I thought it was still kinda cool!

 This next one I used stencils for the background 
and then used paper cut outs from magazines to finish it off.

 Same with this one, 
stencils on the Gelli Plate for background, 
magazine cut outs on top with a little stamping too! 

So fun!!
