Begging For Broads...

For this fun ATC, I used copper metal tape for my background. I embossed it. The wording I found in a magazine and adhered it onto black cardstock. The picture came from Tumble Fish Studio.

Plastic jug on an ATC

There was a challenge to use plastic from a milk jug on an ATC. 

I used copper metal tape that I dry embossed for my background. Stamped the image and cut it out, distressed it. Then placed the piece of milk jug on top. secured with big eyelets and ran some metal wire through the holes. 'Generations' was stamped, cut and distressed. Added to the top for a finish.

2 Valentine ATC's

Here are a couple more ATC's I made with a Valentine's theme. 

The first one I used a piece of lace, a stamped and cut out heart with feathers behind it and the word love stamped on top. The arrows were a stamp that was cut out too. The background is red cardstock and a piece of old torn book paper and 3 red gems.

 This next one I used a Hello Kitty cut out I received in a swap back in my Cricut days. I then stamped hugs & kisses onto the balloon. A piece of lace down one edge with some red gems. Background is red cardstock with old music paper that I white washed.
