Bird ATC

The bird stamp is from I stamped her on the paper and then just doodled around her. I think it kind of looks like heads in the black background, it just happened that way.. I colored it all in with Sharpie markers.

Both ATC's were done on gelli print backgrounds. And I used WOW embossing powder on each. I really love that blue! The flower and saying are rub-ons. I outlined the flower in pen.

Butterfly ATC's

This first one is done on a gelli print background. 
I added WOW embossing powder around the edges and randomly on the butterfly. 

 The next one I used scrapbook paper as my background and again added WOW embossing powder in 2 different colors in random spots. The butterfly was heat embossed using a Tim Holtz stamp.

Gone with the wind ATC

A vintage couple.  While out at antiques stores and flea markets I came across MGM Movies Game, actually my hubby found it! It's a box of photo trivia game from 1984. It has 107 old photos from movies in it with questions and answers on the back.  This picture is one from Gone With The Wind. I used my i-rock setter for the center of the flowers. Found a quote from the movie online.

Gelli print + cut and paste ATC's

I love to use my gelli prints as backgrounds for my ATC's.  I should probably add more doodling or something to them but am unsure and maybe even scared I will ruin them... I added cut and paste images from Hidden Vintage Studios to both cards. The top one has some rub-ons added and then they both have sayings cut from a magazine.

I am what I am - ATC

For this artist trading card I used one of my gelli prints for the background. The head is one of my hand drawings that I colored in with sharpies and I placed her on a body from Tumble Fish Studio. Flake is a magazine cut out. Added some ink pen around the edges.
