I am back again with the March
Every month Happy Little Stampers has an
ATC challenge and the theme for March is Hearts.
For anyone who isn't familiar with ATC cards, they are mini
works of art that measure 2.5" x 3.5" and are traded around the world.
Usually they are numbered and signed on the back by the artist.
Here is my ATC card for this month:
For my ATC this month I decided to use a brick embossing folder on
my card base and do some blending over it with Vintage Photo
Distress Oxide ink keeping it lighter in the middle.
I darkened the edges with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink
to bring more focus to the center of the card.
Next I took some Barn Door Distress Ink and did
some ink blending on white card stock until it was nice and dark.
I then punched out 2 heart shaped die cuts out of it and
inked their edges with Black Soot to match the edges of the card.
My Tim Holtz sticker book had the perfect sentiment to tie
into this month's theme of hearts so I cut it
into smaller pieces and inked the edges as well.
To finish off my ATC card I tied red and brown twine
around the top of the card for a little more interest.
I hope you'll play along with us this month
and enter the ATC challenge at
The winner for this challenge will receive a badge to display on their blog!
Have a great day, I already am!
