Happy Little Stampers ATC January Challenge

Hello everyone!

I am excited to announce that I have joined Happy Little Stampers ATC Challenge team. Today is my very first post with them and I am so excited!

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. 

This month's theme is Vintage. I loved creating my ATC!

First I used the ink Baked Brown Sugar from Stampin' Up to get that nice blended dark vintage-y look for the background. I made the edges darker by using the ink and not blending it with the blending tool.

After I got the color exactly how I wanted it I took a large word background stamp and inked it in white ink. 

Once I stamped the words and had the background I die cut a butterfly from a punch my mom, Lisa from OhSoCuteByLisa, had in her stash. I am always borrowing her supplies! Make sure to check out her ATC card as well because we are both on this team, so cool!!

Next I added a pearl to the center of the butterfly for an added finish. 

The last step was adding in twine to the top of the card. 

That is it. This card was so much fun to make and I am so happy to be on this team and able to share much more like these cute cards with all of you. 

I hope you'll play along with us this month and enter the ATC challenge at Happy Little Stampers

Thanks for stopping by!
