The theme this month over on the Blank Page Muse blog is ATCs.
The technique I am using to create my background has been around for a while now, but I recently saw a tutorial from Jenny Marples and she reminded me how fun this can be.
I started by stamping my Flower Stamps from the Flower and Bird Sketches set on to a blank piece of tissue wrap. If you are going to try this technique be sure to use a permanent ink when stamping this bit.
Once the ink was dry I flipped my tissue over and painted the flowers using very bright colors. I dried the paint and then stamped the Flowers and Leaves Border using a brown permanent ink.
This is what the correct side of the tissue looks like. Isn't that cool?!
I covered my ATC in dictionary paper.
I glued down my tissue and then stitched around the edges.
I added my paper doll, sentiment, and flower charm. To complete the card I added some ink to the edges and around the paper doll.
The second card was done basically the same way, but I didn't stitch the edges.
Don't forget to enter into the challenge that can be found on the Blank Page Muse blog!
