Time for some ATCs .......

Happy Wednesday .....

Stop the week ...... I want to get off!!
Talk about busy ....... I'm taking multi-tasking to another level ....... and I haven't even started packing anything up for the move yet!!  We've just had the 6th February confirmed as the big day so there's plenty of time ..... eeek!!!!!
We'll get there though, we always do!

Anyhow ..... one of the jobs on the To Do List today is the Happy Little Stampers ATC challenge

So .... what is an ATC?  Well ...... if you don't already know, an Artist Trading Card (ATC) is

  •  a little piece of artwork that measure's 2.5 x 3.5 inches (approx 64 x 89mm) 
  •  they can be traded for other ATC's,  but not sold
  •  be flat enough to fit into a plastic trading card sleeve
  •  and they must have the artists details on the back and be signed and dated
They're fun to make too!

January's theme is all about ..... Trees
Here's what I came up with ........

PaperArtsy stamps ....... EKD01 and  EKD02

(love these little hedgehogs)

 Distress Oxide were used for the backgrounds ....... smooshed onto white cardstock

And then a little extra colour added using ZIG Clean Colour Markers

The sentiments are from the same stamp sets as the trees and birds apart from this one ....

 ....... this is part of a larger stamp by Inkylicious, I just inked the bit I needed
I then cut each of the sentiments into separate words and attached them to the ATC's, and to finish off I added a few dots of Liquid Pearls to some of the branches

I like to do sets of ATC's .... usually three but you can do as many as you like.
There's a prize for the challenge winner .... a $20 Gift Certificate to spend in the HLS store and something new for 2018 is .... if the winner has used HLS stamps on their project then the prize is DOUBLED ..... that's $40 to spend!  But .... you have to be in it to win it!

Check out the HLS Blog for more details and you'll also find lots of inspiration on there from the rest of the Design Team.

Happy stamping!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day/evening.

Cheerio until next time .....
