Fancy another challenge .......

Happy Thursday evening ....

It's time for the last of this months challenges from Happy Little Stampers.  It's the turn of the ATC challenge this evening.

What are ATC's, or Artist Trading Cards?
Well, they're miniature pieces of art work, that measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches.  They can be swapped or traded ...... hence the name Artist Trading Cards ..... but never sold. And they must also have the artists details on the back, and be dated when they were created.

Each month, HLS hosts an ATC challenge, with a different monthly theme to follow.
For May that theme is ...... GOLD

I immediately thought of Gold Embossing ......

I came across a piece of black cardstock in my stash, that had been smooshed with metallic inks and I thought it would make a fabulous base for my set of ATC's

I cut it down to size and then using silver and gold metallic inks I stamped one of the the pretty images from the HLS Dandelion Wishes ..... heat embossing the gold ones

I love how these stand out ......

Each one of the ATC's is the same ...... but different, if you know what I mean

 A simple sentiment ...... again embossed in the gold onto a simple white strip across the bottom of each of the ATCs

A different  sentiment on each one .....

As with all the HLS challenges the winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend in the HLS Store.  And don't forget, if the winner has used HLS stamps in their project then the prize is doubled!

Happy stamping!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day/evening.
Its been a busy day again here ...... but everything is done!! And the old craft room is clean and tidy.  I can actually see my desks!! And I have floorspace .... for how long who knows.
There's stuff happening in the next few weeks ..... changes going on, as well as another little holiday coming up but, more about all that later.
Tomorrow I need to get things organised for my little trip across on Saturday.  Yes, I'm on the early  morning boat ...... fingers crossed it's a calm day.  I'm off to Port Sunlight for a day of craft shopping, catching up with friends, and more craft shopping!  Only two more sleeps!

Cheerio until next time ......
