ATC's that I made last night

Yesterday I made a card for a swap, and it felt good to sit down and create a piece of art. So, I cut up some Strathmore water color paper and made some ATC's as they are fast and easy to make. I used the Marisposa scrapbook papers, piece of an old book, stamped and added a charm and glitzy stones.


the atc's above...the woman and saying were stamped, colored with pencil, sponged background. The Spring Flowers I took plain newsprint and heat embossed the flower with clear ink, and then sprayed the paper with Adirondack inks. Let the ink dry, and rubber stamped and then added tiny yellow buttons to the flowers centers.
I use to love humorous stamping...always made me laugh although many didn't get my sense of humor. :-)
