Okay, so instead of working on my DT project for this week I've been messing around with an ATC. Have you seen the new(ish) Wicked Wednesday ATC Blog? Jenn has some fun challenges for ATC's only and this week it's being sponsored by Dilly Beans. Since ATC's are only 2.5" x 3.5" I figured I could slip one in today quickly but got pretty involved trying to come up with something a bit different. The challenge is Flowerful and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to use another of my adorable Dilly Beans stamps. This one is #186 Framed Flower girl. After coloring her with Copics, I used my craft knife to cut out the frame and background. I tried a number of Dp's behind it, but in my stash was an old laser cut sheet. Cool! Then I came across some really heavy acetate from the now defunct Short Cuts and wondered if anyone ever makes transparent ATC's. Well, they do now! LOL Not the greatest background here, but I wanted you to see that you could see through it.
Whenever I print a digi stamp. I always print it at least twice (more likely 3 times) just in case I screw up the coloring or decide to layer the image. Big surprise, the flower is layered and I've used a tiny button for the flower center. Often ATC's are traded and the back is used to write the artist's name, blog, and whatever other pertinent info you want to include, a bit of a prob for a transparent one. LOL However, on the back I added a Scalloped Nestie Oval behind her head ( and not visible from the front) for a place to write if need be. This was a really fun challenge for me since my mojo has really needed a shot in the arm. I know I'll be playing again soon. If you want to try something new, why not pop over to the Wicked Wednesday Challenge Blog and be inspired. There's still a couple of days left for this challenge and there's an adorable Dilly Beans Stamp up for grabs. I'm also entering this in the ATC Challenge Blog #15 Anything Goes or Lace Challenge, the Squiggles Saturday Anything But a Card Challenge, and the Speedy's Friends Black, White and One Other Color Challenge (I'm assuming eye and skin color doesn't count here). Now I better get my butt in gear, or there'll be no BBTB2 for tomorrow. YIKES!
