This week's Grungy Monday challenge involves creating an ATC (artist trading card) using any of Tim Holtz's signature products or techniques!
Since Valentine's Day is just a week away, I thought I'd style my ATC with a love theme using non-traditional V-Day colors.
The background was created with one of Tim's new Texture Fade embossing folders that I picked up from Paper Mermaids. I brushed some Perfect Pearls onto the embossed cardstock then inked the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink. My flower pendant was created using Tim's Tattered Florals die and Kraft Glassine paper. After attaching the flower with a brad, I brushed some Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls on top. The sentiment comes from an adorable Hero Arts & Basic Grey stamp set called "Kissing Booth." I inked up my Salvage Sticker and attached it to my ATC using glue and Tim's Tiny Attacher ... and for some added romanticism, I stuck some tulle (brushed with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls) and a feather behind my heart stamp.
I love ATC's - they're so tiny!
