Good Morning Peeps!! It is Saturday and that means it is time for another new challenge at Our Creative Corner.
This week our challenge hostess is Rebecca Ednie from Eclectic Endeavours and her challenge for us is:
Let's make ATCs! These mini pieces of art measure 2.5x3.5" and are fun and quick to make! Show us your ATC as is or incorporate it into another project. Here's the Twist. You have to use Kraft plus cream or white, black or chocolate and ONLY ONE other main colour.
I chose to incorporate my ATC into my card and show it to you that way. The ATC is easy to spot on here, it is the middle piece. I had never made an ATC until this challenge, so be easy on me. I too, mis-read the instructions, (Hey, it happens!), when making mine ATC. So when I started making this I thought I needed to use cream, my watercolor paper, and to use Kraft or chocolate or black, but it really was yo use Kraft plus chocolate or black. But by the time I realized my mix-up I wasn't in the mood to start over, so my black comes in the form of the stamped outline of the flowers and leaves. Sorry about that, but after the week I have had it just has to be that way! LOL!!!
My one color on here is Pacific Point, love that color! My base is crumb cake and then I used pacific point for the next layer. I embossed that layer with the tulip frame EF. The middle piece or the ATC is made up Crumb Cake, Pacific Point and my water colored piece. I added the flower heads to the piece with some foam tape. The flowers are from the Stampin' Up Sweet Summer stamp set. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I used a bunch of small silver pearls on the flowers and added some very vanilla seam binding ribbon.
I hope you’ll play along this week and have fun with this challenge! Be sure to check out the rest of the OCC design team creations! To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave a comment linking to your project over at Our Creative Corner so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC.
Well, that is all from me for now, Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
