Go For It - Turning an ATC into a Card


Hi there! Jennifer with you today! Here's my project for this week! I started off thinking I was going to try an ATC and wasn't really jazzed about it when I was done so I turned it into a card instead.

I have to say this was out of my comfort zone but I am happy I attempted it. Here is what I did...

I stamped one of the rubber stamps from

Paper Artsy Wings Plate 6

available at Viva Las Vegastamps on my surface.

I then colored it and added some Ranger Ink over top and faded a little then covered it with Gesso...and scraped so you could see the print below. I added scraps of various adhesive for the border of the image. The layer under that is a little hard to notice but it's textured paper that I added Smootch - Mocha to. For the next layer I used some orange paper from my stash and the layer under that - plain white paper. The main paper for the back is some designer paper I used - added some Sticko swirls and Darice gems. on the very top I had two really old adhesive circle stickers I put on opposite corners and on top of the upper left hand side a metal embellishment that says GO FOR IT. I thought it was really different for me so I thought the phrase was fitting not only for that but for a neat "aged" Encouragement Card or something. Sure, it's a little funky, but I thought it was fun to make.

Swing by my blog when you have a chance and thanks for reading!
