Hello all, it's Amy sharing a project today, that's just a little bit south of the average ATC....what I'm going to call "chunky ATC's!"
Next, I grabbed a vintage printed paper bag I received from a local store, and upcycled it...it has some really fun images on it. I tore four pieces, and adhered using my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher mini stapler. On top of this, I added a strip of paper, from the 6x6 Nature Walk collection by 7 Dots Studio, adhering with Miracle Tape.
Prior to adding my stamped images, I added bits of burlap and cheesecloth....for even more yummy texture. Adding little splash of walnut inks here and there, gave a little flash of color, as well.
Finally, I stamped my images onto a library card. For each of the images, I used gorgeous Tsukineko inks in copper, silver and gold.....and stamped them as a gradient for interest. I cut these out, and added with foam tape. After adding bits of chipboard, metal, flowers and more.......I had four cards done.
I believe I will frame these in a vintage style shadowbox frame. I think that will add a touch of quirky vintage to my living room!
Thanks so much for having a look today!
