October Collage Stuff ATC Swap

Every month at the Collage Stuff yahoo group, we have an ATC swap. October's theme was "Vintage Children." I'm always the last one done with my ATC's. One reason this is true is because I don't know how many I need to make until all of swap ATC's come in. Usually, it's mid-month of the following month before all of the swap ATC's are in my hands. For the October swap, I need to make 14-16 ATC's. That means I have to have an ATC design that will go quickly so that I can replicate it over and over in one afternoon. It still has to be something I like though. Before I can swap the ATC's, I have to photograph or scan one ATC from each participant. Then I crop and size the photos and upload them to the Collage Stuff swaps page. Doing these swaps each month, takes a fair amount of time.

In the construction of this ATC, I used the following Collage Stuff products: Stylish Background Rubber Stamp, Samantha Collage Sheet, Nesting Collage Sheet, Cigar Trim Labels and a Brass Bird Nest Charm. I colored the Samantha image with my Copic markers.

Have you tried the Liquid Watercolors? You can buy them at any art supply store online - Dick Blick etc. I used the Gold Liquid Watercolor on this ATC. The Gold Liquid Watercolor is incredibly shiny.

Back to work on the ATC's!
