January ATC

Tag ATC's or ATC's with a tag in the design! That's the January ATC swap at Collage Stuff. This is my entry. I started out with a large tag and trimmed it down to 2.5 x 3.5". I trimmed the top corners. The background was made using many things including a floral The Crafter's Workshop Template, white gesso, yellow Glimmer Mist, Hot Pink Dylusions Mica Spray, white acrylic paint and Picket Fence Distress Stain. I started out by apply gesso over the floral template. After it dried, I applied the mist sprays, and dripped Picket Fence Distress Stain from the top. When that was dry, I used white acrylic paint and dry wall tape as a stencil to make the white dots. The background is soft, textured and sparkly.

I applied some drywall tape at the bottom of the ATC. I love this stuff. Get it at your local Lowe's or Home Depot. You can can paint it, mist it, whatever! I dug around in my stamps and a suitable one. I stamped it on white cardstock and embossed with black detail embossing powder. I colored the flower with a paint brush using the same yellow and hot pink mists. I softened the pink UK bus ticket with Picket Fence Distress Stain and added some hot pink mist when the stain was dry. The UK bus ticket needed something more, so I added the yellow blank raffle ticket before adhering the floral image. I printed the words on my computer and the color is applied with a paint brush and hot pink mist. The last step was applying white paint on the edges of the ATC.

Much of the background detail is not visible in the photo, but I had fun playing with the gesso, mica sprays, distress stain and paint!

Thanks for stopping by!
