ATC Alert/Wednesday Stamper

Last night I was at a local scrapbooking store which hosted an ATC class with Claire Hampton, senior educator for Hampton Arts (no relation). Claire is a real kick and the class was tons of fun.. We were given a bag of odds and ends (bits and bobs she calls them) and given free reign to create ATC's using some of the background techniques she demonstrated.

I had previously only made one ATC in my life, so I was really wanting to give it another try.

This is the first one I made -- and probably my favorite. The only thing I added of my own was the martini charm. Found it at home and thought it was just the perfect touch.

We all were given pages from a book to look for random phrases we could use on our ATC's. My page was about a political election. Oddly enough, phrases used out of context can add a whole lot of fun to your ATC.




And two more...




The theme over at Wednesday Stamper is an open theme so I think maybe I'll offer these up as my submission.
