More ATC's


The background for these was made by applying Distress inks directly to a plastic surface such as a transparency, plastic wrap, etc. Then mist it with water. Take your ATC card and pick up the distress ink directly onto your paper. You can let it dry or heat dry and then do it again adding another color. I then added some distress ink around the edges of the cards as well.


I found the print for "There's two sides to every story" and "I was in one of my moods" in a book I found
at the bargain book shop called
"Every Excuse in the Book." For $1
I'll have all the excuses I'll ever
need!

The possibilities there are endless using it for ATC's.

Had fun making these!
