Lindsay Mason ATC swap (For ATC’S sake… 61, 62 and 63)

Hi

Tonight I should have been hosting Gelli plate play but having come home with a terrible headache I am instead about to get into a lovely bath and then have an early night.  So instead of sharing that I am instead sharing three ATC’S I made a few weeks ago for Lindsay Mason’s ATC swap in January.  

The swap theme is a memorable movie quote. I couldn’t get the “you had me at hello” from jerry maguire so decided to create three love themed ATC’S that are similar but not the same. 

My starting point was this piece of cardstock I had been using as my scratch paper for another couple of projects. 

I love the way that the cardstock transforms and the colours work so well together. 

So I chose three parts of the cardstock and cut out the necessary 2.5 x 3.5 atcs and started adding pattern and texture.  I started with some foiling and drawing little hearts all over the cards I then added some texture stamps and inked the edges.

Now to chose the focal image.  I decided to use my favourite Darcy heart stamps. I coloured each of them differently using distress stains.

I added some layers of muslin and glass bead gel before adding the hearts and letting it dry. 

Next it was time to add the quote… and add a little bit of doodling etc.  

Love how these all came out. Hopefully the recipients also like them too! I got a fab selection in response. 

As this project features hearts… I am entering it into the Wicked Wednesday challenge.

Happy crafting!

Catherine
