Eat Drink and Be Merry ATC

 The theme for 9ATC Group is "Eat, Drink & Be Merry". I wanted a sparkly background, so I used two shades of yellow Distress Ink on card stock, sprayed a homemade yellow spray over the background, then sprinkled yellow/gold Perfect Pears overall, then cut into ATC sized pieces.

 Stamped "Hip Hip Hooray" and cocktail classes on the background with black India Ink. Used metallic gel pens to color in the glasses, add bubbles and highlight the words and glasses.

Added gold metallic ribbon and blue dotted ribbon tot he left side of the ATC:

Pastel Colours ATCs

The theme for 9ATC Group is Pastel Colours. I colored white card stock with a light pink Distress Ink and heat set. Then stamped a collage image on top with a light purple Distress Ink and heat set. Stamped the collage image again with the light purple Distress Ink on light blue card stock and cut out the bird image. Stamped a butterfly image on the same light blue paper with a light blue Distress Ink.

Adhered the collage image onto a light purple card, and added the butterfly and bird onto the collage image. Colored the butterfly with pink Distress Ink and small flowers with blue Distress Ink. Added highlights with glittery gel pens.

To finish the ATC, added the words "Fly High"
