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"

60's ATC

The theme for 9ATC Group is 60's. For my ATC, I used a stencil over the card stock and pressed down a VersaMark ink pad over all and let it dry. Next brayered on ink from a Kaleidacolor ink pad and let dry. 

Used black ink to stamp on hearts, peace symbols and the words peace, love, freedom.
Then used a white gel pen to add highlights to some of the stenciled flowers.

To finish this ATC, added a pink rhinestone heart, the wrote the words FLOWER POWER in one of the flowers and outlined it in black.

Background card

 For stamp club we were to make backgrounds. I decided to make a simple, subtle sparkle background. Stamped a flourish image on pink card stock and brushed on a darker pink Perfect Pearl powder over the still wet ink (I used Sparkle Raspberry).

Layered this background onto white card stock. Stamped a saying in the same shade of pink as the paper on white card stock and added it over the background along with a heart cut out of the same background paper and layered on a white paper heart:

Black and White Card

For stamp club, we were to make either mono print or black & white cards. I choose to do black and white. I layered black card stock over a white card and added a black and white print paper on the top and a black with white polka dot ribbon about 3/4 of the way down. Then stamped a sympathy saying in black ink on the bottom and added a black and white die cut butterfly image. I used two similar printed papers to make two different cards:

Shimmer ATC

This month the theme for 9ATC Group is "Shimmer". I started with a Metallic Marker Background. Then embossed a reed image with an embossing folder and colored the raised areas with a green metallic paint, and used the purple metallic paint to color the edges.
 Used Fantasy Film to create dragonfly embellishment. Layered 3 pieces of Fantasy film over a rubber stamp that had been inked with purple StazOn ink, then placed parchment paper on top and heated with a hot dry iron. Then cut out the image and curled the ends of the wings up.

Added the dragonfly embellishment to the ATC with small rhinestones for yes, also added some rhinestones to the upper left corner.

The theme for 9ATC Group is "Joy".  I decided to make a blue torn paper background. Took out a bunch of previously made blue backgrounds to choose from.

 Picked 7 different blue backgrounds and tore them into thin strips and adhered them to card stock.
 Colored the edges with midnight blue StazOn ink, and also highlighted the raised areas of the embossed paper on the right side.

Used a stencil to create a yellow on yellow swirl design for my sun element.
Adhered the torn sun onto the bottom of the atc and added a butterfly embellishment:
