Aboriginal Style ATC

 The theme in the 9ATC Group is Aboriginal Style Art. I rubbed a blue Distress Ink (DTP) over manila card stock and then stamped a solid frog image with red Archival Ink.
 Used black Sharpies, 2 different white pens and a purple metallic gel pen to add doodles and dots.

 I continued adding more dots until the background was full.

Shrine ATC

 The theme for 9ATC Group is Shrine.
I embossed an arch image with detail gold embossing powder on a bronze metallic sheet of card stock and heat set.
 Made a background of blue mica dust splattered onto black card stock and cut out 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" backgrounds.
I found a madonna with child image on the internet and altered it a bit and added some details with a gold metallic pen. Layered the image onto the embossed arch image. Cut out the outline of the arch from other pre-embossed set and layered it over the other arch to give a slight depth. Layered all of this onto the mica splattered card stock. Punched out 3 candle images and added gold metallic ink to the flames. Added some paper flowers with gold from a pearl pen to the centers.
