Pen and Ink ATC

The theme for 9ATC is Pen and Ink. Since I can not draw, I decided to make a pen and ink background. Stamped the dove and "peace" with black India ink. Used a black ball point pen and ruler to draw diagonal lines. Used a silver metallic Gelly Roll pen to add dots and an eye to the dove.

Stitch ATC

 Theme for 9ATC Group is Stitch. Cut an old tablecloth and folded up the decorative border . Added a ribbon to the top and used a sewing machine to stitch up the sides.
Added some decorative lace to the top and bottom, and machine stitched in place.

Used a light brown embroidery floss to stitch on a button over the flower and to highlight the flower border. Also stitched some x's on the lower lace piece:

I added some green stitching with light brown French knots to complete the atc:

Collage ATC

The theme for the 9ATC Group is Collage. I gathered several pages of background I made in the past. On some of the blank purple ones I stamped assorted word images in black dye ink.
Used a floral die to cut out petal shapes from the purple papers. Punched a circle out of the dictionary background paper and inked the edges with black dye ink.
Used ATC cards that I had previously painted with orange, yellow and gold acrylic paints. Used a purchased floral embossed paper, along with black and white papers I had previously added gold inks. Tore these papers and adhered to the orange atcs. Colored the edge of the atc with black dye ink. Created a collage flower with the background papers. Covered the atc with clear tar gel and let dry. Added the word "bloom" with green Dyno tape.
