Wearable ATC

THANK YOU TO LINDA for a fabulous mail day. A couple of weeks ago, some of the Aussies got together for a class with Linda . She taught: wearable ATCs. Linda offered to make up some packets of supplies for those who didn't have the items on the clas list, then generously offered to send packets to some of us OS (overseas) gals who wouldn't be able to attend. This way, we could take part in the class at out leisure. My packet came today and I was astounded by all the lovely papers and embellishments, enough to complete the project and more. To see the instructions by Linda go here.
I haven't found a white ink pad, that gives an intense white image to my liking, yet. So I sponged this paint onto my text stamp and then stamped it on to the black card stock and heat set.
Embossed an intricate design onto one half with gold detail embossing powder and heat set.
Tore off some of the text paper included in the packet, along with some decorative paper scraps I had laying around, and colored the edges by sponging on purple Distress ink and glued them onto the card stock.
I covered up the image a bit (I'm a very modest dresser, and if I'm going to "wear" my ATC, she needs to be modest also, LOL). I colored on a dress with a blue marker and stamped on a pattern, embossed with black detail embossing powder and heat set. Reminds me of some of the costumes seen on "Dancing with the Starts". Colored the edges of the image with a black marking pen.
Glued the woman to the ATC, added the crown embellishment. Colored the wings and German scrap with black Archival ink, and rubbed some of the ink off to give it a distressed look. Cut out some words, provided by Linda, and colored the edges with blue ink. Glued on some small lavender rhinestones. Added the hanging "thingy" with the decorative brad. Last attached plain card stock to back to cover back of brad.
Thanks again Linda, for giving me a fun play session even when I live so far away!!!

Great job Carol. The German Scraps definitely make the ATC as it adds so much dimension. Now I am sorry I didn't ask Linda for a kit!! LOL

Wow!! Carol, this is gorgeous! I love the way she turned out - very glam! Do I take it that this ATC can be worn as a pendant?

Carol said...

Yes this can be worn as a pendant or on a chain as a necklace! Lots of fun possibilities!!!
