The theme for the 9ATC Group is Door, Arches, Openings. I decided to make the Starry Sky Background for the inside of my ATC. Started by sponging on different blue and purple Distress inks with a dauber over matte card stock. Make sure the different colors show.
Next, completely cover the card with black Distress ink and let dry.
Splatter water over the card, let stand for a moment then daub with a paper towel.
Then splatter wet Perfect Pearls over the card and let dry completely. Okay to heat set.
Stamped a saying with VersaMark ink, covered with white embossing powder and het set.
For the cover, stamped a gated door image with black StazOn ink onto brown colored vellum and let dry. Cut in half and trimmed the image.
Attached the vellum to the ATC with gold colored staples and used a gold colored Pearl Pen to add "knobs" to the image. ATC with the "doors" closed:
Made some black and white Thank You cards. Layered black card stock over a white card. Cut out a smaller piece of white card stock and dry embossed in an embossing folder. Stamped "thank on a small piece of black card stock and embossed with white embossing powder and het set. Stamped "You" with black ink on white card stock, these were attached with a black and a white large brad.
