Door, Arches, Openings ATC

 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:
 ATC with the "doors" open:

Comfort Quilts

More quilts for Comfort Quilts.  This rainbow quilt was made with lots of leftover bits!
Someone gave me this Hungry Caterpillar panel and some left over fabric. I added the green and rainbow fabric for a fun kid's quilt.

Starry Sky Background Card

Completely covered matte card stock with blue, red and purple Distress Ink, blending the edges.

 Next, covered it all with black Distress Ink and let it dry for a moment. Splattered water over the surface, and dabbed with a paper towel.

Splattered wet Perfect Pearls over the surface, then dried completely.
Stamped a saying with VersaMark Ink, covered with white embossing powder and heat set. Layered the stamped background on a blue card.
Made another one where I splattered more water on the background and splattered on some gold perfect pearls.

Black and White Card

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.
