Hey Everyone... Today I wanted to share some ATC's I made recently for the swap.... these were all made a bit at a time over the last couple weeks because of our crazy work schedule. I didn't make as many as I had hoped but at least I got to squeeze some art time in here and there :)
The first one was so much fun...it's a Club Scrap stamp from the last kit - Cinema. I KNEW when I saw it I had to make an ATC with it...of course I had to test the Bubble Wrap just to make sure it was going to work for the ATC's - LOL!!! It did - you know it's such a great stress reliever ;) LOL!!
I'm Ready for My Close-Up is also another product of August's Club Scrap Kit. The sentiment and movie star (in the background) were stamps also included in the Cinema kit. Marilyn herself is a stamp from Deep Red Stamps. They have several realistic movie star stamps...Marilyn, Charlie Chaplin, James Dean, Audrey Hepburn, John Wayne, etc. I belive there are others but I can't remember who they are at the moment. She's colored with Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils.
Bite Me is a fun combination of collage images from Altered Pages (Dracula & Skull), a piece of movie trailer film from "The Rite" (a scary movie w/Anthony Hopkins) and a background made using my spooky Memory Box Distressed Web stencil. These are the backs of game board ATC's. Some were black and others were red or maroon which is why some of the webs are in black and others are in white ink (Hero Arts).
Warning...not for the faint of heart....
Your Opinion ATC was made on one of those days....I'm sure we've all had 'em...a day when everyone was out to step on the last nerve you had left for the day... This is one of the quotes from my Smart Ass Remarks & Bitch Comments list. I knew I wanted to use this lady (collage image from Altered Pages) because she looked like she was in control and not taking crap from anyone but just needed a sentiment to go with her. I was reading through the list and it was like...yep, that's the one - LOL!! The background for the card is actually a vintage Bingo card that was painted with the Gelli Plate and the Corset ad is also from Altered Pages.
I do have an update on the swap (both charm and ATC). I heard from the last person I was waiting on and she won't be able to make the swap so I am going to start swapping them out tonite if possible. I am hoping to have them all sorted, packaged and re-mailed by this weekend. I may get a chance to do it sooner if we don't get a new order this week. I'll have to play it by ear but will definitely let you know how things are going.
