ATCs


I received a wonderful rak last month from Cher on the AllThingsTim Yahoo group... an envelope full of lots of fun things to use in my art.   It was part of an ongoing RAK/PIF adventure on the group.  For those who might not know... RAK mean Random Act of Kindness and PIF mean Pay It Forward.  The idea is when you receive a rak/pif that you in turn rak 5 more people... no requirements, if you get something you do not have to continue if you choose not to... but I wanted to and have made these 5 atcs to send.  I'll be including some fun stuff with them and do hope they are enjoyed.

To make these atcs I started with Ranger's manila atc blanks and sprayed them with the new Color Wash sprays.  I used butterscotch, wild plum, and sailboat blue.  All stamps are Tim Holtz.  Stamped the black swirl along one side.  Coated each one with rock candy Distress Crackle paint.  After it was dry I stamped the weeds using gold Paint Dabber and also added gold on all the edges.  Stamped 5 tickets in black on manila cardstock, stamped the saying inside, cut them out, added distress ink, distressed the edges with Tim's edge distresser.  Embossed the foliage piece with Distress embossing powder.  Assembled everything as shown.
