Corrugated ATCs

I made these ATCs last month to take to an in-person swap.  The base for each one is thin corrugated cardboard with some of one side ripped off so you can see the corrugation...  I then spritzed each one with Ranger Color Wash spray, dried them and lightly brushed over some areas with White Paint Dabber and gave each one a spritz or 2 of Kiwi Perfect Pearls Mist... some of them I also edged with Gold Paint Dabber.



This first atc uses a part of an old mini calendar page, crinkled, colored and attached along the bottom.  The truck is an Art Part stamped with it's matching Studio 490 stamp...  stamped with Black Archival and colored with Distress Ink.  "Journey" is a Quietfire Design stamp... stamped with Black Archival onto a scrap of white cardstock colored with Distress Ink, attached using Tim's Tiny Attacher.  "dreams" is from Tim's Stuff To Say stamp.  White Enamel Accents make the white dots along the top and bottom.



Idea-ology film strip ribbon is attached over a piece of printed paper from Tim's crowded attic Paper Stash.  The butterfly is Tim's sizzix mini butterfly die cut from Clearly For Art... paint dabber brushed over the back, scratched some away and then painted over the back again with black Paint Dabber.... a little alcohol ink along the edges on the front for more detail... black sticky back gems along the body.  "embrace life" is also from Tim's Stuff To Say.  White dots made with Enamel Accents.  Black dots (under the word life) are also Enamel Accents.



Lady is an image from Dezinaworld off the sheet called Lilac & Lavender.  Bird is the mini Tim Holtz movers and shapers die cut from grunge.  The wing is 2 petals from a paper flower.  Leaves are a Sizzix die embossed with Tim's dot matrix folder and sprayed with Pertect Pearls Mist.  Tissue tape along the bottom behind the lady.  "timeless story" is again Tim's Stuff To Say.


The "Artful" piece is shrink plastic... a piece I did a long time ago... stamped the word and added the eyelets before shrinking the plastic.  Flower... bottom layer is grungepaper cut with Tim's Tattered Florals die, colored with Paint Dabbers, stamped with Studio 490 dot background using Archival Ink.  Next layer is screen also cut with Tim's Tattered Florals die.  Next layer is a metal twist on bottle cap cut down the sides where the seams are, spread out, colored with Alcohol Inks.  Next layer is again screen cut with Tim's die.  Center is an Idea-ology accoutrement.

My favorite is the Lady. What a nifty idea to make the bird's wings out of petals. You clever you!
