Hi Blog Friends. It been a few days but my get up and go got up and went. Despite the promising start to the year I was feeling a bit ship without a rudder, fish out of water, Jack without a box, that sort of thing. Now I'm back. The creative jam has been washed down the river and the tide of inspiration is in again. At least for a few hours.
There are undoubtedly a slew of ATC challenges I haven't found but there are two I have. Now when these came up I had to ask what's that stand for? and how big are they? I blame it on the cake. We had just got home from a fourth birthday party and I was pretty much caked up. Luckily a few people took pity on my incapacitated state and enlightened me. Thanks to those helpful few. For the unenlightened ATC is Artist Trading Card and they are 2.5" x 3.5". So here I am, an ATC virgin, embarking on my first attempt. The challenge to these seems to be the size,or lack there of. Most of my ideas were just too big. But they say small is beautiful. Here's hoping.....
The challenge over at Fun with ATC's is Celebration and they are pairing it up with a blog hop because it's their third birthday. Happy Birthday. Also Neet, hello Neet, over at Artful Times is looking for ATC's to do with time. I used Basic Grey paper to cut my ATC. The edges were gently coloured with Distress Ink Salty Ocean. The sentiment is a sticker from K&Company Dollhouse Stickers To Go which I mounted on a piece of card I painted with blue acrylic. The cakes are die cut from Sizzix sizzlit Cupcake and paper pieced. I mounted the front cake on sticky pads. I don't know if there are rules about getting dimensional on an ATC? The paper I used for the frosting is a handmade paper with mica. Glad the sparkles showed on the photo.
