Mixed Media ATC – Thank You


Hi Artsy Friends,

Time flies. It’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) ATC (Artist Trading Card/Coin) Challenge again. The November Challenge Theme is Die Cuts.

  
It’s super easy, right? I can’t wait to see what you’ve come up with. For Challenge Rules and other DTs’ inspirations, please check out the Challenge Blog.

ATC Details
1. I cheated, I confess. I picked a mixed media background panel that I made before here and cut into ATC size.
2. Die cut Flickering Butterflies (Simon Says Stamp) from the MM ATC panel.
3. Stamp French Script background (Stampin’ Up).
4. Apply Distress Paste over stencils (Tim Holtz and TCW) on ATC panel.
5. Stamp Thank You text (Altenew) and heat embossed in black.
6. Mount the ATC panel to a black panel. Voila!

I like what I made very much. Hope you like it too. Thanks so much for stopping by and wish you a great day ahead.

I’m thrilled that this set of ATCs was chosen as Designer Spotlight by Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, with the following comments:

I adore these colorful ATCs from Helen! The layered backgrounds are beautiful and I really love the complementary colors of the leaves and the inspiring messages.

Thanks so much, Cheiron Brandon. You made my day!

       I was inspired by the Color Scheme as well as the water splashes/droplets.
      
    My take is Bling, Die Cut and Ink.
         
     
        I like to play with mixed media and layers while allowing some white space so that my eyes won’t feel too busy with overlapping colors. Maybe it could be called as Mixed Media CAS. Ha!
