First of all, I took an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of glossy white paper that someone saved for me at work (my friends are learning to throw NOTHING away - unless they want me to ask them if they are perhaps smoking crack when they throw away a postcard that came in the mail or well anything - I recycle as much as I can!) and I did an alcohol ink background with the adirondack line from Ranger. This is so awesome!!!! Then I cut the paper into 2" x 3" rectangles and adhered them to my ATC blanks.
Cool, huh? I really enjoyed the process! Then I just made my ATCs - here they are, all traded except for one!
This really was so much fun and two people I traded with twice! Since this was my first time participating, I was amazed at how open people are to trading! There is another one next weekend, again, it starts Friday night at 5:00 pm and ends Sunday night at 11:59 p.m. in whatever time zone you reside. I am so going to be prepared this time, with plenty of backgrounds already made. I think the only rule in this CAT is that there should be some kind of collaged image on your ATC. I am so down with that - I love collage! By the way, the vintage images are all from vintage sewing patterns - aren't they a hoot?
I hope to see some of you there this weekend - trust you won't regret it, except the lack of sleep - Friday night I was up till 4:30 a.m. I was so excited and having so much fun. Since I'm not a good sleeper anyway, it was okay - I was up at 6:30 because I had a church meeting at 9:00 and well you know the rest regarding MW. Blush.
Peace out! Cheeka
