ATC into a Card

This month [like them all] is flying by.  That said, I took some time to play in a couple of my favorite challenges;  ATC Around the World #103- Anything Goes, and new on my fav list, Creative Artiste Mixed Media #104 - Anything Goes.

I started with the ATC.

When I was in Vegas, I saw a photo that inspired me to make the background of this ATC; many layers using different papers from my stash; self made tissue paper, water colored paper, some page scrap.  I wanted a sentiment, so I went digging and found my STAMPlorations Anywhere There's Coffee stamp set

Since the cup is also in this set, I stamped and cut it out on vellum so the sentiment would show through.


I also wanted to join in over at the Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge so, I am using the same ATC, only I put it on a card base.  For added fun, I used an embossing folder for some texture, another panel with some self made tissue paper and [my favorite part] I added 2 staples.  I don't know why, but staples on a card - yes please! 😀

 Thanks Challenges!  I had a great time 😁

Thanks for stopping by~

Wonderful composition, Vicki, and I love all the elements and colors in here!! Very creative of you to add a sentiment behind the vellum. As for the staples on the card--yes, there's just something about them that catches your eye, isn't there? :-) Thank you so much for sharing this with us on our 'Anything Mixed Media Goes' challenge at Creative Artiste! xo

LOVE the ATC and how you turned it into a card. The splash of orange contrasts so well with the darker colours. Xxx
