Art Pieces ATC Challenge

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

This is my first ATC, and I had fun making it. Thanks for giving out this challenge!

I used a blank ATC by Strathmore and applied Adirondack alcohol ink “stream” for the background. I embossed the bottom circle swirls with an emboss tool from EK Success. I highlighted the embossing with Decorating Chalk from Craf-T Products. The fish were from some tissue paper scraps I had and the glitters were champagne and diamond Stickles from Ranger.

Tag You're It Challenge Tag

Here is my tag for the Cute and Cuddly Challenge from Tag You’re It. Thank you for stopping in to look.

In doing this tag, I realized I only have holiday words on stamps and none seem to fit either in context or size. So I have something else to shop for when I go to the city next time. I felt like some text was needed to fill some of the space, but opted for the little ribbon, instead.

The materials I used:
Susan Branch Color Brushes from All Night Media
Shy Hedgehog stamp from Penny Black
Flower Hearts paper from Creating Keepsakes
Sepia Archival Ink from Ranger
Fibers and ribbons from ????

The under tag of cream cardstock seemed too bland so I tried Adirondack Alcohol Inks in Wild Plum, Stream, and Butterscotch along with the blending solution on acetate and used that as an overlay on the cardstock.
