I've been making ATC's for years and never bore of them. I read in a magazine this month, can't remember which one or who was the author, that its surprising that ATC's are still in vogue after such a long stay in this crafting world of ours when things come and go so quickly... and I must say I totally agree - swaps are still rife in forums, mags and on line....long may they continue too.
Anyway, over at "The artists Trading Club" monthly themes are set, with fab guest designers, and I was invited to join a couple of months ago...the ATC's I've received are GORGEOUS! and so I'm now an avid par-taker in this swap!!
So, Novembers theme was keys:-
Here are my ATC's:-
All of the backgrounds were created using distress inks and then stamped with various Paperartsy stamps. The ones with purple clock faces - have had the wings hi-lighted with glossy acents, and then the image was stamped out onto acetate, and alcohol inks and blending solution dropped onto the back - when dry this was then cut out and adhered to the top of the stamped images.
The door locks are a paperartsy stamp which was stamped with stazon onto metal, embossed, filled, filed, stuck and sprayed with glimmer mist and then added with a metal key.
The edges of all were inked and then daubed with a gold dauber....
