Christmas ATCs



Hi everyone. Have made some Christmas ATCs using a beautiful Madonna and baby stamp designed by Linda Luckin and available at the Artistic Stamper website. This is a beautiful stamp with brilliant detail and I decided to keep my atcs really simple. For the first atc coloured a piece of card with grey/blue colorbox inkpad then edged with expresso adirondack paint dabber. Coloured 2" piece of stampbord in same colour and then stamped on image in archival ink black inkpad. Added some ultra fine glitter in shades of blue, green and lemon to areas of the stamp. My scanner is not brilliant and the colours havent come out very well. Mounted the stamp board on black card and then on the background card. For the second ATC decided to pyramage the stamp. Stamped the image first on to pale blue background and edged with expresso paint dabber . Then stamped image twice on to matching cardstock. Trimmed the images slightly smaller than each other so when layed on the background image would create a pyramid effect. Layered on to background using silicone glue. Outlined with ultrafine glitter.
