3 Bird ATCs

I almost always do cards, but couldn't resist the new TweetyJill publication Rubber Stamping Artist Trading Cards at Michael's yesterday, which got me wanting to make some ATCs. I've wanted the book since I saw that it was coming out and it does not disappoint!
Hope these ATCs don't disappoint you! LOL as you'll probably be seeing more ;o)

Each ATC measures 3 1/2" x 2 1/2"
STAMPS: all I Brake For Stamps except for the background with fleur-de-lis which is Whispers, and the birds on wire which is Inkadinkado. Spatter stamp is Annette Watkins.

INKS: Distress Antique Linen, Broken China, Aged Mahogany, Frayed Burlap and Staz-On Jet Black

SUPPLIES: raffia, Fastenator, white gel pen, black fine point marker, glue stick (Pritt), pop-dots and feather

PAPER: photocopied vintage dictionary page

NOTES: turqoise bkgd was stamped over white cs rubbed with Antique Linen, and then torn and adhered to bkgd paper ~ all cards were edged liberally with Antique Linen, and then lightly with Frayed Burlap direct from the pads ~ one bird on wire was pop-dotted and nest on same card was stamped seperately and then layered, outlining eggs with a white gel pen ~ solid bird was inked with Broken China, kissed with bkgd stamp to remove some ink in a pattern, then stamped, trimmed out, and edged lightly with the black pad


Found this cool old skirt hemming stick on a metal stand and decided to use it to display finished ATCs and cards
