First ATC attempt!

I thought I'd share an ATC I made, because it's in a completely different style to the card I posted on Sunday. No Distress Inks, just bright zesty colours, Promarkers and a cute stamp set! ATCs are traditionally 2 and a half by 3 and a half inches, and ATC stands for Artist Trading Cards.

The little man and the sentiment are both from this stamp set. I love the oriental theme of the set! And the oriental garden scene is so fun to bring to life with Promarkers. For this ATC I stuck a border strip onto 2 and a half by 3 and a half inch white card stock. I stamped the man onto a different piece of white card stock and then coloured him with Promarkers. I cut around him and using double sided sellotape I glued him onto the ATC. I also glued a die cut heart onto the top so it just peeks over the edge. I used Dovecraft adhesive gemstones which can be found here, which I love because they come in strips of the same colour but you can cut them to use the gems individually. Here I used the green strip and in the space between the green gems I glued other gems. Finally I stamped the sentiment and used sticky foam squares to stick it so it overlapped the gemstones. I hope you like this ATC! They're really fun to make when you feel like crafting but you want to make something quick :)
