Pretty In Pink ATCs

Hi everyone,
Hope your weekend was great and the week is staring off nicely.  We are enjoying the most wonderful Indian summer weather here in Michigan.  Absolutely beautiful.   Today, I have two ATCs for you.  I made them with a stamp from Blockheads Stamps.  It is a dress form in the Vintage Travel Set.

Materials List:
Dress Form Stamp: Blockheads Rubber Stamps
Canvas Paper
Black Acrylic Paint
Pigment inks: Yellow and Black
Embossing Powders: Yellow and Black
Twinkling H2O's
CS: Magenta, Yellow, Black
Magenta Marker

For the base of the ATCs, I used some canvas paper.  I was fooling around with it one day and decided to see if I could come up with something interesting by painting on the canvas paper.  I used black paint and just brushed on the paint in diagonal lines.

I cut the canvas paper to the right size for an ATC and Stamped and embossed the Dress Form image.   I added some pink Twinkling H2O's and some streaks using the magenta marker.

I added laces, twine,and some shells to finish off the ATC.  The second ATC was made in the same way, except that I varied the ink color and used different embellishments.

To make the ribbon embellishment, I ran a line of Fabri-Tac glue down the side of the card and pleated the ribbon and pressed it into the glue.  I trimmed the end when all the pleating was done.

Have a great day!  Love ya.
