Artist Trading Cards with Carnival Girl Stamp

Hi Dreamers,
Really hot here today in Michigan.  90's today!  Too hot to be outside.  I stayed in and stamped some fun ATC's (Artist Trading Cards- 2.5 x 3.5")  I used one of my favorite stamps from Blockheads-Carnival Girl.   This stamp and all other items are now 75% off  on the Blockheads Web Store!  (No coupon needed) You could picked up this stamp for $1!   Take a look at my ATC's.

I made the backgrounds by placing inks, spray inks, and stains on a craft sheet.  Add a few drops of water and press the CS into the inks.   Let dry and trim to size.   Stamp Carnival Girl with Archival inks.

I added lots of fibers and ribbons to my little cards.  The cards are so small, I was able to use ribbons from my scrap bag.    I will put my contact info on the backs of the cards and use as a business card.

**********A few fun Challenges for my Carnival Girl ATC's:
Fun with ATC's: Set of 3
365 Cards: set of 3
Brown Sugar: anything goes
Crafts 4 eternity: use paint or ink
Creative Fingers: anything goes
Inspire Me Fridays: anything

That's it for me today.  I will pop back in on Saturday with  a card to share!  Have a great weekend.  Love ya.
