I spent a good chunk of last night looking through old craft stamper magazines and it's sparked my creativity. I wanted to share this ATC I have made, it's part of my project for the "Scrappers Delight August Swap " and the theme is "Fairytales". Well I'm not sure I would quite class "Alice In Wonderland" as your classic fairytale as Lewis Carol is a bit dark in places, especially Alice Through The Looking Glass, but I've loved the books since I was a small girl and decided to give my "Leanne Ellis" stamps another inking.
ATC's are also great for using up scraps of card and paper too. I used ivory card and layered it with "Prima Botanical's Papers". I chose this paper as it has fleur di lys on the pattern (always regal to me) and the cogs and gears which I thought were apt for the "White Rabbit". I distressed the card with my sandstone and caramel promarkers.
I stamped the "White Rabbit" onto a page from an old book. (Now I love my books and I'm so grateful to my parents for encouraging me to read as a child and buying me books to feed my appetite for reading and pure escapism and was always taught to respect my books, don't fold down the pages, don't deface them, don't break the spine etc etc lol. BUT...I've just replaced two well read and completely dogeared classics in my collection and as I couldn't take them to the Charity shop due to the loose pages I decided to recycle). I coloured in his bow with my Poppy Red (but the crackle glaze has turned it bright orange) promarker and his clock with my Gold Promarker. I then distressed him with crackle glaze. The letters are hand written and have also been distressed with promarkers and crackle glaze.
I added some gold card to the back of the ATC which had been embossed with my Argyle embossing folder, and to this I added the details for the ATC.
Anyway sorry for waffling on lol.
Off to do some more work on my project.
I am entering my ATC into the following;
Jules Crafty Snippets - #31
Charisma Cardz Challenge - #32 Distressing (distressed with ink and crackle glaze).
