This is a bit of a change for me. I've never been particularly fond of making ATCs (Artist Trading Cards.) In fact, I really didn't enjoy them at all. However I guess you really can teach an old dog new tricks because recently I've found that these little ATCs are a lot of fun to make and trade.
These Pumpkin Patch ATCs are made for an ATC swap I'm participating in at The Stamp Shack. The theme for the swap is "Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere". I'm eager to exchange these with the other swap participants to see the variety of ATCs following the theme.
Now, you ask, how did I make these so sparkle-y? For these I used a pumpkin brass stencil, sticky paper and ultrafine glitter. This is a technique and product I bought last fall when I was at a stamp show in Fort Wayne, IN. It is a super fun way to use some of those brass stencils you have kicking around.
I'm still a card maker at heart, but for the purpose of swapping and getting new ideas for card making techniques, I think I'll be participating in more ATC swaps.
