A little demonstration on creating an ATC

watercolors paper cut to size 2-1/2" x 3-1/2"
Gesso both front and back to keep card from warping
Add your favorite color
I added a little gold over the yellow to give the card a little shimmer
Find a favorite stamp and paint it another color (I am using white)
Stamp onto your card to add a little background
It doesn't have to be perfect...Just have fun!
More stamping...This time with ink
Ready to add a little collage
The paper you see here is from Sweet Water Sisters Pantry
Outline and add color with markers
Using Art crayons add a border

Thanks for sharing!! I wasn't going to do this challenge because for some reason ATC's intimidate me. I decided I would. But so far everything I've made looks like crap!!! :)) I got a few new ideas though! Hopefully will post soon!!!! : )

That is the best, I had an ATC in my mind a few months ago, but it slipped away under all the boring work we do for money.
You have inspired me to create one again.
Thanks.
