Vintage Valentine ATC


Hello friends,
my first project of 2012 it's an ATC (Artist Trading Card)
What are ATC one may ask? Here's the perfect visual explanation of such, compliments of SCS
aka  Split Coast Stampers :
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/artist_trading_cards_atc/

Here's a close up....

Specifically,  the theme for these cards was Vintage Valentines.....
Yikess!!...I sure got a bit intimidated by the whole thing as I don't do ATC well...
I believe this is only ,perhaps, my third ATC I ever made as I definetly much prefer
working on  regular size cards , if not larger ones  even....
Having said that, I hope that the wonderful and witty swap hostess whose swap I joined,
likes the end results , as well as the swappers who,ultimatly will end up receiving these.

 

Not sure why in the 'group photos' the lil heart brad appears black...they are certainly not black, although I did smear a bit of black Staz-On on them, to make the brads less shiny and appear more vintage, and it worked well. Unfortunatly though, my pictures turned out not as well as I hoped, this time around...arghhhhh me...  :o(
 Please let me know what YOU think...YOUR comments are ALWAYS apreciated! :o)

♥ G'NIGHT and Special Blessings to you!!! ♥
