Happy Little Stampers January ATC Challenge

Hi everyone, I'm delighted to be part of the Happy Little Stampers design team for the ATC Challenge.  ATCs are fairly new for me and I'm looking forward to making more. Here are my vintage ones for the January challenge. 

I cut three ATC size mixed media paper pieces and put on a thin coating of white gesso. The backgrounds were made by painting on Infusions powder pigments mixed with water and light stamping of text in brown archival ink. I also used the brown archival to stamp the images and water-coloured them with the Infusions.

Looking forward to seeing your vintage ATCs and thank you for visiting my blog!


Here are the challenge rules for creating ATCs

• measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches (64 X 89 mm)
• be traded for other cards - not sold
• be flat enough to fit into a plastic trading card sleeve

• measure 2.5 inches in diameter using heavy cardstock
• be traded for other coins - not sold
• be flat enough to fit into a plastic trading card sleeve

Congratulations on the Designer spot of HLS ATC challenge, Sue!
All three are wonderful ATC cards! Your watercoloring on the gesso is beautiful and the brown archival ink is perfect for the vintage look!

What gorgeous ATC's Sue - love those vintage cups, they are so much more elegant than today's mugs, but less practical :)
congratulations on your DT spot

Your vintage ATC's turned out beautifully, Sue. I think ATC's are a great size for turning into cards later. Enjoy your gig. Hugs..Nancy

Good for you Sue being on the DT for Happy Little Stampers. ATC's are new to me as well but these are great vintage images. Reminds me of my grandma's dishes.
