Hey crafty people, I thought today I would share some ATCs that I made for a swap last month as my partner has received them now! This swap was through a facebook group of lovely people and the theme was to make 5 double sided ATCs that had opposites on each side. So here’s what I came up with….
The “sweet” side background was created with distress inks and heat embossed sweety stamps. I used pixie powders to create the background for the “sour” side and I added glossy accents to the lemons.
The hot background is a napkin which stuck to the card with modge podge and again I used pixie powders on the “cold” background (I’m addicted to those powders!)
I used a stencil for the “light” background with some spiced marmalade distress oxide ink. The “dark” side was so easy peasy but I love all those googly eyes staring out!
This was a bit of a cheat really, just die cuts and patterned paper but I quite liked the effect.
More distress oxides for these backgrounds and a some ranger silver spray for the stars.
What do you think? Do you do any crafty swaps? I love seeing how people interpret the themes differently and use techniques that I haven’t tried or thought of. I’d love to hear what you think in the comments.
