Mixed set of ATCs

All of my ATCs reached the intended recipients on the same day!

What are the odds of that! ^__^

So, without further ado, here are the pics :

ATC #1

This is made using my current favorite mini stamp by Peek-a-boo Designs, called Pixie Dust. 100% made of Photopolymer and priced at a mere Rs. 100/-, this stamp is a great buy and a must have in your stamp arsenal!

I stenciled the background using distress inks (Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn and Black Soot) with my TCW - Texturized stencil.

Stamped sentiment and colored the little hearts using my Sakura pen in neon green.

Glittered up the word Love in black glitter. (Did the three tiny dots next to the word in black glitter too!)

Used two different washi tapes for some added texture and interest.

Added a tiny butterfly and some glitter along the edges and matted it onto black cardstock.

Here's ATC #2

I stenciled the background with a Kaisercraft Quarters stencil using Mowed Lawn and Mustard Seed.

Added a ribbon that co-ordinated with the colors and adhered some golden sequins.

Topped it with a sentiment from a set of sentiment cards I received with my Papericious Planner - Color Splash.
I used some in my planner and some I saved for cards and small projects, they are in such happy colors and so uplifting, I absolutely love using them!

The tiny heart below the sentiment is from a sticker packet bought locally.

Finally, I added glossy accents + a sprinkling of glitter to the sentiment, the tiny heart and a few areas of the stenciled portion.

And these are ATC #3 (Blue) & ATC #4 (Pink-Purple)

ATC #3

I used the Tim Holtz - Scribbles stencil with Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers for this one.

Added glitter to select areas and adhered some heart stickers and sequins.

Sentiment is from Peek-a-boo Designs - Bold Hugs N' Love set in black glitter.

The strip at the bottom is stenciled using Hero Arts - Stylish Borders stencil.

And to finish this piece, I added a thin ribbon in peacock blue color tied up into a pretty bow!

ATC #4

This ATC is based on my earlier design where I made a batch of ATCs for an overseas  swap, the only minor differences are :

1. This one is bigger than the ones I sent overseas. (The ones I sent overseas were 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches.)

2. It does not have sequins added to it but the sentiment 'Be' is coated in black glitter.

Stamps are by : So Suzy Stamps - Tulip Stem and, Simon Says Stamp - Be.

So, that's that. Which one is your favorite? I'd love to know!

Till next time dear friends! *Big Panda Hugs*
