Traveller ATC


Saturday evening, home alone and nothing to watch on the television so it was a treat to take my glass of wine up to the craft room, grab a few supplies and just create for the fun of it!


I made a few ATC backgrounds experimenting with colours and gesso and loved this one using Broken China, Faded Jeans and Frayed Burlap distress inks, so decided to take it further with some crackle paste, tissue tape and stamping. A great Saturday evening!

My husband likes no fuss, non birthday cards, so this ATC is destined for a plain white 6 x 6 card for his birthday next month. 

I would like to enter my ATC into two current challenges:

Stamps and Stencils : Small is Beautiful
Anything But Cute : Make It Masculine

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

What an amazing ATC Jennie! I love the blue background, the combo with the blacks and white highlighting is so perfect for a masculine project! Love the touch of crackle in the background and the clock hand adds just a little extra masculine flair!
