Hello everyone! Today is Thursday and that means it's time for a new challenge over on the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog. Our challenge this week is to make an ATC (Artist Trading Card). The only "rule" for an ATC is the size, which is 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches.
I have to tell you this is the first ATC I have ever made. I usually make larger cards so working on something this small was no easy task for me. I used Meljen's Designs' Noah's Ark, Noah's Loving Elephants, and Noah's Loving Lions on my ATC. Given the size of this ATC, you can image how small those elephants and lions are. Wow, I thought I was going to go blind trying to color and then cut out those tiny babies lol! Anyway, I colored my images with copics and colored pencils and cut everything out. I die cut a scalloped oval nestie and stippled along the top of it to make my clouds. Then it was simply a matter of layering all my images. No frills, stickles, ribbon, lace or Glamour Dust ... do you know how hard this was for me?
Whimsy Stamps. Don't forget to stop by the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog to see what the rest of the talented DT have created and I hope you find the time to join in our challenge this week.
