Colour Challenge ATCs for OCC

I made the challenge this week a very different one! You have make an ATC using white or cream + black or chocolate + kraft + one other colour of your choice. I find it very freeing to create on such a small palette. You can try new techniques especially without worrying about ruining lots of paper!

colour challenge ATC for OCC

I got a bit carried away and ended up making 4! All with different colours. This one may end up being the cover on a mini book. I hope to fit it in the envelope shown behind.

This one is actually a mini card with a pull out tag. I was cutting out flowers, trying out a new flower making tutorial , when I saw how pretty the remaining paper was and duplicated it on a smaller scale for this ATC.

I used the Wrinkle Free Distress Technique for this one plus lots of stamped layers that overlap.

This one uses embossed resist and sponging. I sponged the edges with spun sugar then clear embossed the script. Then I continued to sponge more spun sugar and some worn lipstick. Then I stamped the flourish over top with worn lipstick. The flower is just layers of scalloped cut vintage music paper, 4 large, 3 medium and 4 small. I wet them, scrunch them and dry them with the heat gun. Then I smoothed them out slightly and attached them with a kraft coloured brad.

If you are interested in trading ATCs, I found a great place, Swap-Bot. It is one of the easiest, safest trading sites around. I say safest because there is a really good rating system that helps weed out people who don’t send what they promise to send.

Enjoy, Rebecca

These are beautiful - I think the first one is my favorite! I love the feminine, vintage, romantic style of it, and the embellishments are just so pretty!

These are all just wonderful, Rebecca. My favorite is the first one too but I really like the grungy one with the car too. I just love the silky brown ribbon you used on the first one! This was such a fun challenge. Thanks for hosting two weeks of such fresh and imaginative challenges!
