artsy atc

Hey bloggers!
Today I have an artsy atc to show you.
I haven't made one in awhile, so I thought I'd make one to fill another spot in my atc book.
I used more Prima and Tim Holtz goodness, that's all I reach for these days!
You would think designing an atc would be easier than a card, not so! It's just the same as designing a full size card and you have to use little stuff so its proportioned right.
But, I love looking through my atc book at the little works of art.
I purchased this box of watercolor paper cards sometime ago, I pulled them out so I could use my Distress Markers with the watercolor technique. I had to cut 1/4" off the end to make the 2.5 x 3.5" card. You can get pre-cut blank atc's at Inspiration Emporium.
I scribbled on the card with Distress Markers dried marigold, rusty hinge and worn lipstick. I used my water brush to blend the colors into each other. I dried that with my heat tool and then I stamped the card using my Prima Floral and Script background stamp with Archival Jet Black ink. I inked the edges of the atc with my jet black ink pad.
 
I used paper from the Prima Divine 6x6 paper pad and die cut the mini butterfly and ticket, I cut the banner from  a piece of the paper. The butterflies body is from Tim Holtz Label Letters stickers.
The metal embellishments are Prima Mechanical RosesMechanical Flowers small and Junkyard Findings clock parts.
The black tape measure is Tim Holtz Elements tissue tape.
I outlined the banner and ticket with my Faber-Castell black big brush pen and smudged the ink while it was still wet.
I made the atc holder from a wine cork and memo pin.

OK, that's it, I hope you enjoyed the atc.
