Green ATCs




Well, I've taken a break from some bigger projects, to work on green ATCs. These can be completed quickly and one of the themes for the Byhand Artists monthly ATC swap is green, so some of these may make it in the mail for that swap. I have done several green themed ATCs and was having trouble coming up with fresh new ideas, but I think I may be on a roll now.
The first of this group is "Spring Beauty 1" which starts with a base of moss green cardstock. The image is mounted on gold paper and forms a pocket for the tag and the final touch is fibre with some green in it.
"Spring Beauty 2" starts with the same moss green cardstock and has some pewter transfer foil added. The image is added onto the background and the tag is torn and glued down. The same yarn that was used in the first ATC is used again for this one.
The last of this group is "True Friends 1" and starts with a dark green cardstock and I've added an image of 3 sweet little children. The overlay is stamped with a Quietfire Design rubber stamp in Timber Brown Stazon ink and is held in place with 4 brown brads.
