My first three ATCs

My work usually has lots of detail, but I wanted to take part in the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge which this week asks for an ATC, so I decided to make a set of three.

"Set of three ATCs"

The background papers are all from Tim Holtz' Lost and Found paper pad, which conveniently has some patterns in the right size for this format, the embellishments (including the dress form) are almost all from shrink-plastic, some inked and some embossed with gold embossing powder. Each ATC also features a Tim Holtz adage ticket with some additions.

"HOPE the rain stops!"

You don't normally see Tim Holtz' umbrella man with his umbrella down :).

"TRUST your time will come"

For all the struggling artists out there!

"LOVE life"

That's my philosophy anyway :) Whatever you do today, find five minutes to enjoy.
