Our Art Swaps ATC Swap

Our Art Swaps, a fun group that I'm a member of,
is having an ATC swap this month.
Our theme is Christmas.
We were each assigned 2 people to send ATCs to,
I made 3 so I could send one to the gal who organized the swap.
I used the images
"Christmas Ball with Ribbon"  (#12702) from
Snowflakes, Happy Holiday sentiment and "bakers twine" are from
For each ATC, I stamped the Christmas Ball with Ribbon
image onto white card stock, the center part,
with the ribbon and pine bough
was colored with water color crayons. 
The "metal" braid was colored with Creative Memories pens.
 
For this first one, I covered the top and bottom areas of the ball with sticky powder and added micro beads.  The picture doesn't show the true color, but they are a darker green than they look in the picture.
For the snowflakes were heat embossed with white powder.
The Christmas Balls were fussy cut
 and adhered to each card with ATG tape.

This card was colored the same, but the top and bottom were covered with
liquid glue and glitter.
The Holiday Wishes was embossed with white powder.

This 3rd card was covered with glitter also, but a different color.
The lines along the edges are a "bakers twine" stamp from the
Holiday Delivery Stamp Set.
I'm really loving this set, so many fun things that can be done with it!
 
I really enjoyed making these ATCs,
it's been quite a while since I had done any
 and I'm so glad we decided to do this for our swap this month.
I hope the people who received them enjoy them too.
 
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you've been inspired in some way.
Leave a comment if you will and come again soon.
 
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
