MY FIRST ATC!



I have seen ATC's and I think they can be very pretty, I'm just not sure what to do with them. But I got invited to an Italian themed swap on SCS after I posted this card. So, I have a hard time saying NO, especially if somebody is telling me that I did a good job. It took me quite awhile to come up with what to do with this ATC. Since it is supposed to be Italian, this (provencal) was the only stamp that looks Italian. I finally decided to do a tile look. I cut a piece of confetti white into 2" x 2 1/2" and scored it at every 1/2". I inked the stamp with versamark and put it on the paper. As it is scored the scored lines do not get ink. I then did Poppin' Pastels on the image with my pastels. The cardstock I used to layer it are: Bravo Burgandy and Marigold Morning (I stocked up on some). I added some brads as an extra accent. Not quite sure about them. What do you think? Would you like this ACT?
