Simon Says ATC

A very last minute entry into the Simon Says ATC/Tag Challenge. Sometimes I forget how fun it is to work on these little gems.

I haven't had much time to play with some of the new seasonal Distress Inks so I really wanted to use them on my ATC.  The background is done with Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean and I sprayed it with Perfect Pearls for a soft shimmer.

I took the leaf stamp and stamped it on the background in white and then stamped on top of but slightly askew with Evergreen Bough, this adds some depth and texture to the image. I stamped a PTI border on the bottom and added a sentiment on the side.

Since I was getting all inky I figured I would make two ATCs but I mounted this second one on a card front.

The difference on this ATC is that the leaf was stamped on top of the white image in gold ink instead of green. I used a Hero Arts border stamp on the bottom and added a punched border on the side. This was attached to a white card base that I sprayed and splashed with some Perfect Pearls in Perfect Gold, so very pretty.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Gorgeous ATC Sue! I love how the leaf almost looks fossilized...and beautiful color too. Thank you for joining us over on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog!
