My local ATC (Artist Trading Card) Club theme for April is “Spring in Paris”. I was able to play around with some very cool digital collage sheets and came up with the design below. The collage sheet was copied onto a transparency then cut down to fit onto the punched edge ATC background. The base paper was distressed with Vintage Photo ink to give it a nice weathered look. Some of the design detail was traced on the back of the transparency with Crystal Lacquer then sprinkled with glitter. When viewed from the front, it gives a nice but subtle shimmer. Add a faux postage stamp and fiber and voila! C’est finis!

Whether you believe it or not, Spring is coming! We set our clocks ahead this past weekend so we’ll be having daylight much later than we used to. Granted, we’ll be driving to work in the dark, but at least we’ll have sunshine when we leave work.

Here’s another digital stamp from The Stamping Boutique called Audrey in the rain. I used the glittered acetate technique that were on a couple cards of late. Hope you like it!

Check out the new challenge posted on the TSB Blog!
