ATCs Week 1

There's a twist on this month's Swirlydoos Round Robin. Kim has declared this to be a Not So Round Robin featuring ATCs. The other twist is that there is a different category each week and we can create and post any week or every week, whatever we choose.

I don't know why, but I haven't made an ATC (Artist Trading Card) in a long time. I started working on them when I was still fairly new to scrapping as a way to learn to create a design on a very small space and I fell in love with the idea of playing with only a few elements and saying "done".

This week, the category is "Vintage".
I've used scraps from previous kits - papers from Prima's Tales of You and Me and Vintage Emporium  - and odds and ends from my embellishments.

My first design features a pretty kitty that I found on Pinterest, some Finn stars, a bit of Dresden trim and images from a Finn stamp set.

Next is a lovely lady from a Gecko Galz download, doesn't she look just like a Countess? All she needs is a strip of bling and a mini rose to complete her bored existence. Maybe someone will take up her offer and put a smile on her face!

My third design was so easy. I wanted to use this word strip from one of the Vintage Emporium scraps and this image certainly fits the bill. A scrap of lace, a bit of flower and a large bit of Bo Bunny bling and I was done.

This was one of four vintage advertising images from Pinterest. I choose "Sweety Pie" because I couldn't resist using this mouse that was part of the kitty set. I selected a couple of pieces of Vintage Emporium ephemera as embellishments and added Prima Microbeads to create a bit of interest.

 Thanks so much for stopping by for a look...
