Hero Arts Freindship ATC

Originally uploaded by newkidfish (Cathy A)
A few weeks ago Shari Carroll from Hero Arts invited us hostesses to make an ATC based on freindship for her blog week,I sent her a 'rough mock up' - this was it!!! How shocked was I when she said she was using that one for the blog. Well here it is...I used shabby shutters, peeled paint and broken china to create the background, I then second generation stamped the harlequin background on the right side of the ATC in broken china and then the long writing on the other side in shabby shutters. I used peeled paint for the pop stems and added mint green pearls and stickle. (a quick tip, to get the liquid pearls rounded rather than pointy flick the bottom side of your card when it is wet). Sadly my pearls look a bit odd because I dropped the ATC whilst they were still wet!!! Hero Arts are hosting their first ATC swap today, so do hop on over to their blog and sign up for the fun.

Hi, Cathy! May I just say that this ATC is positively STUNNING?!! I am in awe of your creativity in using the Liquid Pearls to accent the Pop Stems stamp. I will likely be stealing that idea ... hope you don't mind! ;-)

Love your AMAZING card as it was the first to be showcased on the blog ( I know it's alphabetical, but still you deserved to be the first...)! And what a stunner! Cathy, you are so modest with your talent. This card is a great example of your style -sutble yet beautiful!!
