I hope everyone enjoyed a lovely Father's Day yesterday!!

Today, I have some ATC's I made for Altered Arts Magazine.  I made them using many sponsor products that I received when I started working for them.  It is a set of 5 (sort of) that I call "License  Plates".  They use two different types of ATC's.  3 of them are on glossy blanks that I bought from Altered Arts Magazine years ago, and the other 2 are thick blanks.  The thick cards are painted with Yasutomo "Niji" Pearlescent watercolor paints I got from Altered Pages and in the other 3 glossy cards I used Ranger Alcohol Inks.
After I painted/inked the backgrounds I started layering my elements!  The next layer was a Hero Arts background stamp called "Italian Poetry", then I used 7 Gypsies paper tape and clear stamp set "Numero".  The ink I used is from Prima.  I didn't know they made ink, but they are so awesome!  They are a chalk based fluid ink, and it dries quickly.  Even over the alcohol inks.  Then, I cut the license plates out of a piece of paper I got in an ephemera pack.  I think it might be Tim Holtz?  After I cut them individually, I applied them with glue.  Last, I die cut some flowers, crumpled them up and glued them to the bottom.  The pearl in the center is like the icing on the cake!!

I know I owe some of you an ATC, and I will be using these to send you so watch your mail!!

Have an awesome day!!
