ATC - My First!

Honestly, I don't believe I have ever made an ATC and so Linda has taken me to a new adventure with this week's Grungy Monday!  Now of course it is all about Tim and his techniques and products, which is more than 50% of my craft everything.  Still in Valentine's Day mode and thinking about a little tiny space to work with, my thoughts went to my new love of shrink plastic!  Will be linking this up to Cindy Adkin's "Woman Thing Link Party" Make My Monday, "Romance,"  The Artistic Stamper, "Hearts" and Hel's Sunday Stamper, "Hearts."
Could Not Help Myself!
Cut my ATC from recycled cardboard (from sheets), painted it with Fired Brick Crackle and then inked with Fired Brick, shaded with black.  Also embossed with Tim's Damask folder.  Used Tim's new Valentine's Day release stamps, which were stamped on shrink plastic with Black Stazon.  On the reverse side, I colored in some red areas and this was then backed.  The tiny hearts in the jar were colored with red alcohol inks and shrunk.  The bingo 14 was clear embossed for a little more dimension.  Not sure if this will go on a tag, card or be hung.  Have to think about this one!  Well I did think and it became an ATC on a card! 

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

How fabulous to be kick starting your week with something new to you.
Cannot believe it is the first one you have made as it certainly doesn't look that way.

Totally awesome! I love the confetti bottled hearts you made. Very cool. The love collage you made and shrunk in the next post is great too! It really shrunk quite down. Maybe I missed it, but do you shrink yours with a heat gun, toaster oven, or something else? I've got start shrinking! LoL
