Another ATC ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  Along with my tags I have also had a blast creating yesterdays and today’s Artist Trading Cards.  It has been a while since I made one and even longer since I made one and then wanted to create a second one lol!  So here it is …

I wanted to create something a little more substantial but still ATC size
Not quite sure how but I have managed to chop the end of the photo - apologies!

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Country View Crafts Challenge Make Your Own Background

This one took a bit more work and some huffing and puffing and snippet hunting, lol, and the amount of different mediums, oh my I could be typing those up for hours!  Suffice it to say here that many different mediums were used and I hope I have remembered them all below!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon  ttfn Karen x

Absolutely brilliant ATC . . . love how you've made a surprise inside. I never think to make a dimensional ATC . . . just straightforward playing card shaped ones. Thanks for the inspiration.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
