PaperArtsy ATC - affirmation card

The ATC is a quite small thing :-) But we know that "Small is Beautiful" (from E.F. Schumacher) and I really wanted to join the ATC challenge of the PaperArtsy so I used the dimensions of the ATC to make the best I can do. 

For having the exact size I cut out my ATC shape from chipboard with Tim Holtz ATC die.

What I used:

Sizzix Bigz Die, ATC&Corners by Tim Holtz (657184)

PaperArtsy stamp set, Eclectica by Emma Godfrey EEG24 (FLY)

PaperArtsy stamp set, Eclectica by Emma Godfrey EEG18 (DREAM)

sheet music

Copic Sketch markers (for the dragonfly)

DecoArt crackle paste


white, blue acrylic paint

Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink 

Ranger clear embossing powder

I use this ATC as an affirmation card, so I stamped another positive affirmation from the Fly set on the back with some butterflies.

I punched a hole in the left top corner so I can bind it with other affirmation cards using a cord or a binder ring. (I have seen this idea among the PaperArtsy inspirations by Stephenie Ackerman).

With my ATC I would like to also join the following challenges:

- Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge: Winter Blues

- That's Crafty: Feeling Blue
