ATC Cards and me

I have troubles all the time doing ATC cards. I don't know why but that small area makes me choke up and loose all inspiration.. Yet I'm in about 3 yahoo groups and my own group at OWSE. One hostess wanted layers. I got in this big thing about what does that mean since I stamp I think layers is your background and then some stamping and maybe a main image. Well she wanted more then that. I kindly backed out that swap and did some other projects. When I all of a sudden noticed my name on the list for that swap.. I choked up! Now what.. so I did the big the hell with it and stamped layers on the card. If this isn't good enough I guess she can kindly send the card back to me which she states she will do if the cards she gets isn't good enough for her scrutiny.. bah humbug!!

So you tell me what you think about this card and if it's not good enough for a swap. grrrrrr

My First Layer is the Technique by Tim Holtz called "Wrinkle Free" using Distress Inks
Then I stamped the Oriental writing

after that I stamped the tree with embossing ink and wet embossed with pink embossing powder
I then used my Gold Leaving Marker and went around the edges

and then added the charm.

Is this not good enough? We will see!

Hey thanks for Looking!!! I'm really not mad just confused on what more is wanted.

duh and duh again!

  1. Robyn Your ATC is lovely and I think anyone would be pleased to receive it. Art is so subjective that it is hard to catch someone else's vision, isn't it? I am not in the swap so I don't know what she meant by layers but the first thought that comes to me is layers of paper or elements. Like you did on your beeswax collage - background first, then actual items layered on top. I do this a lot to make my projects more dimensional and to add textural interest.


Thank you for taking the time to Comment. I so appreciate it.
