More cards made with ATCs

I have made a few more cards with my supply of ATCs (artist trading card) collected over the last 20 years!!  I am very happy with the results of incorporating these little piece of art into cards.

For this card, I added the layered pumpkin image (stash) to the ATC  and added a green layer to the back.  The ATC was created using distress inks on a craft sheet.  I layered the green card front with some decorative paper with gold embossing and mounted my main element using 3D foam tape.  I added the Happy Fall laser printed greeting.
The ATC used for this card is the orange rectangle which illustrated a quick paste paper technique.  The double layered dragonfly image (stash) worked really well with it so I mounted it on the left and punched slots on the right.  I added a piece of fiber which I found with the dragonfly.  I used a red card front which I layered with this very cool wax crayon/wallpaper background.  It was a bit short so scallop punched the edge and layered in a strip of orange cardstock.  I ran the ends of the fiber to the inside of the card and adhered them with double sided tape.  Added a laser printed greeting.
I created the background paper for this card using a laser print of this scan from my sister Sylvia's blog.  I added blue and purple watercolour with a brush and later stamped it with a daisy (Magenta) in a dark purple ink.  I glued the decorated paper to a blue card, added the ATC and a colour printed greeting punched with the decorative label punch by Stampin UP.

What a wonderful little piece of art!!   I used a black card front, layered it with coordinating origami paper and added a black ribbon across it just below the half way mark.  I added a laser printed greeting to the ATC and adhered it to the card front using 3D foam tape.
This ATC demonstrated the shadowed faux batik technique in lovely shades of green.  I added a little leaf (partner to the pumpkins) with 3D foam tape to complete my main element.  I used a yellow card front and added a double embossed background in the perfect colours for this layout.  I adhered the main element to my card front using 3D foam tape and later added a layered greeting (laser printed window punch over a modern label punchie).

Another lovely ATC - faux tintype!!  I used an ivory card front, layered on a gold embossed decorative paper and tied on a gold cording.  I added the ATC and the punched greeting using 3D foam tape.

I have enough cards now to make up several packs of cards!!
I really love these cards!!
