Time for a new challenge at One Stitch at a Time and this week the theme is Favourite Things.
One of my favourite things is ATCs - Artist Trading Cards. I love making these little works of art - they are fun to create and great for trying out new ideas and techniques. I also love to trade them and have swapped cards with people all over the world.
So for my project this week I made a set of ATC's using Gingerloft's Dream In a Dream Poe image from the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet:
I made one card in a sepia colour scheme, just because it seemed to fit the image:
And I made another two using a red, white and blue colour scheme, inspired by the IndePOEdence challenge at Quoth the Raven, Nevermore:
I used kraft card for a base and made the backgrounds using Distress Stains. I added the Poe image and, to finish, stamped and heat embossed a flock of birds (hey, they look like ravens to me, right? :D) and, on the blue and red cards, added some highlights and little stars with a while gel pen.
The challenge runs for a week and entries using a Stitchy Bear product have a chance to win our main prize. Entries not using a Stitchy Bear product will go into the draw to win a $3 gift voucher for the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.
I'm entering these cards into the following challenges:
