So last week I shared a grid style layout that featured that amazing wide Cactus Washi Tape. I obviously could not put it away because today I am sharing a card that started with that same tape!
Today is also the first day of my Greeting Card ATC Series! What is an ATC? An Artist Trading Card is a 2.5" x 3.5" piece of original art. They can be made in any medium and are intended to be traded with other artists, however, I am going to be using them as the basis for some cards!
I started by stamping an image and a sentiment onto watercolor paper...
Something you will learn about me is that I *love* using arrows as a design element! While I am looking forward to using the Vacation Arrow Sign Brads on another project, today I just needed a plain black arrow. No problem! I sanded the surface a bit, pulled out my acrylic paint and *gasp* painted over the design!

Anyway, I added a small piece from the Pearl Bling Strip and decided my ATC was done!
I created a clean & simple background...
Hmm - looks like I have some extra ATCs that I have already stamped. If you leave a comment for me over on my blog, My Time to Play, or my Facebook or Instagram pages, I will draw names and send them out next week. I would love to see what you create! (maybe I will have a contest...)
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
