Welcome to day 2 of ISC's.....

Inspiration Crusade!!! Yep, that is the name I gave it ;D. Since this month we are having a new release, we focus on the stamps we all already have that we have only used once or a couple of times. So, let's dust those stamps off and get them inked up!! :D:D. Today we, the Creative Architects are showing you some ATC's (Artist Trading Cards), three to be exact, that make together one continuous piece of art. I was struggling with this...yep, I needed to get out of my comfort zone, as I never made a ATC before in my life. After a cool tip from my fellow teammate KAT aka Kathy Tucker I was able to handle it and found that it is not too bad after all ;D.....thanks Kathy!!!!

So, here is what I came up with

You inspire me


Paper:PTI Rustic Cream, green cs (no name available, from my stash), DCWV The Rustic Stack

Stamps: ISC Nature SilhouettesII for the butterflies, Odd Findings for the Daisy and you inspire me Marvels of Nature II for the leaf branch/vine

Inks: SU Mellow Moss, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Tea Dye, Palette Moulin Rouge

Accessories: Recollections silver half pearls

WOW, I just made my first set of ATC's and let me tell you, it was not that hard (once you know what you are supposed to do,LOL!!)

As you might remember from yesterday you have a chance of winning one free stamp sheet of your choice if you leave me some love. It is not required, but it sure will increase your chance of winning this free stamp sheet of your choice, if you head on over to my teammates and leave a comment there as well, so to even make it more fun, we are not just giving a way a FREE sheet of stamps to ONE person, no, we are giving away TWO sheets, so make sure you visit everybody on the list below and the ISC Blog to increase your chances ;D.

Wow! This is your first try at an ATC? It came out beautiful. My ATC's have always been made very simple. Yours is not only elegant but it is continued onto to all 3 of them!!! You my friend are very artistic indeed.

Hi Sabrina~

Wow! I have never ventured into the land of ATC card! I can't imagine how anyone can color in stamps that are so small.

Your ATC's came out wonderfully. They could be given as individuls or as the set. Great job!
