I have finally given it a go, and made my first ATC - never thought I would, but as usual, it's hard to stay away from what everyone else is doing!
I first stamped some Tim Holtz stamps with versamark and clear embossed them, before using Tim Holtz Distress Inks (peeled paint, fired brick, barn door, old paper, mustard seed, tea dye) - to smoosh around and make my background, with a little water for extra blending. A couple more stamps on top, and the largest bird has been re stamped on scrap card so I could make him go 3D. The mounted quote is a portion of the Tim Holtz stamp used on the background, and sort of sums up how I felt about finally sitting down to create my first ATC.
Because I could, I have linked this post up to a Sunday Stamper challenge run by Hels Sheridan - you should check out her blog ;)
Stamps used: Tim Holtz - French Market, Lifes Possibilities and Lost and Found; Kaisercraft - Dear Santa
