Grungy Monday Challenge - Valentine ATCs

It's been a while since I've participated in a Grungy Monday challenge, and finally this week I was able to. Grungy Monday challenges are presented by Linda Ledbetter over at StudioL3 where we are challenged to use techniques by Tim Holtz then upload and share them over at Linda's blog. This week's challenge #35 is ATC's (Artisan Trading Cards) using at least one Tim Holtz product or technique, so be sure to hop over there and check out all the artistic creations.


With Valentine's Day coming, I thought it would be fun to make Valentine ATC's for a few of my card-making buddies.


Tim Holtz products used: Odds & Ends stamp set (ticket), Valentine Backgrounds & Borders Texture Fade, Victorian Velvet and Black Soot Distress inks, and Mini Love Struck Alterations die (shrink plastic cherub).




I personalized each ATC with my friends' names which I typed on the computer and cut out.




We're getting together today to make cards, so this will be a sneaky Valentine surprise.


Thanks for stopping by today. Have a fabulous day!
