Enjoying the Journey with ATC's

Tomorrow is going to be my very first ATC swap hosted at Stamp Your Heart Out in quaint Claremont Village. My special artsy friend Sandra talked me into participating in this and I have to admit, I really had fun making these little cards. Started off with old cardboard and embossed it with Tim Holtz textured fade , used walnut stain for my base. Then sprayed it with Lindy Stamp's Treasure Island Aqua, it provided a wonderful patina effect.
Embossed the edges with PK Glitz embossing glitter "Bronze Patina". Then glammed it up with some vintage movie film from Studio Garage Band's Etsy store and some handmade labels made out of grungpaper which is also sold at their store.
Thanks again Sandra for the push to get involved with this.
