My first ATC



Here is my very first ATC. I signed up for an ATC swap and this is what I am turning in. I wanted something that would reflect who I am. The Fleur de lis symbolizes Acadiana, which is where I live. I know its hard to see, but the Fleur de lis is embossed with a glittery embossing powder from Ranger Industries. Its is gold in color but has irredescent flakes of glitter. I first stamped the image with black ink on brown cardstock, then stamped over the image with versamark and embossed. The title was computer generated and printed directly on the cards, I created text boxes in the size I needed then cut them out. I think I got 8 on a page.
I leave for Croppin in the 60's tomorrow. I will try to scan and post all the ACT I receive next week.
Here is a link to Croppin in the 60's

WOW...this fleur-de-lis turned out really pretty didn't it, with the irredescent glitter on gold. I have to go see if all of the ones you recieved are on here yet. I am just getting ready for work and thought I would peek in this morning!
