' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Shabby chic ATCs

Shabby chic ATCs

I have been inspired by Jennie's ATCs over on the Paper Artsy blog and tried my hand at her technique. It didn't exactly turned out the way I hoped... that is, the way Jennie's background looked... Still it's all a learning experience!


Newspaper patterned paper and button: Trimcrafts Curiosity Corner
Paper Artsy stamps: HP1206, ESN10 ((my favourite stamp set for backgrounds)
Fresco paints in Bubble gum and Chalk
Violet Storm Infusion

I followed Jennie's method and design very closely, although once again, I couldn't fit as many things as she did on the small canvas of ATCs.
If you missed my first batch of ATCs, they are here.

Thanks for coming by,
Also entering the Lost Coast Design, Addicted to stamps, SSS Wednesday and Allsorts challenges.
