Vintage Blossoms ATCs

The talented and creative Shery has released some new "paper goods". There are card fronts, colorables, and ephemera -- all created for artsy crafters to play with and create fab projects. These lovely designs are professionally printed on 120# (325 gsm) matte white cardstock. 

This month, the DT has been working with 14 new products in the paper goods section: three (3) A2 card fronts, six (6) ephemera tiles, and five (5) ATC/journaling cards. Over the next few weeks, the STAMPgirls are sharing projects featuring the paper goods and today is my turn! 

I have been playing with the Vintage Blossoms ATCs, and my first instinct was to give some colour to the blossoms. Some of them are left blank, but even the others can be enhanced with the medium of your choice.

From left to right I tested pencils, alcohol pens and watercolours (both pens and pans watercolours).

I found the card excellent for pencil, the alcohol pens did not go through to the reverse (although I kept my layers and blending to the minimum just in case)  and it did accept water well enough for a quick colouring.

With my coloured pencil I made this card:

The background has been stencilled with the Slimline stencil Stitchings with Distress Oxide in Antique Linen and the sentiment is a die-cut from the Everyday Sentiments

Then another card with the watercoloured ATC:

The sentiment is from the Shine Bright - Clear Stickers set placed on a die-cut label. The die-cut border is included in the 8th Birthday Bundle #1.

Finally the size of the ATCs lends itself to become gift tags, so I played with the media in my stash and my bits and bob accumulated overtime. I was pleased to set an eyelet (butterfly shaped) that I don't think I have used for over 5 years! Same with butterfly stickers and the gems, I have plenty but never think of them!!!

You might recognise, enamel accents, gold foil and pearlescent colours (13@rts -  Metallic Color Glow)  although that last one is difficult to see on the photos (sadly the weather turned to rain for days on end):

and a closer look at the foiling:

These ATC's are perfect as journaling cards and don't even need any embellishment but if you want to add that personal touch... plenty of things you can add! 

You can see more inspiration on the STAMPlorations blog where Vicky shows her makes with the Vintage Blossoms ATCs alongside mine .
