Masking ATC

I finished my ATCs for The Stampers Hut swap last night as they were due today, so I got them in just on time. This month's theme was "Masking". The ATC looks pretty basic, but did take a bit of time as there are three layers to the card. I stamped and embossed the lady first, then covered her over with a piece of paper cut to the exact size, I then stamped the barcode and covered that over with a piece of paper and then finished off with the final stamp, which is the script. I like the combination and was happy with how it all turned out.

I also finished all of my "gesso & magazine images" for the ATC Workshop #3 swap through ATC_World. They're not the best cards I've ever done, but it was the first time I've done this technique from Bernie Berlin's ATC Workshop and they're an experience. I ended up making 6 cards even though only 3 are required for the swap, because Pam & Kyla are also participating, so we're swapping with each other also ... the more cards the merrier I say.

I still have a set of ATCs due for the Live Swap tomorrow at The Scrapbook Cupboard, which I will be finishing as soon as I complete this post, as well as the "Stencil" ATCs for ATC_World, 3 ATCs for WTA Winners and my "zettiology" ATCs for the Advanced Artist Trading Card UK Yahoo Group swap that all need to be sent out on Monday ... I'm going to have a very creative weekend, luckily Ferg (dh) is in Sydney until sometime tomorrow, so I should get quite a bit done.

Hey, the magazine picture ATCs look good to me! Great, well done! I haven't tried that technique yet...... Hope you get the rest of your ATCs done, you're going to be busy. Sometimes it's handy if husbands are away for a while LOL! Kate
