What a Wonderful World ATC!!

Happy Monday, everyone!! I hope you had a great weekend!! Three of my friends are hosting challenges that I wanted to enter, so I kept all three criteria in mind while making my project today :)


I made an ATC to enter into Diana's challenge, I used yellow for Karen, and just elements, no die cuts for Chris...that was soooo hard for me!! AND, I just realized I missed the deadline by a few hours :( Sorry, Chris...I really wanted to participate!! I started with black cardstock measuring 2.5 x 3.5 and then added two layers of beautiful paper from DCWV's Colorful Life stack. This paper has tons of sparkle but you can't tell in the pictures. I inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Ink.


I hand-cut elements from different sheets of the paper stack to use, including the butterfly, the sparkly white dot, the music note paper and the circle with sweet life. I know ATC's are supposed to be relatively flat, but I couldn't resist adding one teeny tiny piece of foam tape to pop up a sweet life over the butterfly.


"What a Wonderful World" is from K Andrew Designs newest stamp set, Of Mice & Lil Men!! I absolutely LOVE this set!! So many fun sentiments that are perfect not only for Disney cards, but so much more!! I stamped the sentiment, then cut around the individual words and matted them on black cardstock. "Wonderful" was stamped over raised sparkly rays and I love the dimension it added, but again, hard to see in the picture. Here is the awesome stamp set I used:

I am entering the ATC in the following challenges

  2. DL.Art - ATC card
I have some people to thank for blog awards, and I will do that later this week. Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)

Jayne said...

Fabulous ATC Lisa.Love the colours and dimension.I used to make lots of altered ATC's and as far as I am aware it is the size that's crucial,which I always took as I could make as deep as I pleased!!Possibly my interpretation is wrong..?!
