Soar

Soar ATC


I really enjoy making Artist Trading Cards (ATCs)!  How about you?  

To me, its freeing to have a defined space 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches, to work with.

I love using elements like the wooden heart and angel wings for 3D effect.  I purchased these goodies from Art Chix and highly recommend checking out all the goodies and FREE tutorials Helga has there.

The finishing touch on this ATC is the glitteringly gorgeous embossing powder, which in person adds sparkle and shine to an otherwise dark background.  And what girl doesn't like a little bling?   

My goal is to start making an ATC a day, to keep my hands and heart happy by creating every day.  No matter how busy or crazy life gets, I NEED this!

What makes your heart sing?  Do you sew?  Paint?  Bead?  When was the last time you did it?  Perhaps its time to start again...
