ACC's and ATC's...Collage is fun............

This ACC or Artfull Calling Card was fun to make...These cards are the same size as "moo" cards except in standard rather than metric measurements...I rounded the corner on this one and then ran it thru the cuttlebug embossing folder...I used my versa mark and rubbed it across the embossed areas...then used some perfect pearls to color them...I then rubbed some tea dye distress ink randomly across the ACC...I smoothed the embossed areas down flat using my bone folder and then stamped the words...I trimmed the edges with a dark brown marker and glued on the beautiful bird image from Lisa's Altered Art pages http://www.lisasalteredart.com I added the small prima flowers and put gold dimensional paint for centers...You can cut your own ACC's or "moo" size cards or get them precut from cardstock or chipboard http://thestudioinpreston.blogspot.com/

I love to make ATC's...once I get started I sometime don't know when to stop...LOL...I began with a cardstock ATC die cut and rubbed some tea dye ink onto it...I then used some background images from Innovative Stamp Creations to create a background to work off of...I cut another ATC from a patterned paper and tore it to use on the bottom part of the ATC...I used a flourish die cut from the same pattern paper as well...I used Lisa's Altered Art image, some prima flowers and beadazzles to embellish the ATC...I use Ranger Glossy Accents as a glue for the beadazzles and flowers...
