I joined a “Just a Little Spooky” atc swap.  I had to make two and since it’s a mixed media/creative group, they needed to be stepped up a bit from what I would normally do.  I spent hours working on them and hope the recipient likes them!


The first one is a witch from Lil Inker Designs. She is from a set called Bats & Broomsticks.

Lil Inkers Bats and Broomsticks ATC

I embossed her with Brilliance Graphite Black ink and SU black embossing powder. Then I added Faber Castell Glass Bead Glitter Glue with the Simon Says Stamp Falling Stars stencil. I let it dry naturally for a bit and then used my heat gun on it.  I then sprayed it with Tim Holtz Wilted Violet distress stain spray and sponged on Seedless Preserves and Black Soot distress ink. I wiped a baby wipe over it to take away some of the ink off the witch and the stars. I decided to add the sentiment in white.  It didn’t emboss fully because of the black embossing underneath but I think it still looks okay.


This next ATC uses the uber popular Tim Holtz Crazy Birds and Crazy Birds accessories set.

TH Crazy Birds Halloween ATC

My fingers are still a bit orange from this atc LOL!  I added Carved Pumpkin distress ink to a Tim Holtz Alterations spider web embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot. Then I added a few words from the Tim Holtz Halloween layering stencil using Black Soot distress ink.  I stamped the crazy bird and the witch hat and cut them out with my Scan N Cut.  It nicked a few of parts of the wings so I stamped them again and added them on. The bird and hat were colored with copics. I added Gold Wink of Stella to the witch’s hat and glossy accents to the bird’s eyes.


I need to go get a few more cards made before the Cubs/Mets game tonight!
