We’ll be starting off ATC Night in 2011 with non-traditional Valentine ATCs. If you plan to trade, you can take the challenge too. Or not! Mine are inspired by a soap wrapper (yes, that’s right) that I could not seem to throw away. Instead I copied it and used it for the background of my Valentine ATCs. Each also features a bird in a heart design (you can choose from among 4) and some glitter tulle and gold tissue paper. I love the way the materials just seemed to blend together. These cards prove that anything can be turned into art. Join me on Thursday, Jan. 20, 2011 at Stampin’ From the Heart, for ATC Night, 6:30-8 p.m. Materials to make 2 cards supplied by instructor and paper artist Jessica Hollowell. Cost $10. NOTE: If you plan to trade, please bring at least 12 cards (that includes one for me and one for the store.) Feel free to come even if you don’t trade. Some of the ATC artists may be willing to give you a card anyway and everyone who comes gets one of mine to take home.
