The first one that I worked on was an ATC swap with a sunflower theme. That was right up my alley. I have lots of sunflower stamps. They're probably second in number only to my dragonfly stamps. I used a Posh sunflower stamp and my Marvy markers for this one--direct to rubber, spritzed with water and stamped. The sentiment was stamped on vellum, and I have to say that I like these Glue Dots vellum adhesive sheets. The glue dots are so tiny that you really can't see them! I'm impressed. I also fell back on an old technique. I'd distressed the edges, but the card still looked too plain in the upper left corner. I couldn't think of what to put there, when it occurred to me to add to the distressed look . I pulled out one of my splatter stamps and stamped in the upper and lower corners. It felt more complete to me after that.
The second ATC that I did was for a floral/garden swap, which had to include a quote. I love gardening, so coming up with a quote wasn't too hard. Finding one that would fit nicely on an ATC was a little trickier, but it worked out fine. The sentiment was from Designs Ink'd and the thistle from Just For Fun.
