Fall Birthday ATC

It is fun creating Artist Trading Cards for a Birthday Swap, and this one was no exception!  Part of the fun is finding bits and pieces from other projects or practice projects that just flow together.

The base is another section of Kraft card stock pressure embossed with Teresa Collin’s Woodgrain Cottage and inked with Tsukineko StazOn Saddle Brown.  The practice project was created with Provo Craft Slab patterned paper die cut Heartfelt Creations Decorative Blossom Corner. 

The flower is created with Spellbinder Rose Creations that is stamped with Heartfelt Creations Botanical Floral Precut set with Tsukineko Versa Magic Shara Sand.  The petals are colored with Chameleon’s OR4 Seville Orange and then sprayed with Tsukineko Spritz in Gold.  The “leaves” are Heartfelt Creations Christmas Poinsettia and Sun Kissed Fleur die.  The leaves are stamped in Versa Magic Sage; heat embossed with clear embossing powder and colored with Chameleon OL3 Olive Green.  The flower is held together with a green glitter brad from my stash.

To finish the ATC I used green card stock die cut with Spellbinder’s Labels Eight.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is by Imaginisce from the Snag ‘em Stamps All Kinds of Happy Collection.  It is stamped in Tsukineko StazOn Saddle Brown. 

I would like to enter this ATC in the following challenges:
