Tiddly Inks Challenge #24 - ATC
Regardless, this weeks fabu challenge over at the Tiddly Ink Challenge blog is superb!!! I chose a relatively simple design that would translate well when shrunk way down. The 'Who Loves You' image was perfect. I could have gone very "halloweeny" with this but today was my daughter's 6th birthday and we're surrounded by American Girl Doll clothing boxes.
The hot pink, bright purple and green really called to me so I ran with it.
I printed the image twice. I colored one fully and then colored in only the hearts of the other tree. I trimmed out all of the hearts and added them to the fully colored tree with bits of 3-D foam adhesive that I kept trimming down.
After my image was done, I used Illustration Board as my ATC backing, followed by a strip of lavender paper, followed by a scrap from one of the AG boxes, followed by a Celedon green ribbon tied in a neat knot. I then trimmed out my tree and pop it up on 3-D adhesive and added it to the ATC.
The 3-D effect really was the look I was going for and keeping it simple really helped.
I hope you enjoy and come join everyone over at the TI Challenge blog!!
