Summertime Dream ATC
This is my first time doing an ATC (I had to look up what an ATC was!) and also an ATC swap with SOE/SOD. Bear with me please. Lol!
The weather where I live is in the 99's and higher so this summer inspired ATC/tag is very appropriate. I used a 2-1/8" x 4-1/4" medium white tag.
First I sprayed Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays onto my crafting table, then I rubbed the tag into the sprays and mixed it together. I ended up with 3 different tags all from the first spray (I think I used too much-but that is okay).
I wanted this tag to remind people of the summer heat and sunset so I stayed with orange, yellow, and a touch of red. I have this interesting ribbon with holes in it that worked well with my summer theme after I sprayed it with the same colors as the tag.
I cut out a square using some leftover scrap paper and stamped this sentiment on it because summer days always make me think of exploring (must be the dreamer in me). I added the butterfly and touched it up with some shimmering yellow Luminarte spray. I used the yellow on one of the flowers as well. The other flower I used Lindy's Stamp Gang orange and dry brushed some yellow on it to give dimension.
The key was a no brainer-had to have a key to unlock the summer reality. Lol! Then I added the sunset orange ribbon to the punched hole at the top and this finished my ATC/tag.
I found this Etsy shop (Alleystamp) that sells so many mixed media products at very affordable prices. This is where I got the LSG sprays.
This tag will be shipped to my swap partner and also entered into the following challenges:
