This week’s challenge at Tilda and Friends is not to use any backing papers on your ATC. You may make your own backgrounds in whichever medium you wish. I started by spritzing some white card with Glimmer Mists, in purple and dark blue, until the entire surface was covered. When this was dry, I found that I had to iron the card to make it flat again – at last, a use for my neglected iron! After ironing the card flat, I cut it to ATC size, and put it through my Cuttlebug with the Divine Swirl embossing folder. Then I sanded the swirls with a crafter’s sanding block to bring out some of the white card again. I used a lovely stamped image from Pollycraft Designs, and coloured the darling little elf with Promarkers. I added a sticky-backed ribbon, paper flowers, handmade photo corners and buttons, all from my stash, to embellish.
Join us this week, and let your creativity loose on making a beautiful background for your ATC. As always, we would love to see your work.
