I have not created any ATC lately. Just thought I would give it a go with my stamp.
Here are the steps to this ATC.
1) Use a pattern paper as the base for this ATC. Distress the edges using the scissors distressing technique. Ink it with brushed corduroy and black soot distress ink. Stamp on it using a script background stamp and weathered wood distress ink.
2) Stamp some harlequin using embossing ink on the left border and heat embossed it using some clear embossing powder. When it's all cool down, stamp over it with the same harlequin stamp and some solvent ink. Ink all over the ATC with vintage photo, brushed corduroy and weathered wood distress ink.
3) Stamp the distressed speedometer and the hinges on a white card stock using solvent ink and cut it out. Add some vintage photo distress ink on them and paste them down using some foam adhesive. Detail it with liquid pearls and mini brads.
4) Add a metal embellishment to it and hand stitch on the upper border of the ATC.

5) Stamp the word "Joy" on a white card stock and cut it out. Ink it's edges with weathered wood distress ink.
This is a fast and simple ATC. Hope you all like the projects that I've shared using the stamps so far. Be sure to check out Queen Kat Designs and get these stamps.
