Hi All, I am sharing some ATC's I made for a swap at the Gecko Galz Yahoo group. The theme was to express yourself as an artist. I didn't get good pictures, there is a lot of detail in these though. I printed the front and back both and I used a PNG image on the back, it was really hard to size and line up especially since I do it in Word. I used Lil Ellaboudy Design photo borders PNG (on sale today for $1.88 for a set of 6 ). I used some black ink to clean up the edges so you can't see how far off my printing was, ha ha! Then I printed the Gecko Galz Versailles ATC paper image once on matte photo paper and another time on glossy card stock, I fussy cut a flower and 2 butterflies out of the glossy so they stand out a bit, then I mounted them with some Stampin Up Crystal Effects which gives them more lift than glue, but not as much as foam pads. I added black glitter to the center of the big flower, cut some white glitter tape with fancy scissors and mounted it on 1 side. It still looked plain so I added a piece of white leaves ribbon and then traced the veins and leaves and stem with green Stickles. I then made envelopes on the Zing and hand cut the liners, they had to have liners! I wanted a closure on the envelopes but I did not want to make it heavy or bulky for the mailings so I finally came up with these gold filigree Starform corner stickers, I think they really add a classy touch. Thanks for looking. ~Diane
