ATC Transformation

Well, the weekend is over and some of us are back to work :( Blech. BUT, I found a little time yesterday to create a card for two challenges. Tammy Hershberger turned me onto Sharon Johnson's weekly Stamp Simply challenge ssnotime105, and the Crazy 4 Challenges team has another great sketch this weekend (C4C3). So, I used both for my card. The C4C3 sketch was a great layout for me to do another ATC transformation :O)

First my ATC:


And the transformation:


Sharon's challenge: Clean and Simple, Black Ink Only OR Brown Ink Only. So clean and simple in style, with only ONE ink, black or brown, and NO coloring. We’ve done something similar before, but this time we are adding in the clean and simple element as well and allowing either black or brown ink. ANY papers or embellishmemts are A-OK. The idea here is to keep our effort to a minimum by doing CAS and limiting inks and omitting coloring, but allowing our papers and embellishments to give our project the POP and pizzazz.

I don't know that my card counts as CAS, but I think it does :O) I only used brown ink (on the pot of the topiary). My sentiment is a Martha Stewart rub on!! That counts, right?? I tied a bow with craft thread and punched holes to pull the thread through the paper and tie off in the back. I stitched the buttons directly to the cs using the same craft thread. I used ribbon on cs for the middle layer (trying to stay CAS) and embossed the bottom layer.


So, that's all I have for today. I will see you again at the latest, on Wednesday for another great Color Throwdown challenge!


Hope you had a wonderful, relaxing weekend. We sure did! This weather is amazing! Nice and cool, yet bright and sunny. LOVE it! I was actually cold at the wedding we went to last night! I love the beginning of autumn :O)
