HLS ATC Challenge July Theme: Floral

Good morning, afternoon and evening :)  I have created a set of Floral ATCs for the HLS Challenge Blog today using watercolors, embossing powder and a huge stamp set from IndigoBlu.

These ATCs turned out so pretty!  I started with bristol paper in my usual 9 x 12 and added some Dr PH Marten';s Hydrus Liquid watercolors.  These watercolors are so vivid in color!

Then I used my Versamark Ink and stamped the largest flower from the Giant Poppy stamp set and stamped the little one and some leaves all over the paper.

Then I heat embossed the images with gold embossing powder.  After that I cut them into the ATC size, which is 2.5 x 3.5 inches and distressed the edges with Distress Ink.  I glued my ATC backing cards onto the backs and added a Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker to each one and lastly I added some glass drops and they're done!

Seven of these ATCs are available for trade over at the Worldwide ATC Swap Group on Facebook :)  It's a fun group with people to trade with all over the world!

I will be back next month with another fun set of themed ATCs :)
