Winter Mini-ATC's

I recently did a mini ATC swap with a theme of 'Winter'. Mini ATC's are sort of halfway between inchies and ATC's. I chose to use some fun wintry images on a snowflake background.

Stampers Anonymous ATC

This piece was for a swap using a Stampers Anonymous stamp. With so many great images to choose from, it took me a while to settle on one, so I decided to use something that rarely gets out of the drawer. For the background on this one, I 'enameled' my ATC cardstock with several layers of embossing powder. I was having trouble getting a good clear image after having done that, so I ended up stamping the image on acetate and then running it through the Xyron. The bottom is embellished with watch parts.

A special thanks to Trish Bee and all the Art Venture members. Thanks so much for encouraging, prodding, and pushing those of us who have a little trouble leaving the comfort of our usual zones into new and ever more exciting artistic endeavors.
