Hello and happy Friday! My gosh, I haven't posted anything since Monday. I'm getting ready to go on vacation (next week) and I'm afraid that my head is in the getting-ready-to-go mode. Being a mega planner, it takes me a couple of weeks to get organized. I've been working to get all of my DT obligations done for the next few weeks + all of my dt blog posts scheduled and haven't had time to post "just for fun".
I have a new post up today over at Craft Your Nest. I'm going to post most of it here again, but we'd love for you to stop by the blog or our Facebook page and say hello.
Here's an arched, dimensional ATC that I made using some of the patterned papers from Graphic 45's Communique collections.
This isn't new so you might have seen this in my gallery. I posted it again because I have a short tutorial that goes along with it.
First thing I did was make my ATC (2 1/2" x 3 1/2") and I rounded the top of it into an arch.
I used 4 identical images for this dimensional ATC. The first image is the bottom image and will be attached directly to the ATC base.
Here's a picture of the other 3 identical images.
I fussy cut each of these 3 images and applied a coat of Mod Podge to each one of them.
When these images were dry, I turned them over and using Zots (or a similar dimensional adhesive), applied several to the back side of each one.
I stacked the 3 Mod Podged images on top of each other.
Here's a side view.
Then I just attached these images to the original image (that's on the ATC base). Notice I only used the bodies of the 3 additional images. Here's a picture of my finished ATC again.
I also "sanded" the edges for a more distressed look.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
