Today I have the pleasure to tell you, that I was invited to create an ATC for Caro's Challenge blog "Fun with ATCs" as a guest designer, by which I feel very honoured.
"Keys" are this fortnight's issue and this is my project:
I used silver foil, in which I engraved some swirls, an outer frame and the frame of a keyhole using an embossing tool. Afterwards I altered the cut out piece with AAI and punched in two holes for the brads.
The ATC background is a B&W design paper scrap from a Tattered Angels paper stash, which I covered with Gesso and left only untreated at the space, where the keyhole would go. The edges were distressed and inked with a rough sponge and black stamping ink. The stamp border on the left and the flourish on the right were stamped with "pumice stone", the keys and sentiment with archival black ink.
Before positioning the keyhole, I glued a white lace ribbon to the bottom of the card. Then I fixed the keyhole with foam-sticky pads, after inserting the brads. Done!
Here some more close-ups:
Thank you again, Caro, for the lovely invitation!!! I had lots of fun!
