The theme this Monday at Simon Says Stamp and Show is buttons. The ATCs were both cut from gelli plate prints. On the top one I stamped a buttons UM image (Cat's Life Press) over the base using Tea Dye Distress Ink (Ranger). I also sponged the ink along the edges of the card, typed word, and over the flower trim. Transparency is from ARTchix Studio. Button is Dress It Up.
For the second ATC I used image and words from ARTchix Studio. Edges are all sponged with Tea Dye Distress ink (Ranger). Tiny buttons are from Gary Burlin & Co.
I am also linking the second one to Inspiration Avenue (bird theme), Summer of Color 3 (color theme of citron and turquoise). At Summer of Color we get to vote for each week's color challenge and I was thrilled to have a fave combo to art with this week. Can't wait to see what the challenge is next week :)
Here are two more ATCS:
I'm linking up to Glue It Tuesdays at artsyville and hosted by Aimee, A Colorful Gelli Print Party hosted by Carolyn Dube, and Summer Of Color 3 at Twinkle, Twinkle hosted by Kristin.
