Sand, Sky, Seagull ATCs

I am back with a quick post on the 2 ATCs I made for a swap at the Art for the Creative Mind Yahoo group.

On the first ATC I started out by painting the background with a blue shimmer paint. I then added in some white blobs to look like clouds. I added some texture by drying the paint until it bubble up a bit. For my sand I used Tim Holtz Distress Embossing powder. I then added in my ink dyed feather, a vial full of sand and a quote I found on Pintrest.

I started with some distress stain and ink for my second ATC. I drew in the sun with a Distress Marker. Once again I used the Distress Embossing Powder for sand. I then added in some stickles and some white pearl pen for my clouds, waves, and water. Lastly I adhered on the sea shells (I added a bit more stickles to these as well), seagull, and stamped saying.

I am submitting these to the Frilly and Funkie Vintage Travel Challenge. I would love to be traveling to the beach on these hot Summer days. Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed my quick little post.


  1. Both of these are lovely and very creative.

  2. Beautiful ATC's Stacy. Side by side they transport me to the seaside... Thank you so much for joining us at Frilly and Funkie. Jenny x
