Think Monday - Think ATC - Men


It is the last day for the TM - Think ATC theme of "Men" so I thought I'd have a break from some stuff I am working on and upload a scan of an ATC I did a while back in a themed exchange that ran for a couple of years. The scan is a bit blurry and there is a lot of glare because the biggish brad means it doesn't sit flat! Sorry about that.

This ATC is made out of a piece of thick red vinyl that I bought very very cheaply in one of those recycling (reverse garbage) places. It was hard to stamp on because the stamp sticks to the vinyl so the image is not a good example of stamping technique but I really liked doing something a bit different. The ATC is actually a lot darker and a much deeper red than it shows on my computer/scanner. The "General Failure" stamp is by Paper Artsy and its one I love. I used thin leather thonging and a bright red brad with Letraset numbers to create the X and darkened the edges with Black StazOn ink.

Now to get back to the six tissue paper studies that I am currently working on...
