My new ATC Card


I joined this great monthly ATC swap on SplitcoastStampers and this is my atc for Aug. The theme this month was your favorite technique. How hard is that to choose just 1!!! I have several that I love, the shaving cream and baby wipe are pretty much up there, but I decided to go with one I had never done before - the melted crayon. Oh what fun - it was just like playing at school, but with much hotter stuff :) And I should mention that of course I left this swap till the last possible minute and had to figure something out to do.
So anyhoo, after a few different color combo's and abit of trial and error, this is the background I settled on. It is 3 colors, yellow, lt. orange and pink, nice and bright. I then took the SU Eat Cake stamp set and Craft Black stamp pad. Then added abit of dazzling diamonds by punching the candles and putting packing tape behind the card and sprinkled the dd on. Hard to see in the pic, but pretty irl. Then abit of black gingham ribbon and done. I think that this will be a great little addition to a full card....
