A little ATC (Meg's Garden/Dusty Attic/Helmar)

Artist trading cards (ATCs) are the perfect little canvas (2.5" x 3.5") to play with product and create a pretty embellishment to add to a layout or as a focal point of a card or tag.


Here I have used an older paper from Meg's Garden "The Antoinette Collection" to create a Parisian themed card. The papers in the additional strip you receive with Meg's papers are perfect for these kinds of little projects. I have added a beautiful Dusty Attic chipboard fountain (painted in DA white paint) that I topped with a mix of pale pink fine german glitter glass (also from Meg's shop) combined with coarser glass Diamond Dust. I love the effect of combining the two glass products for a soft effect. I used a nice variety of Helmar adhesives - premium craft glue for the paper layers, acid-free glue to adhere the glass to the fountain as well as stick the fountain to the paper, 450 quick dry for the flowers and butterflies, plus gemstone glue for the pearls in the flower centres. Amazing how much glue a little ATC can take!
