Boyish ATCs

Today I am sharing  a few ATCs prepared for a swap.  The theme was masculine and found objects.  I combined a few of the sweet Artistic Outpost boy images with a few bits and pieces.

The sweet  Paperboy image was stamped over tissue tape and a wood panel background to create a translucent effect.  To accent there were a few gears, screw top, chain bits placed around the edges. I stamped the Outpost image from the timepiece onto another piece of cardstock and punched it out to place inside the bottle cap. I mixed blue and green dye ink in the background behind the house. I then attached it to the bottle cap with tape and added a screw brad to the center.

The happy boy from Country Life was stamped on white cardstock and colored with watercolor pencils and a waterbrush.  I cut him out to make him fit on my pattern paper background. I broke the ruler to fit onto the ATC.  I added a few fake screws to the ruler.  I stamped the Simplify in red ink and distressed it with brown dye ink.

I have a few more ATCs to share next week using the men images from Artistic Outpost!

Happy Friday!
