Rogue ATC - Je t'aime

Hiya, folks! Are you enjoying your Saturday? It's been wonderfully sunny and NOT in the 100's this weekend - awesome! Maybe fall is FINALLY making its way here??? We can only hope.

This little project is not a card. It's actually an ATC - artist trading card. I'm playing along in the Rogue challenge to create an ATC with some part of it sticking "outside the box." If you've been following me, you know I don't make ATC's so this was a bit of a challenge for me.

I pulled out my Floriculture stamp set and played around with some of the stamps to see what would look good. Due to the tiny nature of this ATC - it's only 2.5" by 3.5" - I decided to stick with a little floral scene.

The white cardstock is sponged with blue and green inks, and then I stamped the flowers with a brown ink. The three round-ish flowers are not solid stamps - I used the Silhouette technique (from Technique Junkies) to change them a little bit. The sentiment was stamped and punched out with an oval punch, and I adhered it to the top with part of it sticking out from the side. I added some sheer dotted ribbon to the bottom to balance out the ATC so it wasn't so top-heavy.

Have you played along with these Rogue challenges? Check out their current challenge and play along with us. There's a fantastic prize for one lucky winner!
