How to Make an ATC – Part Deux

Challenges are so much fun!  In the “Complicated Swap Lovers” group on Swap-Bot, we’re doing another “How to Make an ATC” swap, and this time the first seven people who signed up got to choose a step in the process.  We had to do these steps in order, leaving out none and adding none, to make our ATC:

1. Start with a patterned background.

2. Outline the edges with a metallic marker or ink pad (any metallic color).

3. Add two or more circles.

4. Draw, glue, sew or otherwise attach an image of your favorite bird.

5. Attach a non-round button or brad.

6. Add a piece of ribbon or fiber.

7. Write, draw or stamp something in ink on the bottom half.

8. Use something found or recycled.

I think it’s pretty obvious just from looking how I did each step, except probably the last one.  The green heart was punched from a paint chip from the home improvement store.  (The color, if you’re interested, is “basil.”  It’s rather nice, isn’t it?)

Oh, and my contribution was number 2.  🙂
