Tiddly Inks Challenge #24 -- ATCs

The latest challenge at Tiddly Inks is to create an ATC, or Artist Trading Card. I couldn't resist joining the challenge--I love making ATCs! I wanted to use one of Christy's cute Halloween digis and decided on Batty with her pet bat on a leash.


I used two different distress inks for the background--Pumice Stone and Black Soot--and did some water splotching and added some white dots. I colored one of the images and left the other "as is" for a different look. The finished size for each is 2.5 by 3.5".

You have a few more days to join the challenge over at Tiddly Inks. ATCs are fun and making them can be quite addictive. Plus, it's a good way to use your scraps!

Stamps: Tiddly Inks digital stamp, Hero Arts (bats), Studio g alphabet stamps
Ink: Pumice Stone, Black Soot distress inks; Papertrey Ink Fresh Snow
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Bazzill
Other: Copics, Sharpie white poster paint pen
