ACT Challenge

ATC stands for Artists trading card which were originally given by artists as a sample of their works. They are bits of card that measure 3.5 x 2.5 inches exactly. You decorate one side using a range of techniques and then write on the back a title for it, the date and who its made by.

4th challenge - Fathers Day Themed

Afternoon Everyone

A big Happy Fathers Day to all the wonderful Fathers out there xx

Thank you for the lovely entrys for our last challenge Austin Powers - We will be back later for a Winners Post catch up for the last two challenges 

Its Tonys Turn to choose this fortnight - So he has chosen in the theme of Today Fathers Day - Male Themed ATC 

The Prize for this is - 

5 Stamped Images of the above stamps, A gorjuss Van and a wonderful Bike 


This is made entirely from free images from the internet. DAD with peel offs, and a few blue gems just to give it a little bit of jazz. And of course blue eyelets.    


Made mine a Father's Day ATC.
3D trophy and epoxy stickers [ best] from my stash .
ATC is black with layer of light blue which has diecut oval .
Punched small star to add DAD to trophy.


This train I cut out by hand, decoupaged up and added the happy Fathers Day sentiment and also some metal brads to enhance the male theme


Decoupage Fishing Scene, with a peel off with love


For this atc I used images from a mens atc booklet, I also used crackle paint on the man's picture and the edges and ink around the edges too.


 I very gently smudged some black and yellow ink with a piece of sponge on to a piece of card, careful not to over colour it. I then stamped the image and mounted it on to a black atc blank to frame it. Finishing off with a computor generated sentiment,also mounted on a piece of black card.

Stamped the postage marks and stamped & embossed the the image of the man. Painted over entire ATC with acrylic paint and then wiped over with a tissue to remove some of the paint. Stamped 'Man' in bottom right.


I have decided to make a little ATC Easel.  My image is a free stamp that I got years ago from Craft Stamper (do you remember the old red rubber ones mounted on foam - yep it's that old!).  The lovely papers are from DCWV La Creme stack

Please remember we are an ATC Challenge Blog, the rules can be found at the top under the tabs

Look forward to seeing all your ATC creations
