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.

So without further ado, this is what our team have come up with, please feel free to go look at their blogs.


Background paper , corner punch and lace from SU . Flower , brad and Sweet tag from stash . Hope you like .

I have used stamps from the Urban Collection, which have been inked, lace has been added and the little bird placed on the top. xx

Here is mine for this week hope you like xxxxx

A plain red background, with an patterned paper covered in red lace. A floral tag as the main image and three small flowers for a little detail.

I have had this shocking pink lace for some time so thought it would be perfect for this challenge, teamed up with a corset, of course, lol.

I eventually found some lace that I had in my hair accessories bag. I made my own lace backing paper and used an image from MCS, mounted it on black card and added a glitzy flower.


For this one I've used paper from crafty individuals for the background and flowers.
Stamped my image in sepia ink. My lace I got in a big box of stuff someone
was throwing out years ago! ohh and I added a wee gem too!
hope you like it. Alison x
