Vintage ATC's by Jowilna Nolte

#couturecreationsaus

Welcome to another blogpost with me Jowilna - today I am sharing a set of 
Vintage ATC cards with you
If you are a paper crafter then I am sure you are a hoarder right? you say what if, and one day really a lot don't you? yes you know I am right!
So todays project is one of those one day's....
years ago when I had more time on my hands I started a set of ATC cards. They were (are) really pretty and vintage looking but needed something to finish them off and a home. So when I was cleaning up the studio last week I found them in a packet all ready and waiting to be finished...and here they are
I used some of the amazing Couture Creations dies to dress them up and finally finish them off - and I love how the die-cuts just adds enough of a something different


 I used this cute little Rocking Horse | CO723518 from the Secret Treasures range. I cut it out of a smooth thick brown cardstock and inked the edges in white Brilliance pigment ink to soften the edges a bit and add a worn vintage look to it. Once the ink was dry and I adhered it to my ATC card I added a layer of dimensional glaze and left it to dry overnight.

For my next card I used the gorgeous Paddington Street Lamp – CO723740
from the Metricon Collection as well as the Art Deco Border – CO723738 from the same collection.

 I cut the Paddington lamp out of white cardstock and then separated the cut so that I had two pieces to work with. I coloured them separately using dark brown ink and left them to dry. The scroll part of the die was adhered to my other ATC card and dressed up simply with a couple of adhesive diamante.



I adhered the light part to my third ATC card with a halved portion of the Art deco border I stapled to the top of the card. Once the lamp part was set and well glued down I added some "Sepia" dimensional accents inside and left it to dry. Once it was dry it gave the look of old stained glass.


 I think this Art deco border die must be one of my favourite and most versatile dies ever!
