A Day of ATCs? - Day 113

On Day 85 of A year of ATCs? I made a set of ATCs to swap and the theme was
 "Ripped and Torn"

I have received the swaps...and here's the resulting pocket letter:

I have just made the next set to swap which stand as Day 113 of A Year of ATCs!

 Basically 9 ATCs comprising a rectangle of orange card matted with a background I made using bubble wrap and distress ink. I used spiced marmalade to add distress to the edges.
I then added the bird coloured with Zig real brush pens and cut out.
Finally I added bows and buttons in slightly different colourways.

The bird image is Whimsical Lily from Lost Coast Designs which I won as a prize some while ago in the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity.

I will link this ATC to the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity Challenge #35 - this bubble wrap background is a favourite of mine!

Happy Crafting!


  1. So adorable! Love the birds and the fun background.

  2. Fantastic Bird ATCs. That bubble wrap backing is cool. I tried it but mine was a bit of a mess. I think I put too much ink !!! :-(

  3. Thank you for joining the favorite background challenge at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity. The birds are so cute with bows and buttons.

  4. Love the birds.
    I've used the bubble wrap but need to
    get it out and use it again. Makes
    a fun background.
    thanks for sharing.

  5. Oh I love a nice bubble wrap background, and these are fab! Lil Lily looks wonderful with her buttons and bows, andthe bird buttons finish your atc's off perfectly. Thank you so much for joining in again with our challenge at Lost Coast Designs. Sue xx

  6. Beautiful soft background technique with Whimsical Lily! I love the whimsical bird stamps too - I have Whimsical Flora and Whimsical Amelia. So much fun and they really pop here! Thanks for joining the Lost Coast Design challenge!

  7. Love the fun bubble wrap background! And so glad you are enjoying your bird stamp prize for the last time you won! We are glad to have you back and playing along in the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity "Favorite Background Technique" challenge. :) Thanks for your great entry!
