Joel and I spent some time in the craft room this afternoon. I wanted to make some Back to School ATCs for a swap I am in and for the most recent WICKED WEDNESDAY ATC CHALLENGE
I have a super cute September Sock Monkey digi from BUGABOO STAMPS so we decided to use that for our ATCs. We also thought it would be fun to make the ATCs look like chalkboards. We started with black cardstock and rubbed chalk all over it, then used a dry paper towel to remove the excess chalk.
I used Tim Holtz distress markers to colour my ATC, added ruler washi tape to the side and used the Picket Fence distress marker to write "Back 2 School" in the corner.
While he is not AT ALL excited about going back to school, Joel liked the idea of making a Back to school ATC...he used SU markers to colour his ATC and got a little more creative with the washi tape than I did. He also thought the sock monkey would enjoy playing basketball on the school yard, so he drew a basketball for him to play with.
Not bad for his very first attempt at an ATC...and I am pretty sure his colouring skillz are better than mine!!! LOL
We'd like to enter our ATC's into Wicked Wednesday #120 - Back to School
