A few new ATCs for a swap

This post is going to be quick. It's late. I'm tired, and making some dumb mistakes! Here are three ATCs I made for a swap. I'm getting the hang of it, I think. Let me know if I'm far off the mark, and any suggestions to make them better will be appreciated!!

Thanks for looking!

This one is stamped with the Magenta stamp that I love so much, Mother and Child. The background is Silken Mist, done with Twinkling H20s.

This one is done by painting the cardstock first. As it dried, I crumpled up the tissue paper and smoothed it out. I stamped this Starving Artistamps Artful Inkables image onto the tissue and let it dry. Then colored in with Gelly Roll pens. I slapped some different pieces of phone book papers over the card, painted over them with the same yellow/brown color, then with extra thick gel medium, I stuck the tissue paper on the card. When it dried, I added a few leaves around for a little extra effect, added the cord, and voila!

This image came from AlteredPages. It was a transparency I purchased last week. LOVE them!! The base is done using the silken mist technique, stamped on some ledger paper (from Blockhead Stamps) with a stamp from Starving Artistamps. The frame was made with my Big Shot using Cuttlebug dies. Going to bed now. Please let me know what you think! I'm new at ATCs and feel like I'm starting to get it, but I need some feedback. Thank you all and good night!!

I've never been in an ATC swap before so I can't give any advice on what they are supposed to be, etc. But I can say that these are lovely. Especially the gorgeous colours in the top one.
hugs, Tracy

So happy I found your blog this morning. These ATC's are inspiring. I'd love to hear more about the spray you made for shimmer.
