Stamping ATCs | Crafty Life

Being part of a DT is so much fun – you get to work with some amazing artists and share your work with a big audience. There are some downsides too…and it seems like I experienced them this month only to come up a winner at the end of it.

Stamping… I do use stamps in my projects but to add to the background. Stamps have never been the main feature of my work. They are important, don’t get me wrong, but they’re always in the background, never in the spotlight. You can imagine the size of my sigh when I saw Crafty Life’s February challenge theme… yeah, you guessed it – STAMPS. I left the project to the very last thinking that the deadline will motivate me and, most importantly, inspire me…oh, man…what a struggle that was! I tried stamping cards – nope! I tried stamping canvas – nope! I even attempted making art journal with stamps as the main focus – not a chance! So I thought of making something that I can entirely cover in stamps and be able to get away with it… ATC! And it worked!!!

oh, one more thing! Can you see those little, coin-like elements? They are the new Architextures by 7gypsies. So cool!!! More to come!
