My first ATC

There's a new challenge over at  Outlawz Twisted Thursday and this week's optional twist is to make an ATC. I've used an image from Stitchy Bear Designs - our Sponsor for October.

This is my first go at making an ATC. I've always struggled with tags, due to the small space to work with, but making an ATC for some reason I didn't find as hard. Maybe because its rectangular, I don't know... But I can tell you it's a great project for using some scraps. I've got tons to work with...

I made my ATC base out of black cardstock. I used a stencil to make the background, added perfect perals for a nice shiny finish. The striped paper is a piece of leftover from a Maja Design paper. The sentiment is made using my Dymo. Image colored with Promarkers and a white gel pen to make the fur, which doesn't show well in the photo. Added two pearls onto sequins from my stash.

This is also for these challenges:
Digi Choosday Challenge - #39 - Something New (stencil and making an ATC)
Di's Digis Designs - Animals acting like humans
Sweet Stampin - Use a non-white base

Hello, Pia! This is so cute and adorable! You know how much I love kitties! I have this cute image too and I remember making a shaker card with it for a DT project. You did a wonderful job on your first ATC. I've only made one before - I never know what to do with them after they're done! But it was fun to make - such a small space to work on. Beautiful job!

FANTASTIC!!!! Is it not fun to try something different for a change? You did it and I'm so proud of you. What is nice is you can always add it to a card by putting it in a pocket as something a little special. That Kitty is just so darn cute.
Hugs, Pat♥
