Kelsey's Metallic Cardstock lesson was the inspiration for this ATC - "Steam Punk". Using Kelsey's method (go to her blog for instructions, KO...OK?) I have then run the cardstock through the cuttlebug machine using a 'cog' embossing folder. I have then sanded over the top to bring out the embossing. The picture has been mounted onto chipboard and edged with gold before it has been added using tiny screw brads. I have then added the Idea-ology 'Sprockets & Gears as well as two game spinners form the same range. The title is on Metallic tape, which I have stamped using typeset punches.

The next three pictures are of a couple of fun ATCs, dedicated to the HBO series 'True Blood'.

'Erik and Bill' are ATCs that open. Stamped with a new stamp I got from Stampitcrazy on both sides, taking care to try and match up the image, so that the door panels will be seen when the doors open. I have then spritzed with Glimmer Mist in 'Choc Cherries' and then used a white gel pen to add the highlights. I then cut the bottom, centre and part of the way around the top of the doors so that they can be opened. Attaching two small jumper rings with brads has created the door 'handles' and the addition of the crucifix give it a 'goth' feel.

(With the doors shut.)

Happy Crafting :-)
