Making ATCs with Gelli Print Backgrounds

Hello all, today I got a wonderful goodie package from my friend Terri Richardson. I always love getting packages from her, she sends me the most wonderful art and little trinkets. In this package she sent me some ATC backgrounds and this particular one caught my eye.

I don't know how she created the background but I could picture it with Kira Nicholas' stamp

I have some people that I want to send an ATC to so I decided to create two more of my own as well.

I have some gelli print background that I made awhile back and I use them when I see the need. I decided to grab some up and cut them down to ATC size. These are the two I ended up with

I also wanted to make my own wash tape with some gelli prints so I cut some to the size I wanted and wrote the word Hello on it

My friend Terri also sent me this wonderful homemade stencil and I used it on one of my background along with some archival ink

I just love this stencil, it's my new favorite!

I added some doodles with a white paint pen and a black pitt pen
I stamped my monster onto some white card stock and colored him with copic markers

Here are my finished ATCs

These will be going to a new home next week. I hope you have a happy day and thanks once again for stopping by
