Spotlight on ATCs

The Spotlight falls on ATCs for this week's challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and although some of the other dt members have made sets, I have made just one for this challenge - I quite enjoy making them and used to like swapping but I haven't made any for a while so it was fun doing this one. 

I used Dylusions spray inks applied with babywipes to create the background, then stamped, sponged and splodged on some more inks using a mask, a couple of stamps and some bottle tops to make it a bit more interesting. I stamped the PaperArtsy image on a separate piece of card and coloured it with a mix of distress ink and Promarkers then cut round it and stuck it onto the base card. Finally I added some handmade mesh paper which I  coloured with Promarker in the top corner to add texture.
Other challenges I'm entering: 
ATC Challenges - Windows or doors or anything goes
Allsorts - Free & easy 
Artistic Stampers - Use hot colours
Totally Papercrafts - Girly girl
Make it Monday - Anything goes
