CCM - Spotlight . ATC's

On the Crafty Cardmaker's Spotlight this week we are asking you to make an ATC, there is no topic, a chance for you to create whatever you wish. Please remember the size MUST be 2.5" x 3.5".
I started making ATC's in 2004, I still make and swap them within an ATC forum. I'm fortunate to have hundreds made by some very talented and creative friends. For this challenge I have made 3 unrelated, to show a few different techniques. Left -I made the background onto glossy card, by painting Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paints across the card, when dry, I stamped the flower image and quotation, added a metal butterfly. Bottom- I again used glossy card but this time I lightly sprayed light green, dark green and Golden Fish (orange). I then stamped the dragonfly, added the card to black card with the brads. Right- this is my first attempt at Steampunk, time I caught up with what's 'on trend'. The beauty of ATC’s is you can do no wrong, as long as the size is correct, it is an opportunity to experiment and create what you will.


  1. Love these ATCs. Going over to look at the challenge.

  2. Great job Caz - super 'treatments' of the ATC's.
