I am trying to get myself back into the swing of things after spending a wonderful extended weekend with my sister in Texas. I don’t have a blog post on it yet, but if you head over to my Youtube channel I do have a VLOG of the weekend and our treasure hunting. You can find the video here: Weekend in Texas
Today I have a final set of ATC’s to share with you. When I went to the back to back retreat in March I had made a set of Tim Holtz Fairy Wing Atc’s and a set of Dina Wakley Media ATC’s. This post will be a share on how I made the Dina Waklely Media ATCs and I finally remembered to take some in-process photos for you. I promise I’m going to work on that, but you know how it is you get started and fly thru and then your done before you know it.
So for this piece I used:
1. A piece of Canson Watercolor Paper 11″ x 15″
2. I prepped it with clear gesso.
3. I then applied scribble sticks both dry at first and then dipped in water.
4. I dried the page well.
5. I then added some of the Dina Wakley Collage Tissue with Distress Collage Medium (I know now the Dina Wakley Gel Medium works much better to make her tissue transparent.
6. Once I dried that all again, I did splatters with the Dina Wakley Media paint in “Ancient”
7. Again I let that all dry and then cut the paper up into 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ cards.
I believe I made 18 out of one sheet of paper.
8. Next out came the Tim Holtz Tonic Studios Stamp Platform, my Distress Archival Ink in Black Soot and several of the Dina Wakley Media Stamps.
9. I did one image per card and then went back with the Dina Wakley Collage Tissue quote sheets to add quotes to each card.
10. When the cards were all dry I made borders using a black multiball pen.
This is a great way to use your favorite designer or to batch make cards if you have an event coming up. Start with a large sheet and make a massive background. It looks completely different once you have it all cut up.

Here are photos of the process:
I hope these mini treasures will inspire you to pull out some of your favorite stamp sets and get to creating. This is alway a great way to make batch mini presents or little thank you notes. If you an etsy shop owner wouldn’t one of these be fun to include for your customer as a treat! I can’t wait to see what you create, be sure to tag me on social media so I can see @sidestreetdesignllc.
