Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight - ATCs

Over at the Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight Challenge blog we are focusing on ATCs.  They are Artist Trading Cards and are made to trade (NEVER sold).  They measure 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches (you can make them any shape with as many folds but they must always measure 3.5 x 2.5 when folded).  They are an ideal size to try out new ideas too.
I have used stamps from the Paper Artsy Bricks and Mortar sets for my ATC.  For the main background I used card that had been sponged with Brilliance Pearlescence inks (Lavender and Lime) and stamped the little arch directly onto this.  Then I stamped the houses and flowers on card that had been coloured with Starburst Stains (Lavender Mountain Gold), added some Sakura Stardust pen highlights and cut them out, then popped them onto my ATC.
