"Strength of My Life" ATC by Tracey Sabella

Hi everyone! It's Tracey back to share a new project featuring Donna's fabulous products. I wanted to do something that would brighten my day when I see it and came up with this sweet ATC. This is my first attempt to try out an ATC size project. I hope you enjoy it! 

"Strength of My Life"

Tips and Techniques
I grunged up one of Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® 3D Foam Swirls by sprinkling with her Clearsnap Twinkle Dust Glitter and Jasmine Mix'd Media Inx Embossing Powder and heat set. For a finishing touch, I rubbed it lightly with Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blue Pigment Powder.

I created two of Donna's Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms flowers. One in ivory mulberry paper and the other with a typeset print paper. I've filled in with some tattered lace and a bit of the looped lace from Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Lace Ribbons. The lace is colored with her Clearsnap Smooch Spritz and Pigment Powders.

This encouraging sentiment is stamped with Clearsnap/Colorbox Leather Mix'd Media Inx then heat embossed with coordinating Mix'd Media Inx Embossing Powder to really pop. The Leather Embossing Powder has a wonderful coppery metallic sheen.

Here's another snippet of distressed and colored lace. The video tutorial for my Girlie Grunge Denim Rose includes my process for altering the lace. You can view that video HERE.

I bought this pack of artist trading cards a long time ago and never realized they have embossed designs on them. I brushed the card with Donna's Sea Breeze Smooch Spritz to reveal the detailed, girlie embossing and rubbed her Brown Pigment Powder mixed with water along the edges.

So the next time you need a little pick me up, or a quick gift, try grabbing
Donna's fabulous products and create your own ATC.

  6. Beautiful as always Tracey! I can't believe that is your first ATC. I don't do them often (basically only when I am in swaps for crops I am attending) and I personally find it difficult to work with such a tiny area. I am a 12x12 gal for sure. You rocked it!
