ANYTHING GOES......

............. At Simon Says Stamp and Show and this week I thought I would try something a little different for me and create 3 vintage ATC's.
My vintage ATC's were cut using the ATC & Corners die from Manila Card stock and decorated with vintage corset images which I found on-line, ageing with vintage photo Distress Ink. Add into the mix vintage Lace Trim and buttons adding to the vintage feel along with letters added to Jump Rings for added dimension.

My first ATC has a selection of vintage corset images which I coloured with vintage photo Distress Ink adding a little machine stitching for added interest.  I added cream buttons, adding natural twine to each for further interest. I also added a mini frame (there is a fabulous set HERE)  for added dimension and to highlight one of the images. I also coloured the image a little with vintage photo ink to give it that aged feel.
I also added a couple of jewels to my bodices, a tiny detail but I think it just adds to the interest and adds yet more dimension. I added CORSET to jump rings to complete, adhered with Glossy Accents.
My second ATC has machine stitching added to the edges and again has been aged with vintage photo ink but this time around I have added a vintage lace trim along with buttons and some metal flowers (there are some perfect ones HERE).
Once again I added jewels to the back of my bodice and Melissa Frances cream pearls to the front. I am really enjoying ATC's at the moment, a little space that you can create such a big impact, love them.
The third and final ATC is one of my favourites as I love the images and the little frame works perfectly with the female images.  Vintage trim, buttons and flowers have been added once again along with those letters added to jump rings.
For more great ideas please pop over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog and take a look at my fellow team members they have created some inspirational projects. Remember there is also the chance to win a $50 prize from Simon Says Stamp.  I always look forward to seeing your creations each week.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, much appreciated.  Enjoy your week. Tracy x x

Tracy, I so love these ATCs! And...I was lucky enough to have gotten the last one (one of your favorites) in the swap! YAY! These are all so wonderful! I love the images in the background. Love the "CORSET" lettering done in the jump rings. Love the little frames you've added to highlight an image and also add texture. Your work is always so well thought out and detailed! LOVE THEM ALL! <3 Candy

Oh, yay for Anything Goes, and yay for these ATCs. They're utterly gorgeous. Loving the simplicity of Kraft, black and ivory, to let the details really shine out. Delectable, and so covetable!
