Paper Napkin ATC


Hi Everyone!

While I was at CHA, I saw an awesome demo done with paper napkins. My friend Ally Gower also inspires me with her napkin work. I decided to give it a go myself.
I found some awesome paper napkins at Hallmark just last night and decided to put them to use.
Over at Split Coast Stampers today, the IC324 challenge is inspired by a site called Creative Wallcovering.
Just so happens I had the perfect napkins!
I have only done a few ATCs but thought I would do one today. Here it is...


And here is the inspiration photo from Split Coast Stampers challenge...


Pretty close right? :)

You can see the napkin I used in this photo along with Helmar Decoupage which I used to adhere it to my chipboard.


I used 2 different Tim Holtz-Stampers Antonymous sets.
A stamp from the #CMS075 Ultimate Grunge set was used to stamp the checkerboard around the edges. I did it in Ranger Perfect Medium then dusted it with #664 Super Bronze - Perfect Pearls powder.
I used a stamp from the #CMS110 "Stuff To Say" set. I stamped it with Ranger's Archival Jet Black then heat embossed it with Ranger's clear embossing powder.
I embellished it with one of Tim Holtz's Idea-ology photo corners, a pretty Prima flower and Want2Scrap's -Black swirl rhinestones.

I would love to know what you think of my ATC!

Ooooh! That came out beautiful! Love how pretty the napkin makes the background! Something else I need to try! This afternoon I made a couple of those egg shell hearts you showed us a while back. They came out awesome and your tutorial was perfect! Thank so much!
