Special Bombshell Hump Day Hop--DT ATCs!

Bombshell Stamps' Design Team decided to exchange ATCs with each other. It took us a while but thanks to PinkStar, aka Steph, we did it! Once the cards were sent out and received, we decided that we needed to hold a special Bombshell Hump Day Hop to show 'em off.

Here's what all of my ATCs looked like all together:

Here's a close up of mine:

I used Bombshell's Homeward Bound set to create my ATC. First I computer generated the quote that I used, printed it 6-up, then stamped the ship over the quote, and cut out the ATCs to size. I colored the image and background with Copic markers. When I was done, I stamped the compass with VersaMark and used clear embossing powder to heat set the images.

Just in case you're interested, here's the quote that I used:
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain

Here's the list of the DT members, who participated in the swap and are showing off their goods!
