Worn and Tattered ATC Trade: Old Timey Frog

Here's the second ATC made when I took a piece of 140 lb. Mixed Media cardstock (Strathmore), cut two 2.25" x 3.25" pieces from it, applied Media Gesso (DecoArt) heavily to one piece, pressed the second piece of cardstock onto the wet gesso, left it for a few seconds, then pulled it away which left a lovely texture on both pieces. 

After the Media Gesso dried,  Old Timey Frog (Kira Nichols) was stamped with Jet Black Archival ink (Ranger). Old Timey Frog and the background were colored with a combination of Distress markers (Ranger) and some old Zig Photo Twin markers (EK Success).  

A Post-It Note was applied over the the base of the image and the Barcode (France Papillon) was  stamped with Leaf Green Archival ink (Ranger).

Just keep on keepin' on (Kate Crane) was stamped with Jet Black Archival ink, cut apart, and edged with Black Distress ink (Ranger) . The edges of the image panel were tattered, then the card was matted with black cardstock.

Green and silver metallic cardstock was die-cut with the Tiny Gears die (Memory Box) and added to the back wheel of the cycle.

Unfortunately, I forgot to snap a photo of the card that accompanied this atc on its trip to Canada, but it was posted on Facebook!

Thanks for visiting!

    Not sure that I have seen all that and your second ATC on FB yet, sorry... I find always difficult to be everywhere and especially at the moment (I'm still asking how the others do to be so present on FB, their blog, and creative ladies at the same time haha :))) Well.. that's just me, probably a very slow lady!
    Hugs again, take care
