ATCs: Cinema

This is my ATC first swap with a very crafty and talented lady, Dawn ... I am really excited about this. I love ATCs ... it is such a nice way to use bits and pieces and to try new things before using them on bigger projects.
The theme chosen by Dawn: Cinema was a real challengeespecially as a strict requirement was that each ATC needs to have at least one bit of stamping ... Luckily it fitted in with the stamps I had acquired just beforehand ... the At the Movies stamp set from Stampers Anonymous. It is my very first set from this company ... at first I was a bit sceptical but I must say the stamps are really superb.

What would a visit to the cinema be without popcorn? I love popcorn ... I even make it myself at home from time to time! The background is a camera image from the Graphics Fairy. The popcorn pattern is stamped on top using Brilliance ink. The finishing touch are the little squares with stamped Studio g letters.

The background is a collection of movie images from Art Freebies ... the ticket is stamped on kraft paper and attached with an eylet and Tim Holtz filmstrip ribbon (sorry, this is not very visible)

What would be a movie without a filmstar ... layered on a stamped cinema program and cut nestabilities shapes, embellished with Tim Holtz filmstrip ribbon and, of course, some blings.

It was great fun to make the ATCs and I hope that Dawn likes them. Next months theme is: flowers and I am really looking forward to it ... it fits so nicely with spring and all the flowers around us. Thank you, Dawn, for organizing this swap! Petra.
