Quick Halloween ATC Cards

Hey Bloggers! I'm back with more halloween fun.

 I have some quick Halloween ATC's to share with you today. 

To color the background use the wrinkle free distress technique by Tim. This is one of my all time favorite techniques. Apply ink directly to your kraft sheet, spritz with water until ringlets form then drag your ATC's through the ink. 

Dry with a Heat Tool. Repeat the step from above and layer ink until you achieve the desired look. 

Stamp the images with Jet Black Archival ink from the mini blueprint set. I love these new blueprint images from Tim, this mini set includes Fall, Halloween and Christmas. 

Ink the edges of the cards with Black Soot Distress Ink on an ink Blending Tool. Highlight the lettering with a white pen this really makes the words pop! 

I also stamped the image on a scrap of manilla card stock and layered it with pop dots to my ATC. Add some Idea-ology, for this card I added the 31 Plaquette.  

To make a quick card mount the ATC's to a card. 

Have a great weekend!
