"Shine" ATC by: Trudy Sjolander

 Hi Everyone!
True :D here, and I'm so excited to be posting my first ever project as a new Want2Scrap designer!
The new Want2Scrap gang has a very special project in the works for a very special cause. You will want to keep checking back here to find out more info about it as we get closer to the event. ;)
Though, I can't share many details about it yet, I CAN share a project I created for it!
This ATC (Artist Trading Card) was created using one of  Want2Scrap's new Chipboard ATCs. 


The pretty Glittered Teal Chipboard and Glittered Writing Cardstock are both from The Robin's Nest who are one of our wonderful cross promotional partners. 

I cut a 2.5"x3.5" piece of the glittered chipboard and adhered it to the Want2Scrap ATC. Then I simply tore a corner from the designer paper, inked the edges, and adhered it. I used some letter stamps to ink and emboss the "Shine" sentiment, then inked around the edges of the entire card.
I used a store-bought flower that had a different center that didn't work for what I wanted,  so guess what?
I pulled the center and added one of the beautiful Self-Adhesive 72 Count Le Creme Pearls from Want2Scrap!  I inked the edges of the flower to "grunge" it up a bit.
And to bling it up a little more, I added a couple of pieces of  Want2Scrap's Le Creme Finesse Swirls Pearls.

Remember to check back often to see what the rest of the amazing designers are creating to inspire you with, and to find out more about our special event ;)  ;)

Thanks so much for dropping by to share my first W2S post!
I would love to know what you think about my ATC or the pretty bling I used on it! :)
