Two ATCs with two ATC sets - I can't figure out if that's squared or quadrupled!

There are two new releases coming in the All Things Considered line that definitely have the smell of autumn about them! I have two ATC projects to share with you today, one from each set.
This is a fast and easy ATC made with the Fall Harvest set. The handwritten bill of sale is perfectly sized to matt onto an ATC-sized piece. All I did was overstamp the crow in the corn and add tiny touches of shading with a couple of Copics. I trimmed to leave the bird's tail "out of the box" for a bit of movement. Finally, I stamped the corn label on a separate piece, coloured it and stapled to the top. Super fast!

Stamps (Cornish Heritage Farms):
Fall Harvest (All Things Considered line - releasing Tuesday Sept 1st)

Simply Smooth Vanilla

Brilliance by Tsukineko (Graphite Black)
Tim Holtz Distress ink by Ranger (Vintage Photo)

Copic Markers

This second one is a little bit more involved but I had great fun making it! The tag is a "piece work" design with areas to record dates and quantities picked. I stamped two and then cut a slit in the gingham layer of the ATC so the second tag slips in there for safe keeping but is removable so you could write a secret message on the back for the recipient.

The apple advertisement is coloured with Prismacolor pencils on textured watercolour paper and lightly blended with OMS - it gives a lovely intense colour!

There are more fab designs in each of these sets - I'll share a couple more projects tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by.
