Snarky ATC cards with So Suzy Stamps
I was on a shopping spree the other day and bought several snarky stamps over at So Suzy Stamps. When they arrived I was giggling my butt of and tried to come up with some cards. But my mojo was kind of non existing last week, so nothing happened. Till I looked at one of my larger art journals. The size of one page is perfect for 9 snarky ATC cards.

So I started by stamping onto the page and adding some old book snippets.

After a layer of Gesso, I added some color with Gelatos and heavy body acrylic paint. I also added some texture using black and white paint through several different stencils. Honestly, it looked like a hot mess at this stage πŸ˜›

I let that dry for a bit and added a second layer of Gesso and paint on top.

Now I cut them apart, distressed the edges with the Tim Holtz distress tool and stamped the sentiments on each of the ATC cards. Thanks to my Misti, I was able to stamp it several times onto the same spot.

At the end I adhered them onto a piece of black card stock and added some marks with a white gel pen and little embellishments.
Assembling Snarky ATC cards

Now I have a set of snarky ATC cards that I can hand out when a colleague or a friend has a bad day. I might use one of them as office decoration πŸ˜›
