Spring Fever ATC

Over on the ARTchix Studio Yahoo Group there is a Bi-Weekly Lotto for ATCs (artist trading cards) created on a theme. This time the theme was Spring Fever! Taking a nod and inspiration from the group's moderator Cindy McMath, I chose one of the images from ARTchix Studio's Hats in Bloom collage sheet. So much FUN!!
I used a piece of silk satin as my base from Mirah's Crafts in their 'mint cooler' shades. I backed it with a piece of watercolor paper, 2.5 x 3.5". My xyron adhesive machine was used to attach everything . . . running the watercolor paper through first and attaching it to the back of the silk satin. I used a flower stamp from CatsLife Press and VersaCraft ink in a variety of colors to stamp on the silk. My heat gun dried & set the ink. The curious woman is from the hats in Bloom sheet and the words are from the Her Words sheet.
I must admit these challenges push me a little to create and i think it's a good thing. How about you? Does it work that way for you?
