July Project Parade Challenge - ATC's

Hi Verve readers!! Are you ready for another Project Parade Challenge? It's an easy one!! This month's challenge is to create an ATC, an Artist Trading Card. Not sure what this is? Check out Jen's tutorial HERE. Read all the way to the bottom of this post to find out how to win $15 in Verve Bucks to spend at the Verve Store!

My ATC features the set Feeling Groovy. It makes me sing!

I usually don't love creating with purple, but for some reason it was calling to me today. So I embossed the flowers with clear embossing powder in Rose Red, So Saffron, and Elegant Eggplant. After cutting the flowers out, I arranged them on my ATC around the sentiment, popping them up on pop dots.

After creating my ATC, I decided to turn it into a full card.

I love the simple look...totally focuses on the amazing stamps! I also added a little piercing to make the image POP.

Soooo...wanna know how to win $15 in Verve Bucks? All you have to do is play in this Vervalicious challenge with us by creating your own Artist Trading Card! Leave a comment with a link to your project on this post by 12:00 pm (noon) Eastern Time on July 31st, and you will be entered for a chance to win! Using Verve stamps is not a requirement, although it doubles your chance of winning. We will have two winners, one randomly drawn from a pool of all entries, the other will be selected as our favorite from all the projects using Verve stamps. Both winners will receive $15 in Verve Bucks. We will announce the winners later that day.

So, it's time to try something new...let your creativity be your guide! If you upload to Splitcoast, please use the keyword VVPP04 so we can all see your creations!
