3 ATC's in Spring Color


I have been inspired by the beautiful spring colors that are out in the wild and in this month's challenge. Mushrooms are amazing and tastes good.

I have made my own stamp with rubber bands wrapped around a piece of wood. It has been used for the grass in these ATCs, a method which I saw a blog post from England.
As a start, I painted all ATCs with white gesso, then I used the stamp set Collage Mix and Mushrooms with my chosen colors.




I have used: the stamp set Collage Mix and Mushrooms
Paint On paper to the ATC's
White gesso and sky acrylic paint from Dina Wakley
Distress ink broken china, gathered twigs, black soot, peeled paint and scattered straw
Words from the computer.

I hope you have been inspired to participate in our spring challenge and I wish you a good day
Hugs, Susan

  1. Lovely ATC's, Susan! The text stamp in the back make them look like book pages from a nature yournal where you hand printed with real mushrooms (which is how I made the stamps - from my nature prints). The way you made the grass is such a cool idea, I have to try that! Thank you so much, darling!
