summer lovin' sailboat ATC

Created this summer lovin' ATC using bead, cardstock, die cut, embossing powder, ink, recycled cologne pkg, ribbon, stamp & tag.

Used a whale bead next to tag with sentiment on it. Cardstock & scrapbook papers colors are my fav color combo of blues & yellow. Used Tim Holtz Tiny Tags dfor die cut of tag. Used clear embossing powder & VersaMark ink to stamp sentiment "summer lovin'" on tag.

Used foam adhesives on the whale bead, tag & cut out sailboat to give depth dimension to the pieces.
