Stamper's Anonymous ATC Swap

I finally did a swap! Yes, this is the first one I have done. I like ATCs but I don't often make time to make them and I rarely have time to swap so these one time swaps are awesome.

I had a basic idea of what I wanted to do with this ATC, but I had no idea what colors I wanted to use. I stumbled across this cool piece of paper from what I think was an old K & Company stack while I was sorting scraps. I loved the colors and intended on incorporating the paper into the ATC. Well, the best intentions don't always translate into action even in art.

For this one I stamped the Dance Partner stamp on Barely Banana cardstock with coordinating ink. I then overstamped it slightly off with Old Olive ink. I then added the sentiment which was part of a larger stamp. I had isolated the "What You Do" using my Chocolate Chip marker.

My last step was to use my Photographic Studio stamp. I stamped the image on glossy paper with Timber Brown Stazon and added color using my blender pen. To fix the color, I clear embossed the whole thing and then cut out the two figures I wanted and affixed them to the ATC. I finally matted the whole thing on Chocolate Chip paper.
