Back in July, my friend and Two Girls and a Kit partner Carrie text me and invited me to take part in an ATC swap with 4 of her other crafty friends. I'll be honest, my response text went something like: "Sure! But remind me again what an ATC is?" Haha.
She wanted the ATC cards to be 3x4 size so that we could incorporate them into our Project Life albums and I was so in love with the idea. The theme was summer and for some reason my mind immediately went to flamingo's. I'm not sure if it's because we never made it to the beach or if it's the awesome pink's and oranges that flamingo's remind me of, but either way I was sold.
I knew that I wanted to use watercoloring and embossing paste and I wanted my cards to have lots of different textures. I'm also pretty addicted to distress inks right now so I gathered up some supplies and came up with this fun and summery card!
You can watch the video below or go to my YouTube channel and view it there! A list of all the supplies that I used can be found underneath the video.
I love this project so much that I am considering hosting a swap on my YouTube channel. Leave a comment here or on my channel if you would be interested!
