Shaped ATC's

I belong to a small group that has various swaps and one of them was to make 3 shaped ATC's (Artist Trading Cards). In other words not the normal shape. I have finished them and mailed them off to the hostess.

Since I have been doing so many row houses lately, I decided to do the first one in the "house' shape and added some left over cuttlebug embossed pieces to the top. This was handmade background paper that I rubbed with copper rub and buff after embossing it with the Cuttlebug. The main paper is also handmade using dye inks, then stamped with a Stampscapes stamp. The image is from some da Vinci images courtesy of Trish B.

The middle card is a Magenta stamped image which I cut around and then added the picture with a page pebble; for dimension I used Crystal Lacquer.

The third (which I am not really enamoured with) is also handmade background paper (monoprinting) stamped with a portion of a Magenta & Tin Can Mall stamp . The little Angel Post stamp was made from a piece that I stamped with a Hearts in Touch stamp, coloured with Marshall's photo oil colors and then made into a sheet of postage stamps.
