Anything but a card challenge-ATC

This is my first post for the ABAC (Anything but a card )challenge blog. Thanks again to Susan for inviting me to join!

The challenge for the next 2 weeks is an ATC. No them. just make an ATC. Simple right? After making 25 ATC's for the Art retreat in Austin making one is a piece of cake!

The base is a scrap of Scrapbook paper, Out of Print by Basic Grey.I glued it onto a atc base that was already cut. I used some green craft paint and painted some of it onto a piece of bubble wrap and stamped it on the Scrapbook paper. Next I rummage through my stash and saw these rub-ons by Creative Imagination. I really never had an idea for this ATC. So once I used the Hawaii postmark it was sort of set up to be a beachy type ATC. 

I stamped the beach lady by Viva Las VegaStamps! on white cardstock with Black Memento ink pad. colored her with Prisma color pencils. Used Miracle tape to attach her to the ATC. I then Used some Mudd Puddles for the sand. The one I used is called Key Largo. I applied this with a pallet knife. While that was drying I traced some arrows from the Negatives of Grunge board elements I have. Cut them out to see which one I wanted to use. After I picked, I painted the arrow  the same green I used with the bubble wrap stamping. I wrote BAR in big letters on the arrow. I used foam tape on the arrow. I then stamped "I like being single..." on white cardstock. and cut the words and put that on the ATC with glossy accents. Lastly I put some glossy accents on the glasses of the lady.

Well thats it for me for this week! be sure to play along and upload you blog post to the ABAC blog!
