New ATC Challenges!

**For the Blog Hop and Fairy Challenge please scroll down**

Hey y'all!  I am here to share some exciting news.  If you haven't heard yet, the amazingly sweet and talented Jenn from Stampin' Angel Jenn has started a new challenge blog!  It's called Wicked Wednesday Weekly ATC Challenges.  How awesome is that?  A challenge blog for just ATCs!  I don't know about y'all, but I am just thrilled. Now, this blog actually started about a month ago...but I've been a little bit MIA for a while, so I missed it until now.  Well, I fully intend to start making up for that now!  =D

This week's challenge is to create an angel ATC.  A little while ago I purchased the Sugar 'n' Spice images from Tiddly Inks.  I just love these images, and had printed them and colored them...but not yet created anything.  So, what better way to use one than for my first ATC entry?  The image was almost too big for the ATC, but I think I got it to fit alright...


For this ATC I used the adorable Angel Spice.  Isn't she awesome?  I love her hair.  She actually came with two flying hearts, but I ran out of room so had to leave the second one off.  I colored Angel with Copics, except for her lips and eyes, which are colored with Spica Markers.  The base of the ATC is a Bicycle Joker playing card, which I covered with my background paper.  The dp I think is from BoBunny.  I outlined the clouds with Stickles to make them stand out a little more.  The ticket is a stamp from Stampin' Up that I stamped, outline with a teal Le Pen and wrote my sentiment in the middle.  Then the ticket was also outlined with Stickles.

I was pretty happy with how this one turned out...especially her hair!  =D  I usually have such a hard time with ATCs....I always feel mine are too plain, but if I embellish them too much I feel like they're too heavy and overdone.  Then again, I have the same problem with my cards.  LOL 

I am entering this ATC in the following challenges:
Wicked Wednesday: Getting Angelic
Digital Tuesday: Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope to see you again soon! =D  By the way....if y'all haven't gone through my blog hop or challenge yet, you have until Saturday at midnight.  Lots of prizes, including gift certificates to some of my favorite companies (including Tiddly Inks).  Hope you check it out!
