ATC - Woohoo Coffee Break

Hello, everybody! It's Day 3 of the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I will have a few coffee-themed projects to share today! I'll share them in separate blog posts.

The first is an ATC, or artist trading card, measuring 2.5" x 3.5". ATCs are great to include in happy mail, and I also enjoy putting together nine of them to make a pocket letter. If all goes well, then I should be able to share a completed coffee-themed pocket letter before the hop is over! If you're curious about ATCs, you can read more about them here.

This cute image came from a book I found at a thrift store. I created the background with the ink smooshing technique using Distress Inks (Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry).  I also used a doily die, butterfly punch, planner stamps, and gems from my stash.

I would also like to support the following challenges:
Crafter's Castle AG Optional Share a Technique (ink smooshing) 3/3 C10;
Creative Knockouts Furry Friends 1/2 C8;
Happy Little Stampers AG with Dies UE;
If You Give a Crafter a Cookie Pets Inspiration Photo 3/5;
Incy Wincy ATC, Tag or Bookmark 3/5;
Jo's Scrap Shack AG 3/3;
SUYP Cats Only Furrything Goes UE

Thank you for looking at my ATC! Wishing you a joyful day!
