A Little Bit of Fall Magic

Today's project is a set of ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) which feature the Sweet November A Little Bit of Magic set of tiny fairies. You might remember these from this summer here and here. I really wanted to do these in a fall theme too and ATCs seemed a perfect way to use all nine of them.

I first stamped them and then drew in some long sleeves more befitting of the fall weather with my Copic Multi-liner pen. Since I had nine girls to color, I limited my hair colors to blond, brown or red as well as the clothing to three color schemes which matched the Simple Stories Harvest Lane patterned paper. Once colored with Copics, I fussy cut them all out. To make the ATCs I used a kraft base and a dark brown mat. Each ATC centered around one of the mini flash cards from the 6x6 pad. Other common elements include a paper button, a heart shape and either a mini doily or a tree and of course one of the super cute teeny tiny fairies. If you look close you will find a couple of them with an acorn cut with the C.C. Designs Acorn Cutters set.

Here are the individual photos:

You will notice no bulk on these ATCs for a good reason. I am giving these away and wanted them to fit in a regular mailing envelope requiring no extra postage. I am offering these to the first nine people who email me at nthom100(at)gmail(dot)com. Please specify a first and second choice and I will try my best to get one of those to you if still available. (These are all gone). Otherwise I will substitute. International readers are welcome to participate. When you make your request, also include your name and address.
