This set of ATC (envelope and card) was made using Lost Coast Designs and used at the "skull appreciation day/event" that we had at the beginning of June
at the NEW blog for Challenges and events called :
"Lost Coast Portal to Creativity"
I made two envelopes...perfect to give away on "The day of day", which is coming in November 2nd
using a border punch ...
I glued 2 panels and made the envelopes for the ATC...
I colored the image, previously stamped on vellum, with "Copic" markers...
and here it is the ATC,
the stamp from "Lost Coast designs" is a skull called "Picado Skull" which was stamped in vellum
to mimic the tissue paper that Mexicans use to decorate their altars during this feativity..
this stamp is perfect to use in ATC's, it has the right size for ATC's
Fun Fact about "Papel picado":
"perforated paper" is a Mexican Folk art/decorative craft made out of paper cuts into elaborate designs from tissue paper. Traditionally made entirely by hand
|photo taken from the internet|
These can be displayed for Easter, Christmas, weddings, quinceañeras, baptisms...any celebration.
But Papel picado is specailly made for Day of the Dead to decorate the altars during this special day!
My card was featured
at the regular Design Team "LCD" blog:
Thanks for the company
