Think Monday Think ATC - Handwriting



This is my ATC for this week's challenge on Think Monday Think ATC, the theme of which is handwriting.

I started by making an alcohol inked background with a bit of silver mixative, then stamped the handwriting background in teal Stazon ink. I added the paper at the corners, (which also has handwriting on it but it doesn't show up very much on the finished ATC), stamped the postmarks then added the main image, the bus ticket, and the tag which I've coloured using inks. I hand wrote the word "Beautiful" on the tag and added some fibres through the top. Finally I added the button at the top right, which also has fibres threaded through it.
