It's Only Black and White - Artist Trading Cards

Blackbird by Tim Holtz for S.A.
Good morning everyone and welcome back to another ATC Monday!  Today I am sharing an ATC set I made for a Black and White swap.

I was thoroughly inspired to do this ATC by Tim Holtz's Components ATC stamps, particularly "Blackbird".  I didn't have enough time to order that stamp and complete my ATCs by the deadline so I improvised.  I took several different Tim Holtz clear stamp sets and stamped using Archival Ink onto a Mixed Media paper base.

The three stamps sets I used were "The Journey", "Urban Grunge", and "French Marketplace".  I tried to replicate the original Blackbird stamp as much as possible with what I had on hand.  And I have to say, I'm pretty pleased with the results!  Not that I won't be ordering that adorable Blackbird stamp, but I managed to get through this swap at least without ordering anything new!

I hope you all have a great week.  I'm off to play in the rain and try to get my creative muses flowing!
