ATC Monday - "Mustache"



Good morning and happy Monday y'all!  Today's ATC is very funny to me because it's somewhat of an oxymoron these days.  Mustaches are super trendy along with beards so they aren't very original right now.  However, you can be super original by what type of mustache you sport, or so my hubby tells me.  This one right here is correctly termed a "handlebar".  Or so I'm told. 

This ATC was made for a prompt swap.  As in - we were given a napkin printed with various bright mustaches and had to come up with something.  "Try it!  You'll love working with napkins." said Elizabeth.  Oh how she was wrong.  I'm not totally put off working with napkins for good but they are fiddly little bits of stuff!   

I collaged the napkin using Matte Medium to a blank white ATC base.  Once dry, I stenciled the sunglasses and mustache in black acrlyic using Faber-Castell's new Mixed Media Stencils, the 201 Collection.  I added a few highlights and outlines with my UB Signo pen and wrote "be ORIGINAL" with a Faber-Castell Pitt Pen.

I was so glad to be done with this set of cards that I couldn't wait to get them off to Elizabeth and have them out of my house!  Though looking back at them now I rather think they're kinda funky.  That's probably because I'm not having to fool with them any more!

That's all I've got for you today on the ATC front.  Tomorrow is the 1st day of the September edition of 30 Days of Lists.  I'll be posting my lists daily on Instagram and weekly here on the blog like I did in March.  Haven't signed up for 30 Days of Lists yet?  Run on over here and sign up real quick.  It's only $10 and you'll be glad you did!

I'll see y'all next time!

Until then,
