Worn Out or tattered ATC

This months Stampotique challenge was 'Worn out or tattered'. This shabby chic, distressed sort of look is not my normal style, but hey, its good to go outside your comfort zone. One element of course remains : humour. My ATC :
I wanted to do a cameo but none of my Stampotique stamps had profiles - except the Old Timey Frog. So, here he is, featuring in his own cameo ATC. I included the handlebars on the bike because be looked like the Loch Ness Monster without them ! LOL. 

Lots of layers here, of pattered paper, lace, card stock etc, and it is all distressed and inked with walnut stain. I used liquid pearls around the frame and crackle glaze behind the frog. The letters are Tim Holtz letter stickers.

These ATC's are now winging their way to Australia and UK - hope my partners like them :)


  1. Such a clever idea, Nikki...love the distressed edges and the colours are fab too...

  2. Ooh Nikki, love love your shabby tag (despite I am not a shabby girl at all hahaha, but this one is so cute and funny!). Fab work as usual!
    Big hugs, Coco
