Getting Grungy with Pattern Basics

Good Monday Morning everyone,

ATC's using Pattern Basics Brights Notebook paper
If you are looking for a way to create those totally cool and hip grungy looking ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) or tags that are so popular today, but don't have the time or energy to make them using all those fancy inking techniques, then why not try letting your Pattern Basics papers do the work for you? I picked up a couple of the scraps of brights notebook paper I had left over from some of my layouts and simply inked the edges and stamped.

How easy was that?! They look like I spent days on them, but in reality it only took me an hour to cut the base papers, trim the notebook Pattern Basics papers, tear some handmade Evergreen papers and attach the assorted embellishments.

I used Club Scrap's Hybrid Inks in Tangerine, Spruce, and Earth for stamping the Memoirs, Papillon, and Centennial Classic UM images.

So get out your favorite flavor of Pattern Basics and make your own grungy creation.

Never got any from GHM, you can order some up for yourself HERE

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

    2. thank you, I've been away from paper crafting far to long!

  2. Now that, I might actually be able to handle!

  3. VERY, VERY cool, Julie! Thanks for sharing!

  4. These are great, Julie! Love the combination of papers--especially seeing the handmade from Evergreen. It has such a deep, rich color and looks so nice with the Brights paper.
