My First ATC Challenge

I also make ATCs (artist trading cards), and I found an ATC challenge blog, Wicked Wednesdays, so i am going to try that.

This week's challenge is to do a Full Moon ATC, so here is my entry:

I call it Crow Moon. (My husband pointed out that I should have called it Raven Moon, because my last name, Corby, means "raven," but I've already written Crow Moon on the label, so that's that.)

The moon is punched from DCVW glitter paper. I punched a corresponding hole in the black cardstock and fit the moon into it, so it would lie flat and smooth.  I fussy-cut the tree and raven from a Recollections stamp. It was quite a production.

I wondered if it needed more, but no, I like the stark look of it.  Rather Halloweeny I think.

If you can't tell, the card is propped up against the front of my Macintosh computer.  I couldn't get a good shot of it lying flat.  I never knew the Mac had those air grilles on the bottom.  The camera catches thing the eye does not. :)
