Take Time....ATC Shrine and ATC by Lynne

Well it's that TIME again! I love clocks as well as the concept of time in general and fell in love with this ATC shrine right away. It was so much fun to embellish and of course then I had to make a coordinating ATC (Artist's Trading Card)

I covered the shrine with patterned paper which I tore and inked.
For the door I primed it with acrylic paint then heat embossed here and there with Ranger Distress embossing powder in Vintage Photo. I used glue to adhere the powder so it would bubble when heated for an interesting texture. The colour was a bit more orange than I wanted so I rubbed over many of the areas with gold pigment ink. I dabbed on a bit of blue ink to coordinate with the blue in the papers. A few metal charms and some cheesecloth and tiny flowers completed the effect. I used the Tulip Scroll Corner piece to fashion a roof of sorts. This piece was just primed and heat embossed with the same powder but without the glue as I wanted the fine detail of the chipboard piece to stand out.

The ATC was made to coordinate with the shrine by fussy cutting some items from the paper used to cover the shrine. I also added a cluster of the same flowers. I used a small clock from the Pocket Watch set as well and simply rubbed it with gold ink.  I heat embossed the clock hands and added cheesecloth as on the shrine. The burlap leaves were used on both items as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by. There are several different themed ATC shrines in the store and I'm sure you could find several that will catch your eye. They also make wonderful little gift boxes or small storage boxes!
