It's ATC time at Smudgy Antics

The start of a new challenge today over at Smudgy Antics, Really simple - make an ATC. A 2.5"x3.5" piece of art. What could be simpler than that? The hardest thing about it is choosing the stamps you'll use.
I chose 4 of the smaller stamps in the "Morte" rubber set and one of the larger for the background. Fabulous images drawn by Rick St Dennis exclusively for the Smeared Ink Rubber Club. I'm eagerly awaiting the second set and there are a further two sets coming out as well. More about them later.
Some paper piecing and a lot of fussy cutting here. The goblet and the bottle in the foreground were stamped onto vellum. The goblet's skull was cut from cream coloured card 3 times, each layer slightly smaller and layered up. The decanter - the liquid was cut from some green paper and layered behind and the skull on top layered on top. Gold miri card cut for the decanter's stand. The candle on the skull at the back is also layered up. The trio of decanters cut from another scrap. The wall of skulls stamped onto the ATC them distress inked before layering my pieces onto the ATC.
 This shows the layers better.
Some small gems (3mm and 1mm) glued to the goblet where the stamp has them depicted.

The other girls have worked their magic and made some fabulous ATC's for you to ogle. So go have a peek. Then come and link yours into our challenge at Smudgy Antics. See you there.
