My First "Styrafoam" ATC... Yep Made with Styrafoam.....

I'm in an ATC Swap here on one of the blogs....The them is a "Spring" theme, and I've have been having a ton of fun making them.  This is my 3 set of Atc's for this swap and will be making another 5 atcs for a total of twenty.  I was cleaning my stamps and laying them on a styrafoam plate to drain and dry them.  I looked at the plate when I was drying my stamps off and thought... "*Light bulb Moment*"...ggg  I bet I can use this for my Atc's.  And I did.
I used gesso on the front to give it some tooth, painted and inked and added the embellishments.  What do you think?  Oh, and a tip/hint... If you don't have any shrink plastic and want a cheap way to try some... Well.....drum rollllllllllllllllllll...You can stamp on the styrafoam and ink and etc... then take your Heatgun and zap the styrafoam piece and it will shrink.   I am going to show you that piece in a video that I will be doing later tonight.  ggg
Leave a comment if you like and let me know what you think of the ATC...  Thanks for looking. :-)
