I first cut my 6x6 Black Mat Board into ATC sized (2-1/2" x 3-1/2") pieces. I like to use something heavy, like mat board or chipboard, as a base. It allows me to put heavier embellishments on my background without it collapsing under the weight, and even if I don't use anything heavy, I just like the feel.
I used gel medium to glue the Spooky Paper 12x12 to each ATC, reversing the paper on some for variety.
On the Boo ATC below, I fussy cut the phrenology head, added color with my Drawing Art Set, and glued it to the ATC. I also fussy cut the leg bone and column top, glueing to the ATC. A small scrap of chevron print was glued below the head, a strip of German scrap border along the side, and tiny alphabet stickers to spell BOO. I used the colored pencils to add shadows around the images, adding depth.
For the Skulls ATC, I added a strip of German scrap border along the side, along with tiny alphabet stickers to spell SKULLS. I colored and fussy cut the column, adhering along the right side. I stamped the Stacked Skulls with black StazOn ink and colored with the colored pencils, which I also used to add shadows around the images, adding depth.
