Fall ATC 2

This is the second ATC I have created for the 2Ps Fall ATC swap. You can see the first one here. This ATC is basically a montage of all things Fall for me, the change in the color of the light, cooler weather moving in, big harvest moons, falling leaves, and, of course, Halloween.
Step 1. Cut cardboard to ATC size (2.5 x 3.5 inches). Remove the upper layer of the cardboard(mostly) to expose the ridges. Run the cardboard through the Sizzix machine to flatten. This creates a really interesting texture without the bulk.

Step 2. Cut a sun ray shaped mask from scrap paper. Place the mask along the diagonal of the ATC. Spray Sunflower Glimmer mist below the mask and Tiger Lily Glimmer mist above the mask.

Step 3. Stamp a flourish several times to create the background of the ATC. I used an Autumn Leaves stamp and Black StazOn.
Step 4. Punch a moon from scrap vellum (I used a 3-inch circle punch). Adhere along the left side of the ATC (I used the Xyron machine for even adhesive placement). Trim overhanging edges.
Step 5. Punch fall leaves from copper colored metal. Sand lightly to bring out the base metal color.
Step 6. Stamp a poison label stamp (mine is from Tim Holtz) on scrap canvas. Cut out and ink the edges with black ink. Fray the edges of the canvas if desired.
Step 7. Adhere the leaf as shown. Using Martha Stewart's scary fence punch, punch a fence shape out of black cardstock and adhere to the bottom of the ATC. Adhere the poison label to the bottom right corner of the ATC. Ink the edges of the ATC with black ink. Add a metal "Autumn" brad (from Recollections).
