happy thoughts ATC

Hi everyone! I hope your Monday is going well – another weekend bites the dust, lol! They sure are going by fast! I’ve popped on real quick today to share a pretty ATC I whipped up this morning for The Outlawz Challenges! I’m actually playing in three challenges with this ATC – the first challenge I’m entering is the Tuesday Color Challenge where Sherry West Art is the sponsor and we’re using this photo for inspiration:

I used water-based neon Karin brushmarkers and played on just about every color in the inspiration photo. I love bright colors and I especially love these neon colors! The next challenge this ATC is going into is the Twisted Thursday Challenge which is Anything Goes with a twist of Rounded Corners. And finally I’ll enter it into the Festive Fridays Challenge with an Anything Goes theme. Our sponsor is Fred She Said and challenge participants can choose from Christmas, Flowers, Pets, Birthday or Anything Goes themes.

I used an awesome zentangle clear stamp from STAMPlorations, trimmed it and rounded the corners. I colored it with the neon brushmarkers, ran a black marker around the edge, and then splattered black gesso mixed with just a tad bit of water over it for a little interest. I added a clear sticker sentiment from a STAMPlorations sampler pack. These clear stickers are so cool and easy to use!

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! And I know quite a few coffee-loving people who don’t think happy thoughts until they have their coffee, lol!
