RC003: Think Outside the ATC

It's time for another Rebel Challenge on the RRD blog! Like all our Rebel Challenges, this one has a bit of a twist. We are asking you to

Think Outside
the ATC

What does that mean? Create an Artist Trading Card (2.5" x 3.5") and let some element protrude beyond its borders.

1) You can use any products to participate in this challenge. You do not have to use Rogue Redhead Designs products but it would be fabulous if you did!

2) Your submission must include some stamping.

3) Please read the directions for the challenge. We like to add a twist here and there. Your submission must be an ATC (2.5" x 3.5") which has an element which extends beyond the borders of the ATC. You may, if you wish, mount your ATC on a card or mixed media project as long as it follows our other guidelines.

4) Links that are not to a single post (ie only to a general blog post) will not be accepted.

5) All submission posts need to include a link back to this challenge to be eligible for the challenge prize.

One challenge winner will be drawn randomly from the qualified submissions for a $15.00 US voucher at the RRD Etsy store.

This challenge will end on October 9, 2011. The winner will be announced on October 12, 2011.

I had quite a bit of fun with this one! Check out what I made!

Stamps: Waving Girl (Beach Babes) and
Miss You (
Relish Reading)

Stamps: Reading Girl, sentiment and
Almanac Background (
Relish Reading)

For this one, I made the ATC and then attached it to a coordinating card! I used Joanne's great technique of using the Sandy Beach background to create instant distress.

Stamps: Cosmos Blossom, checker border and sentiments (Floriculture)
and Sandy Beach Background (Beach Babes)

We hope you have some fun and play along!
