Nina's cardboard ATCs

Nina says, KAYA!

My profuse apologies for not being able to join the KAYA! challenges for a looong while. Please know that I've always followed the challenges and have just been so amazed at the talent of Pinay scrappers. Thanks so much for the inspiration this month, Marian, that forced to me actually make it to the last challenge of the year.
Happy holidays, Pinoy scrapbookers!

Green Color Kit - Gauche Alchemy; stickers - Making Memories; adhesive - gel medium, Ranger Glossy Accents; embossing powder - Ranger; others - acrylic paint, pizza box my order from GA came in, pearl beads from a chain from an old GA kit.
Techniques used:
I've been playing around with cardboard lately and I realized that they'd make a fun background for ATCs. I also cut out Christmas-themed shapes from them and embossed them with gold embossing powder. I originally painted the corrugated part of the cardboard but it turned out to be purple smooshy mess. Thank goodness I turned them over and found this funky splattered paint background which you see here.
About me:
Scrapbookers, stamper and altered artist trying desperately to catch up to what's left of the year and homeschooling.
