Cinco de Mayo ATCs

I made this set of ATCs recently for the Cinco de Mayo-themed swap at Wishful Thinking:



When I looked up Cinco de Mayo I found lots of images of dancers. They were wearing lovely dresses (like THIS one shown above). The dresses reminded me of THIS Hero Arts Circle Lace stamp. I paired it with THIS Cornish Heritage Farms Aged Sheet Music stamp (love the large 6" x 6" size since it easily covers an entire A2 card base!).

Here is a close-up:



Stamp(s): Hero Arts (S5319 Circle Lace); Cornish Heritage Farms (Aged Sheet Music)
Ink(s): Ranger (Distress Inks, several colors)
Paper(s): Strathmore (ATC Blanks)
Other: American Crafts (White Embossing Powder)


Thanks for looking! Comments are appreciated!

Hugs,
