Challenge: TIME FOR LOVE by Allie Gower

Hello out there, this is Allie from Well Trained Paper and I'm sharing my Challenge ATC with you.

Time for Love

I started with a Chipboard Coaster from Maya Road.

I painted a layer of clear tar gel from Golden and applied a napkin. (Note, peel apart any extra layers on the napkin, you just want the printed top layer). I also painted over that layer.

Then, I took a break. I watched an episode or two of Father Knows Best. LOL. Point being, let your napkin dry, dry, dry.

I sanded the edges and sides, and wiped down the ATC, I then stamped the Unity clock using Archival Ink. I allowed that to dry a bit as well. I spritzed the ATC with Perfect Pearls. Again, let dry.

I die cut the burlap heart using a scalloped heart die from Spellbinders Paper Arts. It is adhered with Beacon's 3-1 glue. I attached a Prima flower with the same adhesive, as well as the blue heart shaped rhinestone gem from Prima. I cut apart some pearl bling from Want2Scrap and attached that, and finally, I added a Maya Road Heart pin, along with a few beads.

Voila, a quick, (sorta quick) fun ATC.

Let's see what you do!


  1. OMG, Allie, did you mention previously that you hadn't made an ATC before??? This is gorgeous, girl!! you totally rocked the ATC challenge! Thanks for sharing!
