Last month I participated in a challenge with my Collage Stuff group. We swapped three ATCs that had to have a postage stamp. That was the only requirement. I love mail art and postage stamps so I decided to participate. The fun thing about the Collage Stuff group is that the owner, Lisa, requires people to use something from her shop but it's not a huge monetary investment. She sells all kinds of cool collage materials so I often buy from her. You can visit her shop here.
All three of these ATCs were made with matboard ATC blanks I bought from Collage Stuff. It made the project super easy because I didn't have to measure and cut out a background.
For this one I used silver and blue trim from Collage Stuff.
For this one I used a gold bow from Collage Stuff. The hand is a piece of vintage Victorian scrap. I have purchased lots of repro Victorian scrap from Lisa.
The ivy leaves in the corners were purchased from Collage Stuff.
Collage Stuff has a Yahoo group that engages in the swaps. If you're a member you get special discounts and member only deals. The cards I got back were awesome! Here they are:

This is a wonderful group. I encourage you to check out Lisa's store and consider one of the monthly swaps.
