The Beatles ATC Swap ~ inspired by Vera Lane Studio images

Hi everyone! There is a fun Artist Trading Card swap going on on the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group for the month of June. We are to use a Beatles song or song lyric to inspire our ATC (2.5x3.5 inches) and after June 24, we will be assigned swap partners. Janet Klein, the artist behind Vera Lane Studio, has designed two fabulous digi sets featuring the Fab Four and  wonderful Beatles lyrics: George and Ringo and John and Paul.

I have used Paul from the later set paired with his hippie girlfriend, Paz, from the Peace Out stamp set. I thought they made a lovely couple and suited the song lyric, When I'm 64. Both are coloured with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and fussy cut. The background for the atc is cardstock spritzed with yellow Lindy's Starburst sprays and stencilled/stamped with Tiger Lily Archival Ink. A small strip of torn music paper grounds them. The atc design was completed with a black puffy heart, a doodled border, and black Big Brush Pen to edge it.

Thanks for joining Paul, Paz, and me today. We would love it if you decided to participate in the Vera Lane Studio Beatles swap. It's always so exciting to receive happy mail and to know that something you create finds a good home in another part of the world. To check out the other entries over the month of June, be sure to visit the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group and go to the photo album for the swap. I can't wait to see what others create!

Life is good; so is art.
