Button Card ATC's

Here is a project I created using Sewing Notions stamps from Oxford Impressions. I made a box to hold a set of ATC's all based around the button card stamp in the set.

To make each ATC I started with a base covered with vintage French book text, added my stamped collage, then added buttons for a dimensional accent. I had a lot of fun combining the individual stamps into collages using layered masking. You have to think backwards though - start with your foreground image, then mask it with a post-it note cut to size and stamp your next image making that one look to be more in the background, and finally stamp the button card with all the other stamped images masked. You really can create a variety of collages with that simple technique. Here are the individual ATC's:

Your set of ATCs are gorgeous! Love that stamp set. Whenever I've tried the layered stamp look, I usually get it wrong first time! Thanks for the tip.
