Stamp the back first with your ATC stamp and after that, cover the whole ATC with tissue paper. Distress the edges with Distress Ink. Find 3 similair images and distress them as well. Find a bigger scrap of paper, distress it and attach the image with a paperclip. Attach it to the ATC with glue. Use some nice stamps and add a lace trim. Add the cogs & word stickers or other embellishments, ink around the edges to give the ATC’s a nice frame and you’re done!
