Welcome to our  Sin City ATC Blog Hop.  Each of our Design team members will be sharing a set of ATC with you.  Be sure to comment on each blog and then head back over to the Sin City Blog to let them know which ATC stamp you would like to win!  Don't forget to like our Facebook Page and YouTube Channel.

Supplies needed: 
Distress Markers: Hickory Smoke, Frayed Burlap, Fossilized Amber, Iced Spruce, Black Soot, Wild Honey, Ground Espresso, Festive Berries, Faded Jeans, Old Paper, Brushed Corduroy, Tea Dye, Dusty Concord
Distress Ink: Weathered Wood, Victorian Velvet
Copic Markers:BG45, B21, G24, YG67, Y15, YR04, E33

 To create these ATC, I started by  stamping the Lion and the Scarecrow onto a piece of scrap paper.  I then cut both of the images out to create a mask.
 I then stamped the Yellow Brick Road on all three ATC, stamping over the masks for the lion and scarecrow. For the Scarecrow I chose to use my Distress Markers to colors directly on the stamp and then stamped the image.

I did use a black journaling pen to fill in any parts of the road that did not stamp,

Since the Tin Man was walking up the road I stamped him "on top" of the Yellow Brick Road.

 I colored the tin man using my Hickory Smoke Distress Marker and a water brush to spread out the ink.
To color the Yellow Brick Road, I outlined each brick with my Fossilized Amber Distress Marker and then spread the ink with my water brush.  

 The lion was colored with Brushed Corduroy and Tea Dye Distress Markers

I then inked the backgrounds with my distress tool and Weathered Wood Distress Ink Pad.  I then stamped OZ over the backgrounds.

The create the sayings I stamped the quotes onto white cardstock and then cut the quotes apart and attached to each card.

 To create the back of each card I stamped the  ATC stamp and colored the image with Copic Markers

 Here is a close up of each ATC and the Back.

Hope you are inspired!  Be sure to check out the rest of the DT's projects, and make sure you leave me some love and stop back to the Sincity stamps blog and tell them which of the four ATC you like best.  This is your change to win one!
