WT208 my first ATC

Hello and happy Thursday! I hope you are having a great day with a little bit of creating in it!

Today I would like to show you an Artist Trading Card I made for today's Ways to Use it challenges on SCS. This is my very first time making one. I used another Susie Squirrel image from the Digital Stamp Oasis . I printed this one on 90lb watercolor paper, wanted to use another type of paper to see how it takes the ink. Works great!
Image is colored with alcohol markers (copic, blick studio and prisma). I did some paper piercing along 3 sides, and added real red grosgrain ribbon to the left side along with some silver cord. The sentiment was made on my computer, and punched out using a word window punch, folded in half and attached to the ATC. To finish it off, I added a little bit of stickles, used a flower from my flower trio punch, and added some silver circle charms.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Ellie!

Very cute!!! Explain the digital images to me, you just send a copy of the image and then your DT would print those off? I am just not clear! Sorry to ask such a dumb question!
