ATCs:Kites and Bicycles

I have really come to enjoy making ATCs. The tiny space makes the design so much more challenging. This particular set of ATCs is for a swap with my Craft Enabler peeps. They are supposed to be fall themed, but I already had these planned out for the summer swap we didn't get to. We'll just have to pretend kites and bicycles are fall-ish!
Front and back of my ATCs are always a bit difficult to distinguish. Most people make batches of ATCs with all the same design. Since I do double sided ATCs I have decided that the front of my ATCs will be the same and the backs will be where I let my immagination go.
I've settled on an alphabet card style, illustrated with stamping.
Although I do the backs of my ATCs with different designs, I try to stick with a theme.
This time that theme was friendship. These Authentique word stickers had just the right sentiments.
For the most part I use Webster's Pages 6x6 papers for my ATCs. They have miniature motifs and patterns that really stand out with fussy cutting.
