Take a piece of cardboard from a box larger than an ATC & separate the front from the back. You are after the ridges in the middle.

Squirt 2 or 3 colors of craft paint onto your craft mat or wax paper & spread it around a little. You want to be able to see that there are different colors.

Now lay your cardboard on top of the paint & then lay on your ATC (2 1/2 x 3 1/2) size cardstock. You will have paint ridges on your cardstock.

Let the paint dry & finish the ATC anyway you want. Make sure some of your paint background shows.

Add a sturdy backing & add your SB info. Mail in a protective sleeve.

I used 2 boxes to get one to peel back nicely for me. I used 3 colors of craft paint & smeared them just a little. I absolutely love the look on the ATC. Will definitely do this one again.
