Fun With ATC's challenge, Try Something New
Ok, now on to the new challenge over at Fun With ATC;s, we are kicking off the new year with a 'Try Something New' chalenge, now your something new could be one of those stamps you got for Xmas, some new stains/paints/inks or even a new technique, something you have not tried at all or not tried for an ATC.
I have two ATC's to share today, the first one I decided to try something new for me, I will try and keep this short, the idea was to create a layered ATC with acetate and mica, a different stamp on each layer and some blended alcohol inks for some colour.It sort of worked and I learnt quite a lot for next time I have a go at making something like this (fiddly is not the word) the only problem came when trying to get a good pic, It should have been see through with the light shining through but all the pics looked pap so I attached it to a mount board cut ATC blank with some brads. If you look carefully you can see the mica fragment in the middle.
I used Stayzon Ink in black and white and stamps from Tim Holtz, my New stamp from Studio 490 and the cogs are from Paper Artsy.The metal cogs are also from Tim Holtz. The back ground was made with auqa,denim and white alcohol inks and blended together for the mottled look.
The second ATC was a little quicker, as I said in an earlier post it was my Xmas mission to get to grips with copic markers, I am happy with how things look now, But any advice/critique is always wanted.
The Image is a digi called Eva The Witch and is from my blog friend Teri who runs Delicious Doodles she has loads of stunning images. This is one of my Favourites from her range.
Again, Thank you all so much for stopping by,and thank you for all the words of encouragement and support last year, I look forward to seeing what you all come up with in the year to come.
Oh and of course, to see what our DT have been up to head over to Fun With ATC's to see their amazing creations, Whilst you are there why not enter, it would be great to see what you will come up with.
