We are just entering the second week of our latest challenge over at Anything But A Card, the theme Is ATC's. That's it, you can create any style and use any subject just as long as it is an ATC, Simples x
Stop on by ABAC to see what else the DT have created.
I bought one for the new Lynne Perrella stamp sets last week, I love the new range, I am a big fan of the oriental stylings and art, and picked this set as I thought this image was perfect for an ATC.
This is the first one I made, nice and simple,the ATC's have been cut from mount board, I sprayed them with Dylusion sprays stamped the image with archival ink and went round the edge with a little black soot Distress ink.
It was given two coats of clear embossing powder to finish off. I picked these coin embellishments up at my local craft store and used a bit of leather to tie them round my ATC.
I started by stamping the image this time on to the white mount board ATC. I then painted in the blue circles on her face with broken china distress ink. when that was dry I used some Matte glue n seal with a fine brush to carefully paint her face. I left her eye and her lips un-covered. The Dylusions were then used, Because of the glue n seal I could just wipe away the over spray with a damp bit of kitchen towl.
The next step was a calculated bit of pot luck, It could have easily ruined the ATC.I sprayed a little bit of Blue Dylusions right at the top of the ATC and dabbed it dry, I then put out a little splodge of white acrylic paint onto my craft mat and swiped the corner of the ATC through it and rubbed it face down around the craft mat.its a very thin layer of paint and it drew up some of the Dylusions colour. I used a Kanji Stencil and some Dream Weaver paste,knowing that it would also draw up some of their colour.
The edges were gone round again with some black soot distress ink tofinish it off. No clear emboss as I really like the shabby look of this one. The paint gives a look of torn paper or maybe enevn an old fresco? Ok might be pushing my luck there ;)
So if you have never made an ATC before or weather you have made hundreds, we would love to see you join us at Anything But A Card.
And as always a great big thank you for stopping by, your comments and visits are very much appreciated x
