Fun With ATC's - Texture.

 I hope everybody had a great bank holiday weekend? Get much crafting done?
 Time is flying by at the moment, no idea where it is going.
 We are starting our new challenge over at Fun With ATC's, the theme this fortnight is Texture. Use any form of texture you like and we would love to see you join us.
Head on over to see what the rest of the DT have created for inspiration x
 The main ATC has been done with an Andy Skinner Technique from his Book of Ruination on line class and has been painted with Decoart acrylic paints, layering up colour with washes and dry brushing.
 The heart has been cut out with the Tim Holtz movers and shapers heart die, I stamped a text with a stamp from The Artistic Stamper and embossed with some white Frantage powder, it was then coloured with Distress inks and clear embossed over the top.
The word sticker was coloured on the edge with some distress inks too and is also from Tim Holtz.

As always thank you for stopping by, it is always great to have you here x
And of course, we would love to see you over at Fun With ATC's xx

I would like to enter this in to a challenge or two.

Our creative Corner have just started back up with an amazing new DT, their first theme is an Anything Goes challenge.

  4. Haven't been over in ages, time just flies! Love the texture of your ATC...I have a bowl of mashed up newspaper and PVA glue I could use this way, once it's painted it should look ok!

  12. Wow, Mark! This ATC is amazing! That background looks like what I would imagine the interior lining of a heart to look like. Don't know if that is what you were going for or not...but it's just so striking! Those blended reds into oranges are just gorgeous. That teal heart with the script writing across it really pops off of the card. And "imagine" simply outlined in the teal is the perfect embellishment...simple and perfect! Thanks so much for your post on FB. I so appreciate your vote of confidence! Love your work! <3 Candy
