A quick post for a couple of atc's

Hello again everyone and thanks for stopping by, just a very quick post today, I have a couple of ATC's that I have coloured up with Copic's both images are digital images from Delicious Doodles the first ATC is called Gothic Fairy.The second image is called Ivy Queen.
These images are the perfect size for your ATC's they scale up/down perfectly and are ideal for me to get used to Copic's and play with different colour schemes without needing to do a great big project. They also take me back to being a kid and collecting all the different comic book trading cards.
 This is the secon Ivy Queen I have done the first one made its way to a blog friend for a sort of Xmas card, I really hate making cards ;)
This time I went for a much cooler colour scheme and wanted to go for almost the monochromatic look, I am quite pleased with the cool grey's but the warmer grey's are a little patchy.
Both of these images were printed onto crafting card coloured and then mounted onto mount board, I much prefer the chunky sturdy feel over a single sheet of card, it helps make them much more durable, they were also both given two coats of clear embossing powder, again this is something I have been doing, it really brings out the colours and details in the images and again helps protect them.
Thanks for stopping by, told you it would be quick today x

I would like to enter the both of the images into the challenge over at Delicious Doodles, their theme is 'Winter'
I have tried to go for cold Wintery  colours with both of these.


  1. Brilliant ATCs, you rock at the colouring and copics. Great idea to mount them on board and coat with clear UTEE. An idea I shall store in my files to try out :) Thx for the inspiration. Px

  2. Both are gorgeous Mark, lovely cool wintery colours and you certainly are a dab hand with the Copics now. I do mine on mountboard too but never thought to emboss them to protect them - great idea! Anne x

  3. Stunning ATC's. The first one reminds me on Avatar. Your colouring is brilliant. (:o)

  4. Great Atc s your colouring is fab!! Trace x

  5. They look lovely, as Elly says the first is very like Avatar or a blue meanie. Love Francesca

  6. Fabulous - I love your mountboard + embossing technique - it makes these into real, glowing delights! Fantastic colouring - love the subtle grays...

  8. These are exquisite, Mark! Fab coloring and great idea to mount them and add embossing. xxD

  9. Wonderful! They are both colored so beautifully. Such a great idea to clear emboss them too!
    Your altered cigar box is fabulous too! Love the 'rock' technique! And getting those boxes for FREE?! I need to look into this!
