Love ATC's

Good Morning,
I thought I would share some LOVE ATC's with you this morning that I made for a swap
For the first one I used hammered cardstock and used the direct to paper technique with fired brick and black soot distress ink, layered up onto red and black card. The hearts are a Bee Crafty Polymer Stamp that I stamped onto hammered card after I had gone over with fired  brick distress ink, I then cut out mounted on 3D foam and glazed using the simply white glue and left to dry overnight, I used the Love scallop stamped onto white card and cut out, I did also go over it with a clear Wink of Stella, but you cant really see it in the picture.
The tinman was done using the Wizard of Oz tinman from Bee Crafty. I dylusioned a background with postbox red and lemon zest and stamps the brick wall negative backdrop stamp on and layered onto black card. The tinman was stamped using memento tuxedo black and shaded using an HB pencil, I cut round him (very carefully) and mounted him using 3D foam, I added his very own circle sentiment and layered up, the heart in the centre is stamped in fired brick and glazed then layered up on top, it also has Wink of Stella highlights.
I hope you like them

The Village, Distress Inks and Watercolour Pencils

Good Morning All,
This is the creation I made the other night using the fab Village stamps from Bee Crafty.
First of all I used Distress inks and a blending tool to create the background I used Salty Ocean, Shaded Lilac for the sky and Mowed Lawn and evergreen bough for the ground. The houses and trees were stamped onto white card and coloured using Watercolour pencils. I cut the houses and trees out and layered them up with 3D foam which gives this some lovely dimension.

I hope you like it

This Months ATC swap

Good Morning All, I thought I'd share with you the ATC's I've made for a swap I'm in.
ATC's are so much fun to make, you know how I love my twinchies but ATC's are fab too and as they are a little bit bigger you can go with a few more techniques too.
ATC No 1 Shoot for the Moon.
I stamped the Banksy Balloon Girl onto Card using Black Archival, then went over using Faded Jeans Distress Ink, and cut around, I also did this with the Shoot For the Moon Sm .
For the back I dylusioned a piece of white Ranger Stamping Card Stock using Lime Zest, Squeezed Orange and London Fog, once dry I embossed the Circle Lattice template from Inkables using my Grand Calibur (this template does also fit a big shot) I went around the edges using White Distress Paint. The balloons were glossed using Ranger Inkssentials Glossy Accents
ATC No 2 Life & Rain
I stamped the Life & Rain Stamp using Faded Jeans onto a Bo Bunny left over, cut the message into 3 and inked the edged direct from the pad. The backing was made using Lime Zest, London Fog and Vibrant Turquoise Dylusions and then embossed using the Basket Weave Inkable template, I then used the Faded Jeans Direct from ad again to go around the edge. The balloon is from the Banksy Love Hill Stamp, which was also stamped using faded jeans. The raindrops we added using Glossy Accents.
I hope you like them and if you'd like to see them in the flesh I made an extra set to stay in the shop :)
