Today it is my turn to show you another project for Roc. I had so much fun making this and I hope you like it. I keep seeing ATB's all over the internet. They are Artist Trading Blocks and I decided to try and make one too. And here it is :
Here is a close up of the Love birds eh... dogs:
This ATB was made from some cardboard I had lying around. I put masking tape all over it to create a bit of a pattern and then added some model paste through a stencil.
Next I coloured the whole thing with a Lindys Stampgang Flat Fabio. The colour is 'Pop Rock Purple'. A Flat Fabio is just an inkspray with no glitter in it. I the used a blending tool and Archival ink and accentuated the corners of the box and also the model paste. I also dripped some white Lindys on all the sides to create more interest, this one is called 'Frozen Jack Frost' and does have some glitter in it.
Next I glued on the 4 beads for the feet and the three on the top for the wire. I used gel medium for this. The wire was rolled around a knitting needle and then pulled out a bit.
It was then time to stamp. I used :
All of these stamps were stamped in white card (the dog was stamped once as he is and once reversed using a solid piece of rubber. You stamp on the rubber and then stamp the rubber on the paper) apart from the stacked love. I stamped that on tissue paper. Everything was coloured with a mixture of Copic Markers and pencils and glued on. Lastly I adhered the moustache on the one dog for a bit of fun...
Here are some more pictures:
The stacked boxes stamp is on both sides.
