For this week's blogpost for AALL & Create I have made a trio of ATC's.
And here's how I made it :
I used a piece of watercolour paper for the ATC's. I cut it into cards after I coloured it with Distress Inks and added some Texture paste through a stencil.
Here is the coloured card for the ATC's. I also made a base from card board, book pages and ink to mount the finished ATC's on.
This lovely butterfly is going to be my focal point. I coloured it with the same Distress Oxides and a water brush. I glued the book paper onto some card stock before colouring and cutting it out to make it more sturdy.
I added some stamping to the cards and here you can just see the texture paste I used. It is transparent but it gives a nice detail to the cards.
Here you see everything finished. I used more book text and ribbon to add interest and I also used some metal wire behind the butterfly.
Behind the cards on the board is a piece of silk, again to add interest.
I have used the following stamps/stencil:
Stamp #80 - Lined
Stamp #45 - Butterfly
Stamp #6 Sentiments
