Treasure Life

Hello everyone,

For today's AALL & Create project I have made a trio of ATC's. When I started this project I knew what stamps I wanted to use and that I wanted to make ATC's. Apart from that, I just played !

And here's how :

The Mixed Media paper I used was coloured with Lindy's Stamping sprays. I used the ones without sparkle for this. Next I used the 'Weathered Tiles' stencil and Distress Oxides in similar colours to add some interest. 

Next I cut the paper into three ATC sized pieces, making sure to pick the nicest bits. I then stamped the background using the same Distress Oxide inks and Archival ink in grey and black. 

Next I stamped the images I was going to use on the cards and also on another piece of MM paper. 

I added modelling paste which I later coloured whiter because I didn't expect it to dry this dull. lol I did try to colour it first with my Inktense pencils but I didn't like that. 

Colouring the images before cutting them out. 

Here you can see my attempt to colour the model paste. Not a success... I cut out the images and adhered them over the top of the stamp on the cards. I then matted the sentiments onto black card stock and added them to the cards too. 

I then mounted all three cards on pattern paper and made a little board to stick them on. I used more pattern paper to glue onto the cardboard to make it look a little nicer.
