Two insect ATC's

 Hello everyone, 

For this week's AALL & Create project I have made a simple project of 2 ATC's. I am still in the middle of reorganising my craft room and it is taking a little longer than anticipated. Anyway here they are:

Here's how I made them:

On two pieces of 2,5 x 3,5" watercolour paper I stamped the two bugs. I used VersaFine Clair ink as I wanted to use water based products to colour. 

First I coloured the bugs using watercolour markers. 

Next I smooshed Distress Oxide Ink on my craft sheet and used a water brush to colour around the bugs. I used Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio and Salvaged Patina. 

When everything had dried I added some texture paste through a stencil. I had to touch it up with white paint as the texture paste soaks up the colour from underneath. 

Next, I added some pieces of washitape and toned them down again with white paint. 

Lastly I mounted them on some card stock to make them sturdier. 

I have used the following products:

Stamp #550 - Stink Bug by Bipasha Bk
Stamp #551 - Weaver Spider by Bipasha Bk

Stencil: #124 - Lotza Diamondz by Autour de Mwa

Washi tape: #21 - Beachrock by Janet Klein

  1. Trop belles tes ATC, ellesen plairait énormément à mon neveu fan d'insectes ! biz

  2. I'm definitely not a bug fan normally, Corrie, but the textural aspect of these and the fabulous layering really do the trick!
