The challenge for the next fortnight at Anything But A Card is to make an ATC using any theme and materials you fancy. Half of the team will be sharing their projects today and you can find them HERE. Don't forget the rest of the DT who will be joining the fun and showing us their inspiration next Sunday.
I'm fairly new to the world of ATC's but I have to say that I could get hooked on making them! The size is restricted but it's amazing just how much you can pack into such a small space. I originally planned to make one ATC but I got a bit carried away and ended up with three because it was such fun!
|Painted background combined with paint stamping, machine stitching and some stencilling. For this and the following ATC, the girl image was stamped onto a background which was stamped with a cog image and sponged with various distress inks.|
|This background was created with text die cuts, distress ink, stamping with versamark and mica powder and some stencilling.|
The same little girl and cog background. Some script stamping with versamark and gold mica adds interest.
The little flowers are punched shapes left over from a previous project. Some gilding paste was added to the edges to tie in with the mica powder.
Text diamond shaped die cuts are incorporated into the background along with more mica powder over stamping and some stencilling. Black pencil shading was added here and there to create depth.
Shrink plastic tile created with a Tim technique. The little punched flower is added to finish the piece.
You can see the various shades of Americana used in the background and the red archival stamping over the top.
A piece of the cog background was coated with gesso and the quote was stamped with black Americana acrylic.
Some punched flowers and twists of rusty wire finished the look.
Thank you so much for sticking with me and reaching the end. I loved making these little pieces and it was fun to use the same image yet try to create a different feel each time. What do you think?
What will you do for your ATC? I can't wait to see so get started and then link up at Anything But A Card!
