ATC’s to US

Made four RAK’s this week which are going to be flying over to the US very soon.

US ATC 01Used a Crafty Individuals Postcard stamp and coloured with Walnut Stain Distress Inks. Used Paper Artsy stamp from Hot Pick Plate 1005 on the ATC base.

US ATC 02Used a crown die cut from my Pazzle Inspiration machine, the car is a Paper Artsy stamp from Hot Pick Plate 1008. The decoration for the crown was part of another stamp from the 1008 stamp plate.  Used Vintage Photo, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Inks to colour the base. 

US ATC 05Used Dawn Bibby Woodland Stamp sets here, love the adorable little owl the lovely swirly tree and the ‘tweet tweet’ saying.  Used Distress Inks and Cosmic Shimmer mica sprays for the ATC base.

US ATC 03&04These two have to be my favourites this time around…  One of the bases was left white the other was a combination of distress inks and Cosmic Shimmer mica sprays to create a sunset look.  The stamps are from Crafty Individuals and Creative Expressions. I also used Tim Holtz Dabbers in Black to stamp the trees. 

Tried out a new technique for me but a very old one for most other crafters. It was great fun to apply the ink onto the stamp, just dabbed away until i felt there was enough paint to produce an image. Both times the image turned out differently as i applied pressure onto the stamping block.  I like the slightly haphazard way they turned out, sort of mystical…

Thanks for dropping by and would love to read your comments:-)
