2016-04-07; bits & pieces atc

2016/04/07

My stamping friend Karen, sent me a few stamped backgrounds. Here are the two that I got a picture of. The piece I worked with today is the one on the left. It was quite dark so I tried gesso, stamping and spattering to see how it would look. A little too dark yet.

I ended up adding a layer of tissue, drywall tape and some stencil paste and it turned out looking like this. I have so far made 2 ATC’s using the center portion of the background. When I trimmed it up I was left with narrow strips of the decorated background. Rather than throw them away as I usually do, I put them on a 3rd ATC.

Here is what it turned out as:

I added a tiny ready made blue silk flower with pearl and some hand cut leaves.

Here you can see the texture, gold leaf lightly sprinkled and some chunky glitter. The wet paste will dry clear, so no worries. I always take photos when everything is drying or so it seems.

And that brings us back to ATC #3.

ATC’s 1 & 2 are ready to be mailed to my stamping friends that inspired the project. I will hold off on showing them until they’ve been received. I think both of them visit my craft journal/blog regularly and I don’t want to spoil it for them!
