Here's a couple of A.T.C's I made recently - I was having a bit of a vintage inspired phase (which I think I'm still in). The left is me practicing making my own collage and the one on the right was done for a swap. Both used photo stamps.
Here's something that I did a little while back - as close as I get to scrapbooking this is. I think it's too pretty to hide inside a book - so it's been on the wall until K made her own one to display. Stamps used: Stampington and amazing creations Inks used: white brilliance Techniques used: painted clipboard metal painted with neo opaque
The challenge at Innovative Stamp Creations Blog this past week was to make a card using this sketch here. I have to say I did not like it at all - It took me to the darkside (using preprinted papers) but without it I wouldn't have this card, which I do like in real life.
and guess what technique I used for the butterfly...
Yep - you guessed it - more resist.
Stamps used: ISC "about me" inks used:versamark and distress faded jeans, black soot and shabby shutters techniques used: pre-printed papers from 7gypsies, prismacolor pencils, powder embossing resist.
Stamps used: ISC "about me" and "Atc elements II" Rubbadubbadoo "Classic lady" inks used: Distress, versamark and versafine black techniques used: resist - powder emboss, sponging
Earlier stages: This was done the same as the "fly" atc below - using some different stamps for a return for a 1-4-1 swap. I'm already planning how I'll do it different next time. I like this one - but I can see it going further too. I've decided to try out some bleach on the face as I really like the look of the one below that I've made with masking (I'm now also bleaching the neck and when that's finished I'll see what I need to do after that) see above
I love the way this one has turned out! Really love it! I think I'll play some more with colours...
