On 9atc Group, the theme is "Rust". I started by adhering torn, old style newsprint paper onto card stock, and glued on mica dust around the edges.
Adhered foil flashing/ventilation tape on card stock and cut into heart shapes. Painted on verdigris Patina paint over the service, let dry. Then ran the hearts through an embossing folder, then patted on rust Patina paint over the raised areas.
Added some decorative feathers and a strip of glittery copper decorative tape. Adhered the painted heart with brads that I pounded and dabbed on some rust Patina paint.
For this month's stamp club, we were to make cards with the theme "Watercolor". I decided to do a variation of the stamped watercolor effects technique. I used a solid floral stamp and colored on the stamp with three colors of Distress Markers (any dye ink markers will work). Instead of spritzing with water, I spritzed the stamp with a Perfect Pearls mist (water and perfect pearls mixed together in a mini mister). Then I pressed the stamp into water color paper and let dry. I layered the stamped watercolor paper onto purple paper and then white card.
The theme for the 9ATC Group is Door, Arches, Openings. I decided to make the Starry Sky Background for the inside of my ATC. Started by sponging on different blue and purple Distress inks with a dauber over matte card stock. Make sure the different colors show.
Next, completely cover the card with black Distress ink and let dry.
Splatter water over the card, let stand for a moment then daub with a paper towel.
Then splatter wet Perfect Pearls over the card and let dry completely. Okay to heat set.
Stamped a saying with VersaMark ink, covered with white embossing powder and het set.
For the cover, stamped a gated door image with black StazOn ink onto brown colored vellum and let dry. Cut in half and trimmed the image.
Attached the vellum to the ATC with gold colored staples and used a gold colored Pearl Pen to add "knobs" to the image. ATC with the "doors" closed:
Made some black and white Thank You cards. Layered black card stock over a white card. Cut out a smaller piece of white card stock and dry embossed in an embossing folder. Stamped "thank on a small piece of black card stock and embossed with white embossing powder and het set. Stamped "You" with black ink on white card stock, these were attached with a black and a white large brad.
