Alcohol Ink ATC

 The theme for the 9ATC Group is Alcohol Inks. I used alcohol inks with blending solution on the tip of a plastic stick to create the dandelion heads. Used dye ink sponged onto the background. Gel pens were used to add highlights to the dandelions along with Distress glitter. Red alcohol ink was used to stamp the word sparkle and brown StazOn ink created the stems.

Shiny ATC

The theme for the 9ATC Group is Shiny. I used gold card stock for the base of the atc and ran it through a patterned embossing folder. Added a black ribbon that I glued some large glitter pieces on. Used the same gold card stock to stamp the face image using black StazOn ink. Cut out and added the face image over the ribbon.

Texture with Gesso ATC

The theme for the 9ATC Group is Texture through Gesso or Texture Paste. I used Gesso by sponging it on over a stencil covering card stock.

I allowed the Gesso to dry, this took a couple of hours.

I sprayed yellow and blue inks over the Gesso Texture and let it dry.

I added some embellishments. The blue strip was cut and the dragonflies were punched out of some paste paper I had previously made. The flower was chipboard, that I first inked thoroughly with black ink and after the ink dried, used reddish metallic rub-on over the surface and then ran through a swirl patterned embossing folder. Also added a "pearl" to the center of the flower.

The theme for 9ATC Group is Backgrounds made with natural ingredients. I used blackberries and smooshed them over card stock, let them dry and then brushed off any berry parts that were left on.
Used a blue Distress Paint to stamp on butterfly images over the backgrounds and let them dry.
Trimmed the ATCs, stamped flourishes onto the background with black StazOn ink, colored spots on the butterflies with a pink metallic gel pen, used a thin black Sharpie to outline the butterflies and their spot, added the word "dance" from a dictionary page, and layered onto black card stock.
