Asian themed card

The theme for stamp club is Asian. I choose the Haiku bunny stamp and stamped it with black ink. Placed a mask of the rabbit over the stamped rabbit and sponged red Distress Ink over the exposed card stock.

 Highlighted some of the stamped image with a Gold Gelly Roll pen. cut out the image and layered it on gold metallic card stock over a strip of Origami paper on black card stock and layered all onto a gold card. Used the gold Gelly Roll pen over a stencil on the lower right of the card.

Comfort Quilts

I really like this pattern that has 16 and 4 square blocks. I used oriental fabrics for these blocks.
 Fun way to use striped fabric:
 Couple of scrappy quilts using up leftover 5" squares

I sprayed a green Starburst, a blue Starburst and a bronze Color Mist sprays over narrow corrugated card stock and let dry.














Used a copper colored metallic rub-on to highlight the edges and some of the ribbings of the ATC.
Also used the copper colored metallic rub-on to color a snowflake embellishment.


Added the snowflake and some bluish green rhinestones to the ATC:

Veggie Print ATC

 The theme for the 9ATC Group is Vegetable or Fruit Print.
I decided to try to make a roller print using corn on the cob. I spread some red and yellow acrylic paint along with some gold Lumiere Paint on a craft sheet. Then rolled a piece of cooked corn on the cob through the paints and then onto card stock.
The paint laid down was very uneven, so I decided to then use the corn on the cob as a "roller" and spread several layers of these paints over the card stock.











I got several backgrounds using this method and let the paints dry thoroughly.

Later, I used a raw piece of corn on the cob and ran it over a black India Ink pad, then rolled it onto the left side of the ATC. I then used this same ink pad to color the edges of the ATC.
I added some orange fibers and ribbon along with a small bird charm to complete the ATC:
