The theme for 9ATC Group is Reflection/Mirror. I decided to do a reflection theme. Stamped a tree image on the upper 2/3 area of glossy ATC with black India Ink. Then stamped the same image with the same ink onto a piece of acetate. Immediately flipped the stamped acetate onto the lower area of the ATC and rubbed the back of the acetate to transfer the ink onto the ATC creating a "reflection" on the original image.
Used a large sponge dauber with a yellow Distress Ink to create an inked sun onto the ATC, used the same dauber to lightly ink a reflecting sun on the reflected tree image. Heat set the ink.
Used small sponges to ink orange and red Distress Inks around the sun, blending these colors, then heat set.
Used more sponges to ink on purple and blue Distress Inks to complete the background colors and heat set.
Stamped a large "crackle" background stamp with black India ink over the entire ATC. Used gold StazOn Metallic ink on a splatter background stamp over the ATC, used this same gold ink to color the edges of the ATC.
To finish the ATC, used a blue Distress Ink marker to draw a line between the upper and lower areas of the ATC and darkened the blue ink in the top section. Added 2 yellow rhinestones.
