Little Used Supplies ATC

The theme for 9ATC Group is Little Used Supplies. I choose to use my Gelli Plate, it is little used because early on I accidentally put a dent in it.  I made some prints with metallic paints on shiny black paper. Ran them through the Xyron machine.
I cut these prints into thin strips and adhered them onto black paper about 2.25" X 3.25"
I used white dye ink to stamp a bird image and the letters D-R-E-A-M onto the background.

I then colored the bird's eye with a gold metallic pen and the dots on the chest of the bird with a green metallic pen. I layered this onto white card stock to complete the ATC

Rust ATC

The theme for the 9 ATC Group is Rust.
I used a faux rust technique. First I ran black card stock in an embossing folder through a Cuttlebug to create the peacock image. Dabbed on brown craft paint and while the paint was wet, sprinkled on cinnamon. Pressed the cinnamon into the paint with my finger and let it dry.
After the faux rust had dried, I used sand paper to highlight the raised areas of the embossed image.

Next I added some green metallic ink to the peacock eyes, adhered a tiny red rhinestone to a "gold" metallic embellishment and glued to the image. Finished by adding some decorative ribbon to the bottom of the act.
