All of these ATC's were featured in the April issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine. And if you haven't tried one yet, what are you waiting for? They are a fun way to be creative but also have the instant gratification of a quick project.
The first ATC was very simple to create. The background was inked with several colors of distress inks, ran through a Cuttlebug, then inked again with a darker color of distress ink. The second inking brings out the emobssed areas. Then the foreground area was stamped and inked, the edges were torn, and then a few beads were added to the corners.
The second ATC was stamped, then the background inked with several colors of distress inks, then the entire surface was coated with crackle paint.
This last ATC was created in a very similar manner. The background was again inked with several distress ink colors and then the images were stamped.
All three of these were created using very similar techniques, but the end product on each one is stunning and unique.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope I've inspired a but of creativity for you today.
