I'm back .....
.....for the second of three posts today!
I've made three ATCs for a swap for the UK Stampers Forum (not just for crafters in the UK) this month were the theme is 'I've got butterflies'. There couldn't be a better theme for me as I might just have a 'few' butterfly stamps knocking around my craftroom, lol! Add to those the new Distress Oxide inks with which I am in love and I was in seventh heaven. The Forum is a lovely group, growing daily with beginners and experienced stampers alike. It's full of inspiration with some lovely swaps and challenges so why not look them up on Facebook.
They all started out with blended Oxide backgrounds which I sprinkled with water and dabbed with paper towel. Stamping was then done with Black Archival ink.
This first one simply had a few touches of Sakura gold sparkle pen before edging in Walnut Stain Oxide and adding a bit of Frantage on the corners and a Chit Chat word.
The second one had some of the colour removed with a wet paintbrush before once again adding a bit of subtle gold sparkle, walnut stain edging and Frantage.
The third one is my favourite I think. Same methods as the other two but with a few dots of white pen added as well.
I really enjoyed these quick makes and I like them so much I think I need to make three more for me, lol!
I'm entering them into a couple of lovely challenges....
Another post .....yes, 3 in one day, lol...... coming up later.
