Hope that the world is treating you well today!
This month I joined in on an ATC swap that Lindsay Mason organised. The theme was WATER and I had to make three ATC’S. Of course I made four so I could keep one too!
I started with white card and smeared the paint on mainly using my fingers. I used the Paperartsy fresco finish paints in Bora Bora, Guacamole and Baltic Blue.
Next I used some Lost Lagoon ink to stamp a Timeless Textures stamp all over to add some further pattern.
I then added the little splatter stamps from the same set using gesso just on one end (it turned out to be the bottom).
Then I took the Dotty Wave stencil and applied the transparent gloss medium through in a diagonal wave. I then left it to dry overnight.
I love the effect this created of rainfall… perfect for the theme!
I stamped the girl in the rain (I’ve had this stamp a long long time and have no idea where I got it originally!) in archival onto the cards and then again onto some sheet music. I coloured in the umbrella and coat using Distress crayons on the sheet music. Then cut it out and added it to the card.
I love the bright pop of colour this gave.
I decided to cut down the image a little to mount it onto a piece of sturdier cardstock. So I took a quarter of an inch off both sides, rounded the corners and then edged it with silver paint. I cut the card to size and edged that in the silver too and layered it up.
I printed the title off and adhered it using matt medium.
Looking forward to seeing the artwork I get back. Fun!
