Masks/Stencils, Timeless Textures

For ATC’S sake … 5, 6, 7

Today I have three ATC’S that all started from the same base but all are very different. 

The base was some cardstock I had wiped off a stencil on where I had used iridescent medium. This left a lovely dotty background which worked perfectly as a resist too! 

So to all of them I added Distress ink in shabby shutters and then on two I also added peeled paint and on the other old linen. Then started building up the ATC’S. 

This one I added a strip of green paper and then the beautiful butterfly I found in the embellishment box. then I added a little tag that I stamped on and then added the ribbon with added coloured staple.

The final touches were to add the stamping of some splotches using old linen. 

OK the second one, this one I added some embossed silver tape, hessian and a little image I found. Then I dug out the gilding flakes and added those as a border to the piece. 

And the final one… i went a bit fun and funky. I added a strip of both apple patterned paper and green paper. I also added the faux stitching detail down it.

The image is one I got on a swap… just so cute. So although it’s not exactly seasonal it works so well with the paper and the background I had to use it. 

So seven days into the challenge and 7 ATC’S made. On track for 365 in the year.. just 358 left to go! worried? Nah. 

Happy crafting !

  1. Well on track and what fab pieces. Love the addition of the gilding flakes on the middle one. Add some magic. Looking forward to seeing more if them. Don’t forget to post them or I will miss them. Xx
