Inktense, Derwent

Artful ATC swap (For ATC’S sake… 44 and 45)


Here are the two ATC’S I made for the Artful ATC group swap with the theme of “Australia”. 

I happened to have some kangaroo stamps so knew they would get used.

I grabbed some scratch paper that had yellows and purples on it. I then added distress inks in yellows and reds to give the red desert I think of when I think of Australia.  

I then stamped the kangaroos in brown archival and tore the paper. I then created the bases using some packaging card and the ATC die.   Then I added ink round the edges and the piece of torn paper. I then chose a few stamps to frame the kangaroos.  

Finally I added a little extra colour to the bottom kangaroo using Inktense and took some away from the top one using water to remove the distress inks. 

I also added some of the Tim Holtz phrase stickers that I thought worked with the theme. 

Happy crafting!
