Gelatos, Faber Castell, Masks/Stencils

For ATC’S sake … 65, 66 and 67

There are three more ATC’S I’ve got to share with you today using the above pieces of scratch paper I cut using the Tim Holtz atc bigz die.

I started with some gelatos to add some colour and blended with water and my finger. I love how the distress stain stayed in patches and then some of the iridescent medium which also shone through the gelatos. 

Next I used a baby wipe and took some of the colour away through a stencil. I love this technique and the subtle finish it provides.

Another stencil and then added ink through it. I also decided to rip one of the pieces a little to create a smaller topper.

I mounted that smaller piece onto a piece of patterned paper which has some gold inlaid. Then I added washi tape to two of them and some wax paper to the middle one.  The final one on the right I stamped the lady image to add the focal point.

Finishing touches time…

Some embellishments layered with cotton thread and some neon pink gems. Then some words chosen and then some inking round the edges. 

Another quote and a bit of outlining and then a pink heart brad. Plenty of inking too. Love this mix of grunge and prettiness.

The final one is the one with the stamped lady. 

I added twine and a charm and a couple of the chit chat words. And of course some inking round the edges.  Love the vintage feel to this one. 

So there we have it … three more for the challenge total… 324 to go! ahem… that seems like rather a lot… ah well wouldn’t be a challenge if it wasn’t challenging!

Happy crafting!
