Inktense, Derwent, Masks/Stencils

For ATC’S sake … 83 – 85

Today another three ATC’S to share. Again these are scratch papers cut up into ATC size. And two of them go into the Wicked Wednesday atc challenge blog theme of hearts! 

So I added some strips of Gelli printed paper and then I added a pale pink paint over them to tone them into a background. Next some Inktense pencil outlining and shading. I love how different they look already! Love the layers are still visible to some extent but that they become one piece of art. 

Next I took some texture paste and some mother of pearl paint and added it through the stencil to create the leaves. I must admit this didn’t quite have the effect I was hoping for as the pearlescent effect disappeared in combination with the texture paste… ah well… you win some, you lose some. 

I decided to outline things with a black pen.  Not entirely sure at this point that it is a waterproof ink …. but again lessons to be learnt. 

Next to choose some focal images… I had a rummage through the embellishment box and came up with three different finishes. 

Wooden hearts and embossed dotty legs make the first one fun. 

Flowers and a floral printed picture for a pretty finish.

Vintage picture and a flower for the final one. 

Love how different they all look from the same base. And another three done! 

Happy crafting!
