I’ve been playing with distress oxides again. They are fab inks and so many cool and easy results.
I started with a piece of cardstock and then created two ATC’S for a swap where the theme was HATS.
The top photo is a closeup of part of the main piece of cardstock that I started with. Then I cut it into some sections so I could make the atcs.
The first one I took a Tim Holtz stamp (Runway) and stamped the image. I also added some stamped circles using the Kim Dellow paperartsy stamp wh8ch make it look a little retro. I tore one side and then mounted it onto an ATC made from corrugated cardstock than I had painted with black gesso.
The title was a sticker from the stash and then some doodled edging and I called it done.
The second one I wanted a completely different look. I added some texture paste through a stencil in the back and then found this image I had received in a swap. The colours worked perfectly so I added it on top using gel medium. I wanted it to tone into the background though so I added some gesso as a very light coverage.
I wasn’t convinced I liked it at this point so decided to take my white gel pen and add some dots and doodles.
OK so it’s a bit strange but I liked it!
I know the recipient has now received these so hopefully she likes them too… as for me.. I’m still loving distress oxides! And two more ATC’s done!
