Distress oxide ink, Paperartsy, Eclectica -Darcy

UK Stampers forum ATC swap (128-140)

This was the starting point for these ATC’S I made for a swap with UK stampers forum, with the theme of “love”. It was a piece of paper I had been wiping my brayer off on during Gelli plate playing. 

I added some tissue paper and then some stamping to add interest to the background. Then added some clear gesso over the top too. 

Next I got out the sewing machine and some pieces of the ribbon that came in the last Artful Days goodie box  (I’ve started delving into it a bit at a time!). 

Next distress oxide came out to play. I stamped the Darcy heart stamp over the top of the background I made and then fussy cut them. (I made one extra for another project!)

Once fussy cut I then gold heat embossed the little panel just add texture and interest. 

I then reduced the panels a little tearing them and mounted them onto back cardstock. 

Then some more torn black card as a layer under the hearts and the word stickers to finish off.

And here they are individually! 

Happy crafting!
