Today I’ve got 5 ATC’s to share with you with the theme of Nautical. They were made for a Facebook swap in a group I am in. I’m excited to see what comes back from others too.
This first one started as a piece of map that I added some acrylic paint to. I then added some stamping to it using a Hot Picks Paperartsy stamp which features a fish.
I added this paper to a plain background and added some sewing along the edge to add some texture and made sure it was adhered. Then along the other side I added some iridescent medium through a stencil that looks like bubbles.
The next one has some of the Tim Holtz tissue wrap on it and some of the opal magic art alchemy paint underneath. This gives part of the card some sheen which is lovely.
I added the word travel through a stencil using modelling paste which provides some nice texture.
The feature image is the lovely fish from Indigo Blu and then I layered the paper onto another painted paper and then onto a black gessoed card.
Next are two lighthouse ATCs … this first one is distress oxides on a map and then the stamps from Creative Stamping magazine. These were added onto a piece of paper which had some gelli printing bits on it too.
The second one is also distress oxides as a base but also some netting and machine sewing. I love all the layers and soft finish to the image and colour.
Finally a sepia one… book print onto some cardstock and plenty of distress inks. Then added a little painting with cracked pistachio distress oxide onto the boat.
Also added sewing to this too and some white gel pen.
So these were my five nautical themed cards.

WOW Catherine! The stitching, torn edges, stenciling, modeling paste and netting really add nice textures to your ATCs. I haven’t made any in so long and I love the tiny canvas!
Thanks Wendy… I can’t believe I’ve managed so many this year!
They are such a great way to test out techniques. You’ve inspired me!
So nice to hear. X
