Art and crafting styles

ATC’s numbering 340 – 343

So I can’t believe how close I am to my target of 365… and there are still 3 months to go before the end of the year. Not sure I’ve ever managed to fulfil a challenge before. I am amazed! 

Anyways … the idea for these ATCs came from Wanda who shared a project on the Paperartsy blog using distress oxides and transparent gloss texture paste. So I had to have a go! 

I took some pieces of mixed media cardstock and layered the fired brick, candied apple and black soot distress oxides until I was happy with it. Then I added the texture paste through different stencils.

I finished them all off with stamps and doodles, mainly using the Paperartsy stamps.

These first three are all for a UK stampers forum swap. 

The final one I treated slightly differently. 

Once the texture paste was dry I took a baby wipe and wiped off a lot of the colour. I LOVE how this came out.  So different. Will definitely be trying this again.

So that’s 4 more towards my target! 

Happy crafting!
