Scraps off the desk always make interesting starting point for ATCs…. and here are some examples… These were using some pieces of paper I had wiped stamps off when playing with my gelli plate, distress oxides and the Burlap stamp. I added different stamps and different finishes to them to make these ATCs…
1. Dreams take flight.
The feather stamp and sentiment came with a magazine. It’s a two step stamp and I stamped the base and the top in different colours of distress oxide and then added clear emboss to the top layer. I had made sure I dried it in between to only add the embossing on the top layer as the distress oxide can stay wet a while. I then heat embossed the sentiment in Black to make sure it stood out.
I added a delicate amount of the black soot to the edge and then added a strip of turquoise gems down one side before mounting it on Fresh Fig cardstock.
2. Ruffle your feathers…
This is very similar to the one above but with a different colour scheme and some additional stamping using the Timeless Textures stamps and of course distress oxides again!
3. Map your dreams…
This time I added a torn piece of map paper and some machine sewing to add texture and some different effects.
Same approach as the one above but this time a die cut and some heat embossing of the gorgeous birdcage image. Then I added the label word to add a graphic element.
5. Layers with wine
This time I took several pieces of the leftover scrap paper, tore them, inked the edges and layered them up. The top piece j added the stamped image from half full stamp set and added a little bit of colour to the grapes and outside edge to add definition. Love how all the layers coordinate and yet provide distinct layers.
So that’s 5 different ways of approaching the scraps on the table and turning them into mini artworks. Very happy with these!
And now only 16 to go to the target… whoop!
