Monochromatic ATC

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I want to share a little ATC with you I made for a tutorial over at STAMPlorations. It is one of a set of three. Have a look ...

The colour scheme was inspired by the April ATC Swap of the UK Stampers Forum on Facebook. The theme this month is 'Blues'. I went for the colour rather than musical interpretation of the word. Well, saying that, I did use a musical stamp in the mix.

Basically I built up layers using ink for stamping, sponging and brayering with a little gesso thrown into the mix before stenciling the rose in acrylics and sparkle medium. Add in some gel pen doodles, a bit of die-cutting and Liquid Pearls and the ATCs were ready to be finished off with a few sequins.

There is a little slide show video on how I made them over on the STAMPlorations Blog here.

That's it from me for today. Have a lovely week!
