I got so inspired by my last ATC that I decided to make some more. And I'm just warming up. This is a great way to try out new techniques as the area to work is so small (about 2.5x3.5") It's also a great way to use up anything small you might have: paperscraps, bling, punches etc.
I have stamped directly onto patterned paper as I love the sheer look it gives. It's perfectly fine to colour on although you might not get a brilliant shading (great for us that hasn't perfected our colouring skills)
For this pink/green I used one of Meredith Dillman's stamps from plate #94. She is actually holding an egg, but attaching a flower made the image more versatile. The word stamp is from ching chou kuik's sheet 7, plate 29. I kept it a bit distressed and added gold. Love that combination.
For my other ATC I used Linda Bigg's "Bella's paradise" from plate 81. The patterned paper already had the black detail. All I had to do was stamp and colour. I love the underwater effect here. I also went a bit crazy with my glitterpen and added dimensional glaze on the black swirl to the right. Finally before mounting I punched a border and attached it to the right to even out the ATC layout.
