Tina and I have been playing with the PaperArtsy Wings plate 2. Firstly this one by Tina is absolutely stunning and so inspiring - its titled Minute by Minute.
The background is triple embossed using a fine gold embossing powder, then Tina stuck a piece of bark onto the melted powder while it was still hot. It was then left to cool fully and the bark pulled off (only a couple of tiny bits of the bark remained stuck which Tina brushed off). Tina then rubbed a Metallic Red Krylon pen onto the background.
The acetate was stamped in stazon and when dry, Tina turned it over and added Red pepper, Pesto and Butterscotch alcohol inks. She tipped them from side to side to spread the inks and to get them to mix. Then a piece of white card was stamped with a crackle stamp and mounted to the back to make the alcohol inks stand out and look vibrant.
This one is one of mine which I made today - the Balerica Bird stamp from the plate was
This one I also made today - the background is made using spray Adirondack colour wash. I stamped her out again on to white card so that I could colour and cut out her face to layer onto the ATC. I then Versamarked a rectangle and double embossed.
Another stunner of Tina's - take a look at the closeup to see the texture and detail that has been added in clear embossing powder. Its these extras that make Tina's ATC's a delight to own.
This is another very simple one I made today (using another of those backgrounds shown in last Fridays post ) - I stamped another lady on plain white card so that I could cut out her face and wings to colour and emboss separetely.
Believe in Yourself is by Tina - again her attention to detail is stunning - take a look at the closeup to see the detail. The button, German scrap wings and flower charm have all been coloured using the red krylon pen.
Last one is the fourth I made today before I had to stop playing and get down to some real work LOL! This is another simple ATC stamped with the man from the Wings plate 2, the Lost Coast Phrenology Head and the stamps my lovely friend Tina sent to me. I stamped the man out again on white card - coloured and cut out the butterfly to layer on to him and then glossed the butterfly using glossy accents (as it was a bit on the small side to triple emboss).
