Thursday Thoughts

I'm sharing a couple of ATCs I made to take part in the facebook Happy ATC group's events.

First up is a card I made for their monthly swap using July's theme of Sunrise & Sunset.

Image may contain: cloud, sky, ocean, text, outdoor, nature and water

I used a STAMPlorations set that focuses on the sunrise part of the theme:

I stamped it onto watercolour card and coloured it using Arteza water brush pens. They really blend and spread brilliantly. I stamped the greeting and water coloured over that too and then matted it on black and popped it up onto foam pads. I used Versafine Clair ink which I've discovered works brilliantly with water colours, but not so good with alcohol markers.

Stamps: STAMPlorations, New Beginnings
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne
Colours: Arteza brush pens
Embellishments: Glosy Accents & Wink of Stella

My second atc is for the lottery event where one lucky pick gets to receive all the cards entered and then hosts the next month's lottery. The theme for July's event is Peacocks.

No photo description available.

I started by using A Colorful Life's Doodle Wheels stencil and three shades of distress oxide ink.

I then found a peacock image from the internet and printed it on paper. I attached the stencilled card over the top of the printed image using temporary adhesive and sent it through the printer again. I finished off by using Copic pens to highlight the peacock and added sparkle and shimmer with Wink of Stella.

Stencil: A Colorful Life, Doodle Wheels
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, peacock feathers, cracked pistachio, mermaid lagoon
Pens: Copic, B04, B29, YG23, C3, BG32; Wink of Stella, clear
