birds on a wire



Hi, Hermine here with an step-by-step ATC I named birds on a wire.

step 1: Take a white card which a slightly smaller then an ATC. Stamp with Stazon Black the birds on a wire 18098 and the butterfly 14159 twice. Stamp with Distrees Frayed Burlap torn paper 19341


 
step 2: Drag with your inkpad direct-to paper the upper half with Distress Peacock feathers and blend with a waterbrush.


 
step 3: Dry brush with gesso, please keep it as thin as possible.


 
step 4:  Stamp the birds on a wire with Stazon black, but slightly lower then the first time. Stamp with Stazon the French background writing19297 on top of this (you don't have to mask anything).
And stamp with Stazon Black Whimsical boy in hat 19359 on a piece of vellum and cut out in shape.

 
step 5: Glue the Whimsical boy in hat 19359 on the right hand side. If you cover the whole piece of vellum you won't see the glue and it dries invisible. Take a waterbrush and make some shades with Distress Frayed Burlap. Scriblle around the boy with a micron pen.

This way you can create lots of layers without making the ATC chunky and it will fit an ATC sleeve perfectly. Hope this will inspire you.

Warmly Hermine
