Whimsical Bird ATC

We have our August inspiration challenge

 AND our August swap still going on.  The August swap is for ATC's and the theme is: colors of the sunset.

If you have been watching the challenges and swaps lately you might have npticed that we have been picking themes for the swaps that go with our inspiration challenges.  That way you get more bang for your buck!  You get to swap art and link up for a chance to win!

So now that you have the insider information...on to the project I am sharing today...  I created ATC's for our swap inspired by the colores from the inspiration challenge that just HAPPENED to be colors of the sunset or at least my interpretation.

I started with a piece of watercolor paper, my gelli plate and Dina Wakley acrylic paints.  Oh and stencils too, one from Um Wow Studio.

I cut my two ATC bases from one of my prints.

I built up my layers by first stamping on a piece of tissue paper, fussy cutting and adhereing to my background.  Then I did another of the same layer and adhered only on one edge.

This is the Typeset Scallop stamp, one of my favorites from the latest release.

I love the texture.

The Whimsical Long Beaked Bird is stamped on all of the layers and then the body is stamped fussy cut, colored and popped up.

This bird is SO cute!

Here is a close up of the background...glorious colors!!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to join us in either our swap or our challenge.  You can find the swap deatils in the events page of The Viva LasVegaStamps Groupies Facebook Page and the challenge info our our blog.

Until next time...get inky!
