Colorful ATC's - By Elina

In less than two week's time I'll be attending a live ATC swap. In order to have enough cards to swap, my ATC factory is already full speed, and soon I'll have a pile of ATC's to take with me!

This time I used the lovely 'Whimsical Beaked Guy in Crown' stamp as my main image, and put him on a colourful background painted with acrylic paints:

I colored the background with a brayer, and once the first layers of paint were dry I also used acrylic paint for stamping. My craft mat was my ink pad; I spread a thin layer of paint on the mat with my brayer, and stamped random patterns on the background paper. When stamping with acrylic paints it's important to clean the stamp right afterwards. Don't let the paint dry on the stamp!

There are now seven ATC's in this series. This main image was so cool that I just had to make several cards on the same go!

Before gluing the main image on the card front I added some stamped textures on the background. StazOn or Archival inks work well on acrylic paint.

I think the cards look quite nice! I hope someone will pick them up on the ATC swap! :)

For this project I used the following VLVS! stamps:

Whimsical Beaked Guy in Crown
Measuring Tape Section
Carved Xs
Whimsical Triangle Banner

Wishing you a wonderful day.Thanks for stopping by in our blog!
