Tando-Creative ~ ATC

This week's theme on ~{Tando}~ is ATC's and I thought I'd do one a bit differently to how I usually do them.


I started off sticking some plasterers tape, book pages and texture paste through the ~{Dotted Star Mask}~ randomly on the ~{ATC}~ then gave everything a good thick coat of gesso. The best thing about the ATC's is that you can load them up and they don't curl up like card does.

I then added little hints of colour over the base using the Pitt Big Brush Markers, my newest love.

I've painted 2 leaves from ~{Mini Leaves 2}~ and ~{Mini Leaves 3}~ and a heart from  ~{Mini Hearts}~, then dabbed white acrylic paint over the top to make them paler.

I then stuck flowers onto the ATC with gem middles and added lots of white paint over them. Once everything was dry (and it took a while as I'd really put it on thick) I added a couple of drops of spray ink using the stem of the spray and added a tiny bit of water to spread the colour out a bit.

Finally I added a little bit more pen and blended it out and some lettering.

Kaz, your ATC is absolutely lovely. I love the texture that, in particular, the plasterers' tape gives your background. It is obvious from reading your narrative, that a lot of time and effort, as well as talent, went into this tiny space. Beautifully accomplished art!
