I hope everyone enjoyed a lovely Father's Day yesterday!!
Today, I have some ATC's I made for Altered Arts Magazine. I made them using many sponsor products that I received when I started working for them. It is a set of 5 (sort of) that I call "License Plates". They use two different types of ATC's. 3 of them are on glossy blanks that I bought from Altered Arts Magazine years ago, and the other 2 are thick blanks. The thick cards are painted with Yasutomo "Niji" Pearlescent watercolor paints I got from Altered Pages and in the other 3 glossy cards I used Ranger Alcohol Inks.
After I painted/inked the backgrounds I started layering my elements! The next layer was a Hero Arts background stamp called "Italian Poetry", then I used 7 Gypsies paper tape and clear stamp set "Numero". The ink I used is from Prima. I didn't know they made ink, but they are so awesome! They are a chalk based fluid ink, and it dries quickly. Even over the alcohol inks. Then, I cut the license plates out of a piece of paper I got in an ephemera pack. I think it might be Tim Holtz? After I cut them individually, I applied them with glue. Last, I die cut some flowers, crumpled them up and glued them to the bottom. The pearl in the center is like the icing on the cake!!
I know I owe some of you an ATC, and I will be using these to send you so watch your mail!!
Have an awesome day!!
