This week over at Stampotique is ATC’s, the little canvas that packs a punch. ATC’s are all about making a statement in miniature.
Everywhere you look are silhouettes – in journals – on canvases – cards – so this was the basis for my project this week.
I started with an ATC covered in watercolour paper. Then stamped in Versamark the Steampunk Stampers Anonymous rail link then heat set with WOW clear embossing powder. This gives a resist technique where the stamp is.
I then spritzed cosmic shimmer blue ink over the project and made sure I just put it down the middle by placing torn scrap paper down each side of the ATC to give it an edge. I used kitchen roll to wipe off the excess.
I then stamped out Wilbur onto paper and sprayed with stick and spray repositionable glue. This allows me to use this as a mask and placed him in the middle of the ATC and over the rail link.
I then got cosmic shimmer inks in red and dark blue and took the top off the spray bottle and flicked the ink from the plastic tube onto the ATC giving a splodge effect. I then went around his image with black soot distress ink.
I then used Versamark and the Steampunk words stamp and put this image over Wilbur and heat set with WOW bright White embossing powder. I then took the mask off the ATC which left the silhouette of Wilbur on the ATC with the rail link map showing in the image.
I then cut out some of the hearts from the Stampotique stamp and glued them onto the silhouette.
The saying this week is:
If you want to know
Where your heart is,
Look where your mind wanders.
I printed this off my computer and cut each word out and inked the edges.
Have fun this week…Sue
