Hi everyone! I have had a productive couple of weeks and as a result, I have some fun video’s and a series on Photoshop that I will share over the coming weeks. But first, I always love to share the mini works of Art that my creative friends send me. These ATCs are so much fun to make, as I practice techniques that either I have discovered while playing, or that I have learned from the classes I have taken online. Even better is receiving the small gifts of love each month from my talented friends!
This month the theme was Valentines/Love and so I went with the typical Valentine color scheme rather than with the typical heart motifs. I experimented with Yupo and Twinkling H2O’s after taking Jodi Ohl’s online class. You can read more about the class here at Creative Clearinghouse. I painted the background using watercolor techniques that Jodi taught us. Then I used one of Easy Scraps new Scroll Tile Rubber Stamps to stamp on top of the color, using White Stazon Ink. It wasn’t as crisp and clear as I would have liked, so I over-stamped it using a different color Stayzon Ink (black in some cases and purple in others). That ended up giving almost a 3 dimensional look to the stamp, because I didn’t try to line it up perfectly, so some of the white showed around the darker color.
Here is my ATC:
and here are the other lovely ATC’s I received. Aren’t they great?!!
