'Mickey' ATC

This is my entry for the TMTA challenge for this week. The challenge was to craft an ATC in the theme of 'Comic'. It's the first I have done for a while but I enjoyed making it. I can't think of anyone who hasn't seen Mickey Mouse so I chose this character as my subject.

I used:

  • Card (white cut to 2.5 x 3.5 inches)
  • Whispers Dye Inks (Yellow & Orange)
  • Versamark Inkpad
  • Versafine Inkpad (Onyx black)
  • Embossing Powder (Glitter Gold)
  • Rubber Stamp (small outline star, Making Memories alphas)
  • Brads (metallic red)Inkjet Transparency

The image of Mickey (from the sorcerers apprentice in Fantasia by Disney) was first printed onto Inkjet transparency film. The background of the card was coloured with cut'n'dry foam and Whispers dye inks in yellow & orange, applied in a sort of starburst effect. This was heat set.

The star stamp was inked with Versamark, stamped four times as shown and heat embossed with the gold sparkle embossing powder. Finally the acetate with the image was positioned over the background and affixed with four brads as shown. The acetate was then trimmed to size.

Hope you like it :-)
