Here are three ATC's I have made for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum. The theme is 'Freedom' and what is more free than a bee on its travels from flower to flower in its quest for nectar?
I made the backgrounds with spray inks in orange and yellow (Sticky Fingers), applying in layers to obtain a very deep summer sun colour and drying in between each sprayed layer with a heat gun.
I then stamped the flowers (Sizzix polymer) and the bee (Kars) in Archival black ink adding a flower stem by hand with a black Micron pen. The bees body and petals of the flowers were coloured with yellow Posca pen and some gold Posca added in the centre of them.
A printed twinchie (Crafty Individuals) was added to each and the cards were finished with a Dymo word edged with more gold Posca. The ATC's were edged with burnt sienna chalk ink.
