'Fire' ! ATC

Here is another ATC, this one entitled 'Fire'. I have managed to try out my new Viva Ferro metal effect colours in bronze and copper. I love the texture and the way they spread and they are loaded with fine metal filings which add an even better surface finish too.

I cut the ATC from card and used a palette knife to spread two stripes of the Ferro, blending in the middle. The house and roof were cut from chipboard and first stamped with black Stazon using a Zettiology stamp. They were next coloured with distress inks in spiced marmalade and fired brick applied with cut'n'dry foam before edging with gold Krylon pen.

I then stamped (again in black Stazon) some feint images onto the dried background and they are hardly visible and added a small pool of glossy accents in the bottom left to which I adhered some old gold bugle beads and allowed to dry.

I then took a little opaque orange plastic tag and trimmed it to fit the top left of the card. I drew some flames onto it using orange Tiara Gelly Roll pen and stamped the word 'Fire' in black stazon. The card was then assembled as shown using glossy accents to adhere the house and the tag.

I am really impressed with the Ferro colour and will definately be trying it out on more artwork in the near future. Sid :-)
