Vintage ATC

This ATC started life as a piece of black card cut to size.  I painted it with Lumiere hi lite violet acrylic paint and allowed it to dry, this almost entirely obliterated the black but provided a fab interference colour.

I then inked a swirl stamp and stamped randomly in onyx black Versafine on a piece of scrap salmon pink textured card. Next I sprayed this with peacock mica spray and dried with the heat gun. Five squares were then punched out with a square punch.  These were edged in Stazon black and put on one side. I then sprayed the background card at the edges with the same mica spray which balled up to produce a mottled effect.  Next a Crafty Individuals stamp was inked with black Stazon and stamped as shown on the background.  The face was glossed with Sakura clear glaze pen. The squares made earlier were then adhered across the ATC as shown.

The swirl stamp was next inked with fuschia pink Stazon and stamped several times. A small piece of silk ribbon was frayed and adhered and embellished with a small adhesive gem. The edges of the card were inked in mauve chalk ink to finish.  It's much more metallic and shimmery in real life as these never photograph well.
