Hope, Heal & Happiness ATC's

Here is one more set of ATC's just completed for a swap on UK Stampers Forum .  The theme this time is as the title and I wracked my brain for ideas for these.  I ended up using some free digi images from the Land Of Nod Studios of three charming little people who I thought I would use as a depiction of the words. These were printed out onto plain copier paper.

The base cards were cut from pale blue cardstock (just had it spare at the time !) and these were painted with a good coat of acrylic paint in desert sand.  When dry I used a piece of sequin scrap as a stencil and went over selected portions with spiced marmalade Distress Ink and yellow Dylusions matt acrylic applied with a matural sponge.  I dried all thoroughly with a heat gun.

I then took a polymer Inkadinkado chandelier stamp and stamped this on each card with archival black ink, again drying with the heat gun.

I then stamped the hats (West Coast Designs)  onto patterned paper with archival black and carefully trimmed them out.

The images were then assembled and stuck in place first and trimmed followed by the hats and the images gone around with a grey Copic marker.  The words were printed out onto copier paper, trimmed out & stuck on and edged with a fine black pen.

Finishing touch was to edge each card with tangerine Colorbox chalk ink.
