Red, Green, Black & White


Over at Out of a Hat Creations this week they are asking for a set of 3 Atc's with any theme but each must incorporate the colours red, green, black and white.  

Now mine look like orange and yellow but they really are shades of red and green.  I used the fresco paint colours, claret, London bus (which is obviously red!!),  guacamole, hey pesto and limelight (being the greens).  I stamped the LP images onto acetate and coloured the backs of certain areas in snowflake fresco paint.  I over heated them which caused the acetate to warp and curl, so they had to be stapled with T!m's mini attacher!!!  I added text from the script stamp using black and red stazon.  Finally I added circles in snowflake paint and doodled with the white Posca pen!!

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
