AJ Atc's


Over at Art Journey they have a theme of ATC's this month.  I created the backgrounds using TH distress paints, barn door, mustard seed, mown lawn, salty ocean, picked raspberry and picket fence.




Unfortunately I don't have that many AJ stamps and the ones I do have are rather large for Atc's, but I went with what I had and this is how they came out!!  I used black versamark ink on them but I don't think it mixes well with the paint as it's still wet now even after heat drying!!

You have more AJ stamps than I do, so well done! I think I see a hint of pink on those atc's (or should I say, minus green...) Sam!

The black looks amazing against the smooshed paint, Sam. I can see you using this technique for our splash of orange tag swap?

Hels Sheridan reckons Archival ink heat dried is the best on top of distress paints.

Lovely to see how the backgrounds were and what you made of them! The second one is my favorite; the circle works perfect! Groetjes, Gerrina
