Friday 13th Atc's

I started off by mixing media texture sand paste with ultra matte varnish and randomly spread it on three white pieces of card cut to atc size.

Once dry, I gave each one a coat of media paynes grey mixed with a hint of tinting base and continued to add different colours of media paint until I was happy with the backgrounds.

Next I added the images and gave everything a coat of ultra matte varnish. Once dry I applied clear crackle glaze to parts of the atcs.

I used a combination of black and brown antiquing cream over the crackles, although they blended the images into the background quite well, they didn't really enhance the cracks, so I went back in with the white. 

I cut some chicken wire and coloured it with quin gold, used mini staples to attach it and painted them quin gold too. 

I added the chit chat words and gave them a coat of Andy's dirty wash to tone down the white.

Again added a chit chat phrase and used the dirty wash to tone it down. The X is from my new dies.

I used the media mister to drip the red paint down the atc.

That's Crafty have a theme of Friday 13th.

All products are from DecoArt media range.
