Colorwash, My favorite Things, Punches

My first ATC!

That’s right! My first! I made this  a couple of weeks ago for my SBS18 sister for our monthly swap. I don’t know why I haven’t made ATC’s before, they are fun to make!

I have to thank Diane, A.K.A miss apple on splitcoast for showing me this background technique! She came over to stamp with me a month ago and showed me her ‘colorwash’ technique. She uses glimmer sprays and mixed ink sprays to spritz watercolor paper. The leaf design is made by laying down a mask ( in this case a plastic leaf) and spritzing over it, then removing it. The other mask is some grid tape! So fun to do! I love how this turned out!

Stamps: Boho Bliss MFT

Accessories: glimmer mists, dragonfly punch, plastic leaf, mesh tape

Paper: Watercolor Paper Fabriano?

Ink: Taken with Teal

My blog is a way to challenge myself creatively, keep me motivated and inspired, to explore new ideas, and to share them with others! I feel the need to express myself in new ways...I hope you'll join me!
