Our second SBS18 ATC (Artist Trading Card) swap was the theme “Charmed I’m Sure”. We were to use at least two charms on our ATCs.
I used these two little pewter charms as accents against a silhouette stamped background.
I started with a lilac coloured textured cardstock and to get those random lines across it, I smooshed my ink pad on a piece of acetate, then swiped the cardstock over it. The raised textured parts picked up the ink and gave it this streaked grid background. I then stamped my Pocket Silhuettes stamp twice before reinking it to get the “ghost” silhouettes and the darker silhouettes. This was then mounted on a green Asian print background. I really like the soft colours and how the bg turned out. I might have to experiment with this background technique, with different cardstock textures, to see how they pick up the ink. Maybe different ink surfaces too… hmmm. Let me know what you think! 🙂
Thanks so much for this fab award! Isn’t this a cool design? Love it. Now I would like to pass it on to 5 other kreativ Bloggers! 🙂
