Welcome Back

Today I’d like to share another picture of an ATC background that I made using Daler Rowney System 3 acrylic paint.

Mottle Gold

Mottle Gold

This piece is likely to be stamped over in the end with text or images, this is just a starting point. It has various colours of System 3 Original acrylic paint and a gentle wash of Imitation Gold Pale Cryla to add a subtle brightness.

I’m enjoying experimenting with colour and texture for this month’s Virtual Crafting Challenge. How about you, have you got the paints out yet this month? Give it a go, its all about having fun and trying new stuff. Use what you have in the back of the cupboard, neglected, forgotten and just waiting for a challenge like this to be given permission to come out and play.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

In today’s post something a little different. A vintage style ATC that features glitter! Yep you did hear that right I’m using glitter! Now before you think I’ve lost the plot entirely I should say that this is no ordinary glitter. Oh no, this is unlike any product you’ve seen before. This features Wink of Stella by Zig!

Wink of Stella are a fabulous new pen range by Zig, I’ll be reviewing them on Wednesday and on Friday you can see a video tutorial I made, showing you round the pens and some techniques using them. It’s tricky to get the light right to show the twinkle, can you see it in this one?

Welcome Back

In today’s post there is a video to show you how you can create your own blank ATC cards from your favourite cardstocks.

 

For this project you will need;

  • A Scor It bord
  • Cardstock of your choice mine measures A4 in size
  • A metal ruler
  • A craft knife
  • A cutting mat

 

Method

  • Place your cardstock on to the Scor It board, with the short edge level with the top of the board.
  • Move your cardstock over to the 2.5″ mark and score a line,
  • Move your score line over to the 2.5″ mark and score again
  • Repeat this until you get to the edge of the card
  • Rotate your card so that the long edge is now level with the top of the board
  • Move the edge of the card to the 3.5″ mark and score a line
  • Move the score mark over to the 3.5″ mark and score again
  • Repeat this until you reach the edge of the card
  • Using a metal ruler and a craft knife, cut along all the lines and you will be left with 9 ATC sized cards from an A4 piece of cardstock.
