Hi there & good morning from a bright and breezy Dublin.
Today I am keeping a promise to a fellow crafter Louise Stock who asked me
to explain how I made this type of background.
So Louise as promised this is for you.
The picture above is an Artist Trading Card “ATC”.
This came about as I had watch a demonstrator on Creat & Craft making these type of backgrounds.
I did not have what the supplies she used but decided to experiment.
I had no heat resistant acetate, so I cut a piece off a lamination sheet. I stamped the Clarity Stamp Butterfly with
versamark and sprinkled heat embossed with wow embossing powders very carefully (do not overheat).
When this had cooled, I turned it over, I and dropped some alcohol inks and blending solution on the back, I then
sprinkled some frantage on it also. Next came some scrunched up tissue paper, laid on top. I poured some
pledge Klear into a plastic cup and with a large paint brush gently tapped over the tissue, until it was soaked but not dripping wet.
Then leave to dry.
I scored the laminated sheet to wrap around the a trimmed ATC piece of card and mounted, this again on an ATC size card, that I had
frantaged around the edge.
Hope you like it, I have to say I love it.
Below is two more examples, sorry the colours are basically the same, but I have to wait to buy some more alcohol inks at the NEC.
Don’t forget to leave me a comment.
Bye for now.
