Create A Memory ATC

More Distress Inks, Studio 490 stamps, and new Tim Holtz Alteration Sizzix dies. The Alteration dies are so awesome and cut so well!!! Here again I'm using some flowers - the 2 smallest - and one of the flourishes. I layed the flourish on where I wanted it, cut off what didn't fit and then added back on to the atc - it's the piece at the top left of the flower. The background is another piece using Wild Honey ink spritzed with Sunflower gold PP on a craft sheet, lay in the white cardstock, dry and repeat until you want to stop. The image stamped along the left edge uses the kissing technique... inked the floral border with barn door, pressed it onto a checkered background image that was inked with pumice, and then stamped it onto the atc. The flourish is inked with crushed olive and stamped with Archival jet black. The red flowers are inked with barn door.... the smaller flower looks like a different color because it's the back of the grungepaper and stamped with jet black. The yellow flower is wild honey and stamped with jet black. "Stitching" done with a micron pen. Dots added with a black Glaze pen.
