ATCs - Seeing Red


These atcs are for a swap on the EverythingWendyVecchi yahoo group.  The theme is "Seeing Red".  All the stamps I used are Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490 images.  The base is Ranger's manila atc blanks.  I smooshed barn red Distress ink onto the craft sheet, added a few squiggles of barn red reinker (not actually squeezing any onto the craft sheet but just squiggling what was on the end of the dropper), spritzed it all with Perfect Pearls Mist in the color perfect pearl, pressed my atc into it moving it around just a little, dried it, lightly tapped it into left over droplets and dried it again.  The text is stamped with Archival ink crimson.  The flourishy leaves were stamped with Archival olive.  The words stamped with Archival jet black.  The face is stamped onto grungepaper with jet black, cut out and inked with Distress ink.  An extra crown was stamped onto grungepaper, cut out, colored with Distress ink and layered over complete image with a scrap of grungeboard in-between for spacing.  Red 1/8" double faced satin ribbon, a couple of silver charms, and black dots made with a Glaze pen finish things off.  At the bottom of this post I have another picture, taken at an angle to show more of the Perfect Pearls shimmer you see as you tilt the atc.
