It's pretty bad when I've had atcs done since January and have trouble just getting them on my blog... it's been crazy busy and I just get too tired at the end of the day to blog :-(
So I will share two atcs today!!
For this first one I was trying something for the background that I saw on a blog and now can't remember where (I will have to find it!!!) I took a background from my stash and added UTEE and Distress Stickles and played around... it didn't do exactly what it was supposed to and I just kept messing with it... don't even remember the exact steps anymore. The white hearts and dots were done with Ranger's Enamel Accents. The center heart is a piece I've had lying around.. I added pearl Paint Dabber to the high spots and also lightly dabbed it on the rest of the heart.. made it look real good. Tissue tape across the center under the heart. "heart" and "notes" are from the Tim Holtz words stamp.
This next atc started with an alcohol ink background. One of the things we've started doing at our in-person swaps is a background swap. Put a background or a couple or a few in the swap bucket and take out a couple that someone else put in... make atcs with the backgrounds you drew out. The alcohol ink background was one I drew out. I embossed it with the Tim Holtz atc sized queen of hearts card folder... added jet black Archival Ink over the high spots... used Glaze pens on the hearts - white and then red... added punched out hearts and a heart sticker to the center... colored a Tim Holtz Idea-ology crown... added sticky back gems to the point and gave the queen a crown.
