Fun With ATC 's ( A little late ) and more ATC's

Well I am running behind as no internet in the house for a few days but am up and running again with a new provider.
This should have gone up yesterday as we have started our new challenge over at Fun With ATC's the theme is Flourishes, head on over to see what the DT have created, you will not be disappointed.
 For this ATC I cut out my blank from card stock and then used the scallops on the edge die, I used Distress inks for the bg and a Lynne Perrella stamp for the main image, I used the distress pens to add some colour to the image. The flourish was cut from the Tim Holtz die and coloured and over stamped with a text stamp, it was then glued down and the overhanging bits were cut off. The whole thing has been given two coats of clear embossing powder.


This ATC was made using a Digi from Smeared Ink that has been coloured with copixs and then mounted to a mount board ATC blank. I then painted over the image carefully with matt glue n seal to act as a resist for when I do the bg. The bg was coloured with the pale yellow distress ink and then over stamped with persimo, barn door and then black distress inks, you can then wipe the ink off of the main image leaving it nice and clear.
 I would like to enter this one into the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp And Show, their theme is Seeing Stars.
This little chap is also a Digi from Smeared Ink and has been given the same treatment but with different colours. the stamps are from Dyan reavely the leaves and little squares have been coloured in using my distress markers. Again both ATC's have been covered with two coats of Clear embossing powder.

This little lady is from Kenny K, they have some great manga style images lots of different genres.
Like the last couple she has been coloured with copics,I tried to keep the colours simple as there is a lot going on with the image. She has also been painted over with glue n seal and the back ground has been coloured with distress inks, the stamping has also been done with distress inks and I used some cogs from Oxford Impressions and the text is from Wendy Vecchi.
 This ATC has been made as part of a swap I am doing with Neil 
 I hope he does not mind me posting it up here early. I still have three more to make for him, I got his on Monday and I will share them with you latter when I have finished my other three.





The last two have been made using a Gelli plate for the backgrounds, I still have a lot to learn, they were initially going to be my flourish ATC's but for some reason they do not quite work for me but they were good fun to make.The images are from The Octopode Factory.




Thanks for sticking with it Hopefully I will see some of you over at Fun With ATC's.

I would like to enter my Stars ATC into the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp And Show. They are having a seeing stars challenge.

  1. Wow Mark - a bumper bundle of ATCs to gloat over! I love the Lynne Perrella one, only because I love the colours you have used. The backgrounds using your Gelli plate in the last two are excellent, still not sure whether to get one........ Anne x

  4. Fabulous ATC collection! The flourish one is just wonderful - love the LP, and the flourish itself is gorgeous... Also really like the little goblin with the Dylusions background stamping - so cool. Loving the gelli experimentation too...
    I cut the words out on my ATC using one of those cheapo pairs of scissors with decorative blades - I've had them sitting around for years - will try to remember to look at the make and let you know...
