Today I would like to share a trio of ATC's. I used the owl free stamp with November Craft Stamper Magazine, I will also be joining their October TIMI Challenge.
I love owls and really enjoyed making this trio.
I started with the background using distress inks and stamps building up the master board until I was happy. I meant to take photos of the master board in progress but I forgot as I got carried away in the moment :) Below are the details.
Master board - I started with distress inks on white card, crushed olive, mustard seed, frayed burlap, dried marigold, vintage photo, applying them in a random way until I was happy. I cut this to size and then the next step was to use a TCW stencil with rusty hinge distressed dots (at bottom of ATC's.) Stamps used are Sheena Douglass - Ageing Beautifully set, a great set for distress effects. I used the fabulous distressed corner stamp with black archival, the crackle was stamped in aged mahogany (behind owls), and script (at the bottom) in black archival
I made another master board with distress inks peacock feather, tea dye, frayed burlap. I dabbed the pads directly onto craft mat added water and swiped the card through the inks, stamped the owl in black archival 6 times to allow me to add layers to the wings and eyes with foam pads, which doesn't seem to show up in the photo. :(
Edges of each were distressed and inked with aged mahogany.
Using Tim Holtz tattered pine die I cut leaves in kraft card and inked with distress inks aged mahogany, crushed olive, frayed burlap, vintage photo and added pieces of burlap and layered buttons. Lastly I added chit chat stickers - creating-altered-treasure. words which fitted my creations perfectly for me as I love making these little treasures of art, they give me real pleasure not only to make but to keep. I used to swap them but haven't done so for a very long time.
