Swap: backgrounds

A ‘double’ swap. First I received backgrounds from my partner and then I had to create an ATC with one of the backgrounds… From the 4 she sent I chose these two to work with. On both I used stamps. Fun swap!

Swap: May 2017 themed ATC

Challenge for this month was to combine Lily of the Valley and emerald. For some reason I find these hard to do…  I drew the little flowers and added a bit of color with colored pencil… made a background with a printed paper and added the quote with a micron pen.

Swap: Page protector, bookpage and ink

This was a fun technique! I put some drops of acrylic ink in a page protector and used a brayer to mix it up a bit. Then added two book paged and brayered again. The background was made! I used white ink and a stencil to create a little lighter part and then stamped the dragonfly and word. Added a few highlights and a shimmer to the wings… put it on a sturdy purple background and it’s done 🙂

The other half

Earlier this week I posted the right side of this sweet face… I stamped on two ATC’s so I had the other half to work with also. I decided to use the same lay out but a different technique. I mixed my yellow watercolor with molding paste that has glitter in in. Same stampset, totally different looks!
