I love this stamp and have not used it for a while so I thought I would get it out to make 2 ATC's I owed. Stamped onto cream card with Versamark watermark stamp pad and the chalked over with pearlescent chalk. Set in place with cheap hair spray. I like the end result.

Slide Mailer

I made my first slide mailer this week. After a couple of troubles getting the paint even i finally managed to get a base i was happy with. Base paint is metallic acrylic paint, rain drops stamped with stazon on the front. Words stamped onto white card with brilliance pearlescent ink and daubed over the top with a lighter normal ink.

Inside words done the same way as the outside. Glass stamped with stazon and coloured on the back with sakura souffle pens. The glass was stuck down with stickles glitter glue.

Melting pot fun turned into an ATC

After a few failed attempts with the melting pot i finally got the hang of it and decided to turn my one successful Comedy/Tradgedy mask into an ATC. Background is alcohol inks, mask secured with pinflair glue gel as i find this product very strong and easy to use. The stamp is from Hero Arts and comes in a set called 'Artistic branches', stamped with stazon black.
