I ended up with quite a simple ATC in the end, as I felt the amazing Think and Wonder stamps from Artistic Outpost stamps could really speak for themselves.
I haven't used the whole of the stamps, of course... to isolate the faces, I inked up the stamp and then used a cloth to wipe away the areas I didn't want to have on the ATC.
They're stamped in the blue from the ColorBox Archival set called Coffee House, with - in places - a hint of Seedless Preserves DI dotted onto the stamp too.
There's also some Seedless Preserves blended into the background of the ATC. And once done, I spritzed some water into my fingers and flicked it onto the ATC, in the Tim Holtz spritz and flick (can you see why it's called that?!) technique. I like the gentle mottled aging you get in the main image from the water spots.
The embossing round the edge is done with Stampendous Frantage Aged Silver embossing powder. I love the slightly variegated colours within it.
I also added the same powder to the Idea-ology Foliage to create a flower that would really blend in with the rest.
So, come and have some Fun With ATCs with us... even if you've never tried the ATC format before. Just take a card 2.5 by 3.5 inches, and start to play!
That's me for today (except for the quotations of course), so for now I'll love you and leave you, and look forward to meeting you again, whether here or elsewhere in Craftyblogland!
I think your whole life shows in your face, and you should be proud of that.
Strangers are exciting, their mystery never ends. But, there's nothing like looking at your own history in the faces of your friends.
I'm entering this in Hels Sheridan's Sunday Stampers over at Ink On My Fingers, which by a fortunate coincidence, also has the theme Faces this week
And also in the Artistic Outpost November Referral programme: Anything Goes, using at least one AO stamp
