Morning, thanks for stopping by again. Yesterday I showed the ATC holder that I made for the launch of the new stamp collection by Leonie Pujol. Today I have a selection of cards I made to go inside. I hope you enjoy.
Mrs Peypes' New Gown:
To create the background I used multiple cut outs from the 1849 Edition of 'The Illustrated London News'. When dry, I coloured the dress using 3 shades of green alcohol markers, I used distress ink around the edges of the card, Peeled Paint, Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn. On a separate piece of super smooth card I created the centre of the flower using a stamp from the Branching Out Set and the petals using a stamp from the Arrow to the Art set. I used a mask for both of these so I could cleanly overlap the stamps. I then coloured the flower with a selection of alcohol markers, decided on the area and stuck it to my card.
To create the foreground, I fussy cut the scene I wanted and stuck it to my card with Cosmic Shimmer Glue. I used Pebeo Drawing Gum on the areas I wanted to keep untouched, St Pauls, The River, Flags and the people watching. The i took stamps from Inky Notes set,Feathery Flourish set and Arrow to the Art set. I then stamped these in the sky using a selection of bright distress inks, over-stamped them with Versamark, covered with clear embossing powder and used a heat tool to set.
Using Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch and Weathered Wood Distress inks, I blended the night sky fading to my focal point. I also used the same to add colour around the edge of my card. inally I removed the gum and added a few highlights using Squeezed Lemonade and a watercolour brush (Hardly and Water).
Old World Map ATC:
I used the old world map decoupage papers from Craft Consortium to create the background for this piece. I tore the areas I wanted and glued them using Creative Expressions Matt Glue Seal & Glaze. To age the rest of the background I used Weathered Wood,Tattered Rose,Old Paper and a smidge of Squeezed Lemonade so it blended with the old map. An Indigo Blu stamp (from Ink Splats collection) was stamped with Archival coffee Ink.
I created the compass using a stamp from Leonie's Arrow to the Art set. The arrows I added also came from the same set. From the Feathery Flourish set I added the direction lines on the map. Finally I added the compass points using a mapping pen and Gold drawing ink.
