Faces ATCs

Before I share the ATCs I'd like to thank you for your good wishes for Josh. He's still tender round his injuries but is a lot better in himself.

I made the ATCs for the Paperplay July ATC swap - the theme was Faces.

For this ATC I sprayed some kraft card with dylusions spray and then used a mask and some modelling paste, when the paste had dried I went over it with some gold acrylic paint. The image was stamped on some card that I'd coloured a while ago, I wrapped some gold thread round it before adhering it to the background. The word was done on my Dymo.
I used a Rubber Stampede stamp for the image.

I stamped the face onto white card then made a mask to mask the face. I stamped the background and sponged some distress ink, I then cut the hair from the mask and added some more colour to the background. I removed the mask and made another to cover the ATC leaving the face showing and stamped the spots. After removing the masks I embossed some cosmic shimmer powder round the edge. I used my Dymo for the word and attached it with some staples.
The stamps I used are
Stampers Anonymous for the face image and the spots.
PaperArtsy for the background.

I coloured some card with Glimmer Mist, stamped some script, wrapped some gold thread round it and then matted it onto some black card. I stamped and embossed the image and adhered it to the background and added some gems.
The stamps I used are PaperArtsy.
