Creative Artiste: Azoline ATC's


Hello!


I am back again today as it is the first Friday of a new month which means that Creative Artiste has a new challenge which this month is being sponsored by Decoart...

This month I decided to try something a bit different to usual.  I wanted to decorate some grey board ATC's to go into my recently decorated ATC box, and I also wanted to try out a different technique using Decoart Media products...
 



There are a great series of short videos by Andy Skinner available on YouTube that highlight ways to use the various Media products by Decoart and I wanted to have a go at one using the crackle glaze and the interference paints.  So after painting the board with gesso and then a coloured paint I put crackle glaze across them then dropped in the interference paints...


Once dried I wanted to match my rather funky backgrounds with quirky stamps so first stamped some of the Azoline stamps straight onto the boards using black archival ink and then used Pitt pens by Faber-Castel to colour them in...


I then cut some card using one of the Tim Holtz mixed media dies and painted them with gold interference paint.

The main focal points were also stamped and then cut out and coloured using Pitt pens before having glossy accents applied with a sprinkle of glitter.

Finally I used some of the Tim Holtz small talk stickers adding a bit of dark pen to the sides and then put gold gilding wax around the edges of the ATC's to frame them.

I hope you enjoyed my little bit of difference this month!  If you are interested in seeing how some of the Decoart Media products can be used it is well worth having a search on YouTube, alternatively if you click on my Pinterest link button and go to my Decoart board there are links you can follow from there.

Please also go on over to the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog, you can find all the rules plus inspiration from the rest of the design team, click HERE to go straight there.

Thank you for reading and happy crafting,
