Worn and Tattered ATC Swap -- One for the hostess!

Over the past year or so, Nikki Woodward has organized wonderful Stampotique ATC swaps. I decided I should send her a little gift, accompanied by an ATC and a card.

Julep (Amy Wilson-Wellenstein) was stamped onto canvas with Jet Black Archival ink (Ranger), colored with a combination of Distress markers (Ranger) and some old Zig Photo Twin markers (EK Success), fussy-cut, then edged with black marker. A bit of glitter marker was added here and there to add a touch of sparkle. 

The Love Potion bottle from Containers Cubed #2 was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored with Copicmarkers, fussy-cut, then edged with black marker.

Several colors of Distress ink (Ranger) were smooshed onto my craft pad and spritzed with water. A piece of canvas was pressed into the puddles of watery ink, then scrunched up, and flattened. This process was repeated several times until I was happy with the color. The canvas was heat set until it was dry. 

Symphony Scroll was stamped onto the dried canvas with Golden Glitz Delicata ink (Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts) and heat set with gold embossing powder. A Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen (EK Success) was used to add a touch of glitter to the Symphony Scroll.

The edges of the canvas were tattered and the canvas was adhered to a black ATC.  Julep
 was adhered to the ATC and the Love Potion bottle from Containers Cubed #2 was positioned in Julep's hands.

Here's the card that accompanied the ATC and the gift.

Julep was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored with Copic markers, then die-cut with the pierced circle die from the Blueprints 3 die set (Die-namics). The background was added with blue Copic markers, then the circle was edged with Dusty Concord Distress ink (Ranger). 

One of the fishtails from the Fishtail Flags Stax (Die-namics) was used to die-cut a scrap of patterned paper then edged with the Dusty Concord Distress ink. Another scrap of patterned paper was used for the card front. 

The layers were all attached and some purple rhinestones were added to finish the card.

Thanks for visiting today.
