Worn & Tattered ATC Trade: The Castle

I've been away on vacation and am leaving again for the sequel in the morning. By next Wednesday, I will have traveled from New Jersey to Madrid and back again, then from New Jersey to California and back again. 

I did try to post the cards that I created for the Worn and Tattered ATC trade while I was gone, but my iPad had a different idea. So, I'm going to share all of them now.

Here's the first one, which went to England. 

It features Stampotique's Fairy Castle (Jo Capper-Sandon)

Here's the ATC.

I took a piece of 140 lb. Mixed Media cardstock (Strathmore) and cut two 2.25" x 3.25" pieces from it. Media Gesso (DecoArt) was applied very heavily to one piece. The second piece was pressed into the wet Media Gesso, left for a few seconds, then pulled away, leaving a lovely texture on both pieces. They were left to dry for a bit.

Fairy Castle was stamped onto the Media Gesso textured cardstock with Jet Black Archival ink (Ranger) and colored using Distress markers (Ranger) and some old Zig Photo Twin markers (EK Success). 

The sentiment was stamped onto matching green cardstock, cut apart, and edged with Black Soot Distress ink (Ranger).

The edges were distressed with a distressing tool and the edge of a pair of scissors. Then the image panel was matted on black cardstock.

Here's the card that went with it.

This time the Fairy Castle was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts), die-cut with a die from the Card Creator Nestabilities die set (Spellbinders), and colored with Copic markers. The edges were sponged with Black Soot Distress ink (Ranger). The background was patterned paper that was sponged with Distress ink over two layering stencils (Stampers Anonymous).

Thanks for visiting today.
