Today I thought I'd share how I made my very first ATC with you.
I've been meaning to do one for ages but just never got around to it. Yesterday though I was watching Sheena Douglass on Create and Craft and she did a faux bleaching technique which I thought would work perfectly with a stamp I have.
The background is distress inks in Chipped Sapphire, Brushed Corduroy, Weathered Wood, Barn Door and Olive. It is then overstamped in Antique photo before the main image is stamped with black Staz-on.
The colour is removed by painting the image with water and blotting with kitchen paper. Once I had enough colour bleached out I gave the card a quick blast with a heat gun and added highlights with a white Sakura gel pen.
I'm very happy with the finished result and this is one card I definitely won't be swapping. I intend to do lots more and cover a canvas to display in my craft cave.
I'd love to know what you think of my attempt so please leave me a comment.
