I had sooo much fun making this ATC. I just love it when a project starts with a little seed in your mind and grows from there, blossoming into a finished product that really makes you smile.
I really wanted to use Stampotique 'mort had a pin curl' on this ATC - he was stamped on scrap cardstock and coloured with Derwent inktense & Derwent coloursoft pencils then trimmed out and set aside. The ATC began life as white cardstock, and was coloured with Tim Holtz Adirondack Inks (lettuce, meadow, sunset orange). I stamped over it with Journal Impressions circles in Distress Inks (scattered straw, peeled paint, spiced marmalade, wild honey) and Black archival ink. Highlighting was done with a white gel pen.
I found this fun phrase which came out of an old book, and was the inspiration for this ATC - it says, "It was Mr. Dill, a little, meek-looking man, with a bald head." I doodled around the edges of the words, and the edges of the ATC with a black artline pen.
If you are looking for some Stampotique images of your own, they can be found at The Stamping Queen, who also sell a range of Paperbag Studios stamps. I am loving these journal impressions circle stamps, and love the fun of these Stampotique images.
Hope you like this ATC as much as I do!
