'From The Body' ATC's

Hi Crafters,

'From The Body'
that was the theme of this months ATC swap at Charmed Cards & Crafts and here are the set of ATC's that I created.

I started by stamping and heat embossing the Woodware Vintage Hand stamp and cutting them out. I used distress inks to colour them. I then concentrated on the background and built up the layers using corrugated cardboard, texture paste, gauze, wooden heart-lock & key elements. I sprayed the backgrounds when they had dried with Cosmic Shimmer Mists and left to dry. I then added some gilding wax to highlight parts of the design and texture. My sentiment is a Lindsay Mason Stamp set which I have stamped, embossed and cut apart, inking the edges to define it against the background. Finally, after gluing the sequins I splattered the whole thing with thin white paint using an old tooth brush.
I thoroughly enjoyed making these ATC's and I'm looking forward to getting 'messy' again for next months swap.

Thanks for popping by today, hope to see you here again soon,
