Expression ATCs (Transparency)





Here are some ATCs that I've created for a Ett Trykk's August issue. These are such fun and funky ATCs.

Here are the steps.

1) Radiant ATC
I've used a Basic Grey pattern paper for it's background. Create a piece of layering using the
"Reverse Look of Bubble Wrapper Printing" technique and ink it using brushed corduroy distress ink. Mask a flower on lower right using fired brick distress ink. Stamp a wording image using brushed corduroy distress ink. Cut out a piece of transparency the same size as the ATC. Paint the edges using a red acrylic paint. Stamp the images using jet black and olive green solvent ink. Use a white gel doodling pen to add details. Add the flower and the printed vellum title. Attach both the background and the transparency together using an eyelet and embellish it with a ribbon.

2) Stylish ATC
I've used a Scenic Route pattern paper for it's background. Create a piece of layering using the "Reverse Look of Bubble Wrapper Printing" technique and ink it using weathered wood distress ink. Mask a flower on upper right using spiced marmalade distress ink. Stamp a wording image using frayed burlap distress ink. Cut out a piece of transparency the same size as the ATC. Paint the edges using an olive green acrylic paint. Stamp the images using jet black and white solvent ink. Add the flower and the printed vellum title. Attach both the background and the transparency together using an eyelet and embellish it with a ribbon.

3) Glamorous ATC
I've used a Ki Memories pattern paper for it's background. Create a piece of layering using the "Reverse Look of Bubble Wrapper Printing" technique and ink it using tattered rose distress ink. Mask a flower on upper right using pink pigment ink. Stamp a wording image using tattered rose distress ink. Cut out a piece of transparency the same size as the ATC. Paint the edges using a pink acrylic paint. Stamp the images using jet black and timber brown solvent ink. Add the flower and the printed vellum title. Attach both the background and the transparency together using an eyelet and embellish it with a ribbon.

4) Dainty ATC
I've used a Ki Memories pattern paper for it's background. Create a piece of layering using the "Reverse Look of Bubble Wrapper Printing" technique and ink it using tattered rose distress ink. Mask a flower on lower right and stamp a wording image using the same distress ink. Cut out a piece of transparency the same size as the ATC. Paint the edges using a blue acrylic paint. Stamp the images using jet black and white solvent ink. Add the flower and the printed vellum title. Attach both the background and the transparency together using an eyelet and embellish it with a ribbon.
