Adventure ATC

Here's another ATC that I've created using Clear Scraps acrylic ATC pieces.

To create one of this ATC, follow the steps below.

1) Use a Clear Scraps acrylic ATC piece as the base for this ATC.

2) To distress it, use the "Emboss on Edges to Distress" technique and later ink it with alcohol ink. In my example, I've used Denim, Espresso, Silver Mixatives and Gold Mixatives alcohol inks. Use some solvent ink to stamp some old script to it too.

3) Cut out a piece of pattern paper and use the "Extreme Punching to Distress" technique to distress it. Ink it's edges with distress ink and paste it on the bottom from the back of the acrylic ATC.

4) I've printed some vintage images from my computer and cut them out. Ink their edges with distress ink and add them to the ATC. The hand is added using foam adhesives to give some dimension to the ATC.

5) I've stamped the "Adventure" stamp image using solvent ink onto a card stock and cut it out. Ink it's edges with distress ink and highlight some areas with a white gel pen and liquid pearls.

6) I've painted the metal embellishment with some alcohol ink to match this ATC and later use a sanding block to sand it's surface a little to remove some of the ink on it. Add it to the ATC.

Hope you all like this ATC as well and decided to try creating one of these yourself. I'll be posting a stamp giveaway soon. Do keep an eye for it.

Wow! Very cool ATC and maybe just what our group needs to try sometime. We get into a rut and then it gets boring, but this sure would spice up the group.
