Isolation Skype Craft 3 - the mini version

ATCs with PaperArtsy Stamps by Lin Brown and Alison Bomber

Hi everyone and welcome to the third Skype Craft post of Isolation! Alison, Brenda and I met virtually for just an hour last Saturday. Well it was probably an hour of crafting, maybe a little longer chatting. This makes a change from our normal marathon sessions!!!

It was just an excuse to catch up really - we didn't have any rules - we just did what we wanted while chatting. Alison has put the idea of a trio of ATC's into my head so this is what  did.

My background was created with PaperArtsy Chalk paints and a couple of circle stencils. I brayered paint over the surface and then placed a stencil over to remove some - just gives a subtle effect. I then added a paler colour back through the stencil with a sponge and finally a darker colour by stamping with another circle stencil.

I stamped these wonderful leaves (PaperArtsy, Lin Brown) with versamark and heat embossed with  a vivid green powder.

  2. Like Helen, I love the vivid green - it's that zingy embossing which takes these to another level. The bubbly backgrounds are beautiful, full of ocean depths, and then the leaves arrive like a shot of vibrant energy. And the words... wonderful, wonderful!

  3. Stunning layers of blue and green to bring such life and vitality to this fabulous trio of ATCs. Each of those delightful leaf images springs from the depths of those deep azure blues bringing both the land and sea together. A fabulous way to spend time creating little masterpieces whilst catching up with crafty friends. Thanks for being there.
