I joined a “Just a Little Spooky” atc swap. I had to make two and since it’s a mixed media/creative group, they needed to be stepped up a bit from what I would normally do. I spent hours working on them and hope the recipient likes them!
The first one is a witch from Lil Inker Designs. She is from a set called Bats & Broomsticks.
I embossed her with Brilliance Graphite Black ink and SU black embossing powder. Then I added Faber Castell Glass Bead Glitter Glue with the Simon Says Stamp Falling Stars stencil. I let it dry naturally for a bit and then used my heat gun on it. I then sprayed it with Tim Holtz Wilted Violet distress stain spray and sponged on Seedless Preserves and Black Soot distress ink. I wiped a baby wipe over it to take away some of the ink off the witch and the stars. I decided to add the sentiment in white. It didn’t emboss fully because of the black embossing underneath but I think it still looks okay.
This next ATC uses the uber popular Tim Holtz Crazy Birds and Crazy Birds accessories set.
My fingers are still a bit orange from this atc LOL! I added Carved Pumpkin distress ink to a Tim Holtz Alterations spider web embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot. Then I added a few words from the Tim Holtz Halloween layering stencil using Black Soot distress ink. I stamped the crazy bird and the witch hat and cut them out with my Scan N Cut. It nicked a few of parts of the wings so I stamped them again and added them on. The bird and hat were colored with copics. I added Gold Wink of Stella to the witch’s hat and glossy accents to the bird’s eyes.
I need to go get a few more cards made before the Cubs/Mets game tonight!
