ATC Challenge

Oh My Word what an absolutely fantastic weekend I have had.  Firstly it was the Happy Stampers show in Port Sunlight on Saturday - had an absolutely great day bought loads of nice goodies, some new stamps from Clarity and another from IndigoBlu I also got a lovely stencil/mask from Clarity and some from Andy Skinner and what I also got was my Gelli plate - can't wait to have a play with that  whoop whoop watch this space.  ( wont get time today though)

Then on Sunday I went to a workshop at the Stamp Pad in Greenfield where Gwen Fletcher was hosting a workshop run by Andy Skinner we did this amazing Image transfer box isn't it cool I love it.

It was a brilliant day and I loved every minute of it 

Anyway the real reason for this blog is to say how I made this little ATC for a group I am in.  We exchange an ATC every month to a specific person within the group and each month we have a theme. The them for May was texture and the only stamps we can use are Clarity ones.

So this is my offering which went to my friend Sam  and I have been asked how I did it so here we go.
Firstly I sprayed some red dylusion on my card and dried it off.  I then smeared some glue and seal over part of the card and scribbled into it with the pallet knife and allowed to dry.  I then added a couple of squirts of blue dylusion and wiped it off.  That way it didn't colour where the glue and seal was.  I then put a mask over and put some embossing paste through the round holes and left to dry.  when dry I put the mask back over and and coloured with some more of the red - I just picked it up from my mat and painted on so that it only coloured the dots.
I stamped two maple leaves from Clarity stamp onto the card and embossed with clear embossing then I drew around with a fine black pen.  I stamped another and embossed with frantage gold enamel.  I stamped another in weathered wood and one in cranberry embossed these with clear then cut them out and stuck on.
Finally I squirted some goosebumps  on and left to dry.

And all that work for a piece of card 3.5 x 2.5 inches xx
