Last of the Coloured Gloss & Texture Paste atc's

I thought I'd post the last few pictures of the Coloured Gloss Card atc technique from the classes that were held last Tuesday night and Thursday morning. Some of the girls have done the painting of their Texture Paste covers from the first class and boy, are they looking wonderful!!! All that great texture and some really cool colour combinations have been created by the girls. These are the last few atc's using the Coloured Gloss Card technique.

"Encircle"... the girl is a Stampotique stamp - Prom Queen.

Here's another picture of "Encircle"...I took this one with my camera (the last one was scanned) as I wanted to show the little bees that I stamped with Brilliance Galaxy Gold as it's one of the very few pigment inks that will dry on gloss card. You can't see them on the scanned image, it just looks like I've stuck 5 swarovski crystals on randomly but I placed them in the centre of the bees. The colour in the one above is much closer to what it actually is.

"Full-orbed moon"... the moon is stamped with Brilliance Platinum Planet (how fitting!)


"Sanctuary"... the messy bit down the bottom is gauze. I drew a nest and it looked like a toddler had scribbled on my card so of course, it had to be fixed! Graphite glimmer mist sprayed on some gauze and then stuck down with some gel medium and it's all fixed, adds a nice textural element too!

"Sanctuary"...close-up

"Queen 3"... a Stampotique stamp - Glimmering Hope.


"Wild & Crazy"...another couple of Stampotique stamp girls (Glimmering Hope & Girl with a lunchbox). I tried out the new Ranger Distress Stickles in Frayed Burlap in the circles, looks kinda cool...not too glittery but very textural.


I posted the Texture Paste Covers off to the winners of my blog giveaway last week and also included an atc with them too, but don't tell the girls that.....it's a surprise! lol I also found an extra cover that I had made but hadn't painted so did another quick random draw and Debbi Baker was the winner of that one. I emailed Debbi and asked her what colour she'd like and she picked my favourite combo of Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold & Dioxazine Purple so hers has also gone postal along with the others. Here's 3 of the atc's that I sent to the winners....sorry Deb, you'll have to wait to see what you get as I didn't scan yours.
"What the hell"...
"In life"...

"Melancholy"...



I've been working on my next class, Embossing Techniques and will post these when I have some more samples done, the plan is over the weekend to get it all done & dusted! We'll see!!! I'll be using a couple of things for embossing that are not normal embossing items. Stay tuned.

As if you could keep a secret from me by posting it on your blog ... LOL. I visit regularly and am so excited that I'll also be getting an ATC ... I've always dreamed of having one of your miniature artworks in my collection. Thanks so much, I'm a very lucky (and excited) girl.
