More Brushless Watercolour

I had such a great time with this technique I just kept on playing with it, so I have some more samples to show you. But firstly, there is yet one more Alcohol Ink & Transparency atc from the last class, this was the raffle one for the Thursday class.

Onto the Brushless Watercolour atc's.
"Ornate"... (stamp by Lost Coast Designs)

"Chaos"... (head stamp by Lost Coast Designs & a few watch parts, background stamp by Green Pepper Press - Rough Draft plate)

"Indulge"... (stamp by Zetti, plus the ubiquitous Black Texture Paste!!!)

"In the Moment"... (stamps from Tim Holtz Nature's Moments plate). For this one I did the Brushless Watercolour stamping on the underneath white card, then stamped the quote onto a piece of Vellum, stitched the vellum to the coloured card and added some Swarovski crystals to the left. This would make a nice card technique!

These are the raffle atc's, they are 2 separate atc's made with the one large stamp 'Dragonfly Legend' by Stampers Anonymous (page #5).

"Dragonfly" set 1... (I've used Antique Linen Distress Stickles on the wing on the left card and also on the body on the right card - very subtle glass-like shimmer and great texture!)

"Dragonfly" set 2... (I've used Gold micro beads on the left card and the right card below - click for a close-up!)

So that's it until I post my next ones for the Clear embossing & rub'n'buff class. These are notoriously difficult to scan or photograph so I don't know how we'll go with that. Until then, either stay warm if you are in the States with all that snow, or stay cool if you are over East of Australia with the bushfires & heat!

Love these beautiful ATCs, especially the Apathy card with the transparency and alcohol ink. The dragonfly diptyches are fantastic, too! I just love the way you've inked up the German Scrap.

These are great Kelsey! (As always!). I made a card and an ATC yesterday, and they made me think of you! They're on my blog. :)

Chris said...

these are great. You know I love that dragonfly!

That first alcohol ink card... Do you use the ranger applicator with those? I love them, but Iuse my finger. I was buying a few more of them, and I saw the applicator that I've seen Tim work with, and I just couldn't bring myself to get it.

Do you think I need to be disciplined?

My favourite ATC: Your 'Apathy' alochol ink & transparency. Amazing how using only one colour can be so bold & with minimal embellishments. While green is still my all time favourite, next on my list is brown, yet I havent quite mastered putting together browns with mediums. But my clothes and house, well they're covered in brown.

Beautiful work, Kelsey. You keep coming up with new things, it is amazing.
Great "Apathy" card.
Hope you are well.
