Credit Card Technique is the class we're doing for this fortnight's ATC Technique lessons.  The last time I did this class was 3 years ago and some of the newer girls haven't done this amazingly easy, but beautiful background technique.  Because I have girls who have been with me from the very beginning (about 7 years now!!!), they will have done this technique before, so I like to play around with the technique so they will learn something new.  I am using both water and rubbing alcohol spritz this time and also doing the technique over printed book pages!  Amazing what a little difference a shake-up can make.  Hope the girls enjoy the changes.  At the bottom are the full size backgrounds so you can see what they look like before they are cut up into atc sized pieces.
"Fly Away"... (pale blue & silver from above)
 "Snow White"...

"Own Wings"...

All these sample pieces below are A5 in size so you can get about 3 or 4 atc's from each sheet.
Rubbing Alcohol & Water Spritz with a gold shimmer that you can't see.
Water spritz only on book paper background.  You need to click on this one to see the words that peek through the water spots.  Love how this turned out!
A very pale blue paint with silver metallic paint over the top and rubbing alcohol droplets.  Unfortunately metallic just doesn't show up well on the computer screen.  You'll just have to try it for yourself to see how wonderful it looks in real life.  Two of the atc's above have this as their background.

More samples to follow.
