This one's for a one to one swap for someone who requested a textured ATC. The main image is stamped and then I've added UTEE over the top. The textured background was created by sticking various items on with PVA glue, ie. various types of mesh (I've got a thing about mesh at the moment), micro beads, etc. and then painting over the top with black acrylic paint and going over the top with a metallic rub-on.

(1) Stamped into UTEE with copper embossing powder over the top. Metalllic rub-on on top to give a slightly tarnished look.
(2) Stamped into Funky Foam with metallic rub-ons over the top.
(3) Stamped on shrink plastic and colourwed on the back with Brilliance ink. Background made using Glitz Spritz sprays.
(4) Stamped into 3 layers of Fantasy Film with fusible fibres behind and layered onto two colours of sparkly fabric mesh on a black background.
(5) Stamped into air dry clay, painted with silver acrylic paint and a black acrylic/PVA wash over the top.

These are a couple I did just before I started feeling yucky. The bottom one is a clay face with torn up bits of book page over the top and then painted with acrylic and PVA. I have done the same on the frame, backed it with aluminium mesh , and the Wings are Friendly Plastic. The top one has a Cosmic Shimmer Powder background (on black) with 3 layers of UTEE over the top and the image stamped into it in black Stazon. The Stamp is from Crafty Individuals, and I think this one works really well with the UTEE.

I made these three ATCs yesterday for a woman themed swap. The first one is rubber stamped on a distress ink background, the middle one is rubber stamped on an inked background with acrylic paint and distress inks around the edges, and the last one has a textured background (using different types of mesh and heated PVA and acrylic), with the image stamped into Makin's clay. I painted over the top with acrylic paint and then went over that with metallic rub-on.

Due to an ATC swap I've joined, I've recently been doing a lot of experimenting with Friendly Plastic and have managed to get myself completely hooked. I can't seem to stop playing with it, which is rather worrying considering it's not cheap! (I need some more but will have to wait until next payday!)
I recently made my 1000th ATC!! I've been making them for just under a year and a half, so that works out at over two a day. (Yeek!)
This one's made entirely from Friendly Plastic and embellished with various types of mesh, wire and gems. I sent it to a crafting buddy of mine, Nicks, because she's such a huge inspiration to me. You can check out her work here: http://nicksartystuff.blogspot.com/
