Leaves of Green

These are my ATCs for Cazro's colour swap for this month. August's colour is dark green. I wanted these ATCs to all have something in common but I did them all using different techniques.

For the first one I stamped the image into Makin's clay. I did the background by sticking skeleton leaves on with PVA glue then painted over everything with acrylic paint and rubbed a layer of metallic rub-on over the top.

For the second one, I painted the background black then sprayed Radiant Rain spray onto it. I then added a layer of UTEE, embedded skeleton leaves into the UTEE, added two more layers and stamped the leaf into it in gold ink.

For the third I did a Versamark resist background using Distress Ink and stamped the leaf into Friendly Plastic.

For the final one, I inked the background with Distress Ink, sprayed it with Cosmic Shimmer Spray and stamped the leaves onto the background. I stamped the leaf in the middle into Makin's clay and layered it onto some plasterboard tape coloured with metallic rub-on.

I haven't been very productive over the last couple of weeks due to my son's birthday and getting ready for my holiday on 16th August. I'm hoping to be back to normal from early September!

I found you by way of Viv's Visuals and just love your ATCs. I'm making jewelry right now but when I get back into fibers/mixed media (any time now, I think) we'll have to arrange a trade.
