This is the first "just for the sake of it" ATC I've done in ages. The background is heated acrylic paint and metallic rub-on. The heart is freehand embossed on aluminium and I've coloured it using alcohol inks and sanded it for a distressed look. I've added a heart gem and some mesh, and the word "passion" which is stamped into Friendly Plastic.

Unfortunately I couldn't get a very good photo of it, probably because it's dark, or maybe because my photography skills are not up to much! It's not quite as dark as it looks in the picture.

Feeling Blue

In complete contrast to my previous post, here are some pretty flowers!
Done using alcohol inks and gel pens.

Inspired by Clive Barker

These are some ATCs I made inspired by the artwork of Clive Barker, for a swap on ATCs for All.

I did them using oil pastels, which I have to say is easier said than done when working on an ATC scale!

I can't seem to get over the obsession with all things grim and gory. Still, it's better than that bout of prettyitis I had a while back!

MIxed Media Cats

These are some cat ATCs I've made using watercolours and pens on an inked and stamped background. I'm really enjoying doing ATCs with a hand drawn or painted element at the moment, and of course I love bright colours!
