These are for Cazro's Let's Stamp Swap on the DoCrafts forum. This month's theme is triple embossing for a glossy finish.
I visited the Lake District a few weeks ago and was lucky enough to call in at the factory shop for Derwent Pencils. I picked up a HUGE box of watercolour pencils half price, and there were some pastel pencils free with it as well. As you can imagine, I have been exsperimenting with them ever since.
To do these ATCs, I started off by inking and stamping the backgrounds, stamping the main images and then bleaching out the colour from the main images. I then coloured them using watercolour pencils and triple embossed them with three layers of UTEE.

I had a day off last Friday, so managed to make some encaustic art ATCs. These are the first ones I've done in a while, so I'm a bit rusty, but I think they turned out OK.
I'm off today as well, but not because I want to be!

Unfortunately the photos don't show up the shimmeriness (is that a word?)
I made the background using Starburst Sprays, with Papermania Vinyls as masks.
I then stamped the backgrounds in distress inks and the flowers in black archival ink. I also stamped the dragonflies directly onto the ATCs because I am lazy and didn't want to cut out the legs. (Well, I tried, but they kept falling off!)

I have some trees as well, so there will be more to come!

The idea is to draw a face with your eyes closed and then to make it into a character.
The images are drawn using Promarkers and black artist pen, with a bit of white gel pen.
The backgrounds were created using collage, inks, acrylic paints and pens.

I used printed text and music score, watercolours, tissue paper, acrylic paint, glitter gel pens and Precious Metal paint.
I used layered stamping, and I used wax crayon resist on the owl and the angels.

I have a rare day off where I'm not trying to cram a million things into it, so will try and catch up a bit.I've still been creating things as and when I've had the time so will post pictures of some of the things I've been doing.
These are some emboss resist ATCs I created using distress inks.
