UK Stampers ATC Swap - March
The theme for this month's ATC swap on UK Stampers is everyday things. I've seen quite a few background techniques on You Tube this weekend and thought I'd try some out. I'm sorry I can't link directly to the specific clips (they could have been by Jennibellie) but if I find them again I will add them. I decided to use some everyday things to make the BG so I covered card with some newspaper (the FT to be precise). I scribbled oil pastels over the page and then randomly added some torn bits of masking tape and some punched and embossed scraps of card ( an everyday item for any crafter!) I covered the whole sheet with PVA glue and let it dry completely. I pounced denim and raisin alcohol inks all over and then used the cap from a spray can as a stamp with Stazon. The trimming is from a reel I picked up in a charity shop and the stamp is by Crafty Individuals attached with a couple of staples. I finished off the ATCs with an eyelet.
Edited to add: This idea came from this video by Rach0113.
