Marbled and Crackle ATC's

The last two sessions with Kelsey have been on marbling and metallic crackle.


The background has been done with the marbling technique using Distress Reinkers in Fired Brick and Black Soot. I have then stamped the background using one of Michelle Ward's stamps.
German scrap with some Treasure Silver and some read pearls complete the piece.


The background for this is using the metallic crackle backround in Halo Blue Gold (Lumiere) on black card. The gold embellishment at the top is from the cuttlebug range - Wrought Iron. The picture is of silent screen actress Theda Bara.

'Children Need Love'

This has used the same background technique as above. I have used a metallic copper and then dry brushed some Jo Sonja Iridescent Turquiose to give it an aged patina. German scrap, brads and some Cinnamon Stickles add interest and Treasure Copper and more Iridescent Turquoise to the edges, complete the piece.

Happy Crafting

Another Journal Page

It has taken me some time to get this page how I wanted it!! The stem and leaves are a stencil that I have designed and cut out of plastic and used Distress Inks over the top of. The quote is from the 'Quote Garden' website. I have masked the central flower and used green distress ink around it to make it more prominent and to add focus to the overall piece.
Hope you like it.

I have also been working on some more ATC's and will post them in the next few days.

Happy crafting.

Sonia :-)
