ATC's done today
There is an upcoming ATC show in my area so I have started to make some ATC's to take for it.
The metal one was done using HVAC metal repair tape that you get at the hardware store. I love this stuff! I applied black acrylic paint to darken it up a bit. It was a little flimsy even on the cardstock so I attached it to a piece of Chipboard to make it stronger. The other bits on this were stuff I had around the house. The bottlecap is actually rusted, but you can't see that in the scan. The element in the middle was actually an old earring-I think my husband brought it home to me, like YEARS ago. It has been in a drawer of mine, waiting to be used. I just used wire cutters to cut off the earring part and voila! Worked beautifully. I just wish it would scan better!
The Angel one was done on loose canvas-I transferred the image to the canvas. The piece of Canvas was painted beforehand and stamped with text in solvent ink.
