* Vera Lane Studio: ATCs

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I have some Vera Lane Studio projects to share. 

I made a couple of ATCs following the Black and White with a Pop of Colour theme:


The backgrounds were made with acrylic paint and plastic wrap. I love the way they turned out.  Simply take some card, coat with gesso and let it dry. Spritz water over gessoed surface, add desired acrylic colour in blobs and use a paintbrush to spread and mix. The paint needs to be fluid, but quite thick - remember the more paint you use, the longer it takes to dry. Next lay plastic wrap over the painted card and push and crinkle the wrap into wrinkles all over. Allow the paint to dry thoroughly, preferably overnight, and then remove the wrap. (Here is a short video that I found online which shows the technique.)

The images are all coloured with alcohol pens and fussy cut. 

The tree has some Nuvo Crystal Drops on the apples and the baby raccoon has Glossy Accent eyes and nose. A part sentiment was cut into strips and glued directly onto the background.  Washi tape was torn and used along the top and bottom edges. Green sticker gems were added in the corners and a white, hand drawn Posca pen border finishes the ATC off.

I love the textured look to this background. Again I tore washi tape and used it along the edges as a border. The flowers are simply printed and fuss cut - no colouring here, but I added Glossy Accents to them. The cat has Glossy Accent eyes.
