* Vera Lane Studio: Friendship ATCs


At Vera Lane Studio we have a monthly ATC swap in the Facebook group, and this month the theme is Friendship.

Here are my ATCs:

The first ATC features a digi stamp from the Bread, Butter and Flower set:

 I used the girl kitty, Butter - isn't she cute!  She's coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut and I added Flower as a balloon for her to carry to her friend. Look at her sweet words! She truly is a great friend!
The background is Distress Oxides in Mustard Seed and Seedless Preserves with some modelling paste through a stencil for texture. Butter stands on some washi tape, the edges of the ATC are inked in Distress Oxide and Ranger black ink and I added 3 tiny golden coloured gems for a bit of sparkle. Flower and Butter both have Glossy Accent eyes.

My second ATC features one of Vera's Owls:

I chose the owl with the heart since the theme is all about Friendship. Again I coloured the owl with Copic markers, adding some detail and highlighting with a white Posca pen. The owl was fussy cut and popped on foam pads. He was given a washi strip to stand upon. I love his punny message - good friends are always there for us no matter what!
The background is acrylic paint applied to the card with a brayer. Texture paste was applied through stencil to create the triangles, but being white, they didn't stand out so much, so I outlined them with a black fineliner pen. I added some clear crystal gems and inked the edges of the ATC and finished it off with a hand drawn border. My owl has Glossy Accent eyes.
