* Vera Lane Studio: Fun Collage ATCs


I have two ATCs to show today using the fabulous Fun Collage Sheet from Vera Lane Studio.

These are pdf sheets and once downloaded just need to be printed. The colours are beautifully vibrant and you could experiment with different types of card. Once fussy cut, the possibilities are endless!

I fussy cut all my images right up to the black outline, then ran around the cut edge with a black marker to hide any cutting imperfections. I added some white highlights to the images with a white Posca pen.

For this girly 'Let It Go' ATC, I applied Distress Oxides in Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord, through a stencil, then edged the ATC with black ink. I brayered some Snowflake PaperArtsy paint over the stencilling to knock back the pattern.
I added touches of glitter to the flower.  I placed a torn strip of the digital washi along the bottom of the ATC to ground the girl and flower. The flower was glued directly onto the background whilst the girl was popped on foam tape. I cut the pretty scalloped border/label and used the scallops to accent the washi and to add some detail at the top edge. Glossy Accents was added to the scallops for dimension and shine. The sentiment is from the Tiny Words collage sheet

My second 'Happy Bird-day' ATC also has a stencilled Distress Oxide background, this time using Peacock Feathers. It is brayered over with Snowflake paint and edged with black ink. I used the rest of the scalloped border/label from the first ATC to ground my images. The birdie is glued directly to the background and the cake is on foam tape. I added Glossy Accents to the cake's candles and icing and Stickles to the candle flames. Extra scallops were placed at the top edge of the ATC and both lots of scallops are covered with Glossy Accents. The sentiment was typed and printed using Vera Lane Studio's font, Baby Powder.


I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
