* Vera Lane Studio: You say Goodbye And I Say Hello


This month Janet at Vera Lane Studio is hosting the ATC swap and she's chosen the theme of The Beatles. I've really enjoyed making my ATCs inspired by the lyrics in some of The Beatles' songs!

Here is my third Beatles' Lyrics ATC.
(You can see the first one here and the second one here.)

This time I used the images from Back to Back. I coloured them with Copic markers and added some white highlights. I fussy cut them and glued them directly onto the background using the black and white zetti-like stems from Stems and Circles to ground the girl.
The background is smooth card smooshed in Brushos to which I added some texture with stamping and some stars and dots with a stencil and modelling paste. White splatters were also added with watered down acrylic paint. The edges of the ATC were edged with Jet Black Archival Ink. 
I printed the lyrics and cut them into sections, inked the edges and added them to the card. 
To finish I added some Diamond Stickles to the background and a fine line border.

Back to Back             Stems and Circles

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
