MDF ATC’S by Amanda Southern

For this Tuesdays post I have made a trio of ATC’s using That’s Crafty! own brand MDF ATC’s, the surface of these is wonderfully smooth so ideal for stamping onto which is what I have done using stamps from Prima.

Here’s what I did:-

I first tore some strips of old dictionary paper and glued on. I then roughly brushed and splodged on some gesso. Once that was dry I lightly sanded the gesso to ensure I got a clear stamped image over the top. I then chose 3 separate stamps from Prima and stamped one on each one. I stamped some elements separately, the flower and a butterfly, and then cut them out and glued them on as the full deign of these stamps are much bigger than the ATCs I was working on.  The flower was coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils.

I then coloured some elements using Dylusion sprays as water colours. I then added Tim Holtz Industrial Stickers coloured to match with alcohol inks, I also sanded back some of the colour. To finish I also added some elements from Tim’s Remnant Rubs.

Here you can see them individually

What I used:-

Torn Book Pages
Prima Cling Stamps:-  Love Letter, Mindful & Romanticism
Dylusions Sprays:- London Blue, Lemon Zest & Postbox Red
Tim Holtz Deco Industrial Stickers
Alcohol Inks:- Lemonade, Sail Boat Blue & Red Pepper

Thanks and see you next Tuesday
