Catch A Falling Star ATC by Fliss Goodwin


Hello everyone, I can’t believe Friday is here again and I think time goes more quickly on the run up to a certain festive day! As winter is now firmly here, I have a wintery ATC to share, which was one of the samples I created for the last Hochanda shows.


That’s Crafty! Surfaces Bits & Pieces Greyboard Sheets – Fairies and Wings, Moon and Stars
That’s Crafty! Shimmer Paints – Dark Blue, Pearl, Pink, Purple


First give the ATC a coat of white gesso. This is not essential but I find it gives a good grounding for later layers of paint.

Next, apply dots of the shimmer paints to your craft mat and pick the colour up with a paint brush to add swipes of colour roughly diagonally across the surface of the ATC. Carry on until the surface is covered.

Stamp the stars text twice on the painted surface to the top and bottom opposite corners with the black ink and heat emboss with the clear embossing powder. Stamp showers of stars in between with the pink ink.

Take the girl on the moon greyboard shape that best fits the ATC size and paint her with a couple of coats of black multi surface paint to give a strong silhouette effect.

Paint a star yellow and when dry, brush glitter glue over the top for some sparkle. Paint some of the stamped stars with the glitter glue and run some around the outer edge of the ATC surface.

Glue the silhouette and the star on to finish, positioning the star so that it looks as if the girl is catching it.

We have a new challenge for you today over at That’s Crafty! Challenge Blog so do hope over to see how you can win a great prize and to look at the amazing inspiration from the design team.

Have a great weekend and see you next week.
