I have popped in to show you a set of ATCs that I made for a Swap in January over at YOUR PAPER PANTRY.
There was a cool video that Stephanie did showing us how to make the Northern Lights background with inks and daubers and then stamping trees on there. I had a go........ I didn't have the sorts of inks and stuff she had and only had 1 tree stamp, but I managed to prepare my backgrounds and then feed them into the printer to put some trees on there. These are silhouette digis from BECCY's PLACE.
I didn't then have any daubers either so smurged mine with fingers and make-up sponges. The hills were masked off before the sky was done and the stars are done with a white nail art pen :-D
Had to wait until now cuz I lost the photos that I took and had to ask Steph to do it :-D
The top centre one I tried on photographic paper but it didn't work out so good - but when I rubbed it I got that coooooool turquoise bit where the ink started to come off !!! :-D
I really enjoyed trying a new technique and can't wait to get my Swaps back from the other Girls. I've seen a couple and they look awesome !! :-D
Thanks for dropping by xxxxxxxxxxxx
