July ATC Memories In Texture



I placed a piece of plastic mesh vegetable bag and glued string on to cereal box cardboard cut to ATC size. I then wrapped heavy duty aluminium foil over the top and gently rubbed over the surface to emboss the textures. The extra foil was wrapped to the back of the card. next I sponged FW acrylic ink over the foil and heat set. I brushed diluted Diamond Glaze and allowed it to dry. I added a glass leaf bead and a metal tag embossed with "memories" using a silver brad to hold it in place.

The back is watercolour paper, misted with water and the FW acrylic inks dropped on and moved around a bit to blend. This was also heat set. This is a little more like I expected with the dragonfly backgrounds, but I'm liking both now.
