Another ATC in Craft Stamper!
Thanks Linda for letting me know that I was in Craft Stamper again....I still haven't got round to subscribing yet so I have to dash into Worcester to get it on the day it comes out...my excuse is I'm waiting for the freebie!
I entred two atc's in their summertime challenge, the atc that craft stamper have published uses the "Go to the Cornish Riveira" stamp from the Tanda Advert Plate 3. I stamped the image in black stazon and then watercoloured using the Works pearlised paints. This was then sealed with acrylic varnish before being triple embossed with clear ep. I edged in Krylon to give the impression of those old fashioned tin advert plates. The small shells were collected from the beach a couple of years ago, the gold accent beads represent the golden sand and both these were fixed using glossy accents.
The second atc, which was not shown in the magazine, was made in exactly the same way, except I used a stamp from Tanda Advert Plate 4.
Unfortunately the photo in the magazine doesn't quite do my atc justice as it looks a little brassy, these photos are a much better colour representation of the real thing.
thanks for looking
