The ladies love a good perfume – right?
Well I hope so as that is the theme of today’s Artist Trading Card.
Well, it’s either that or you could call this one “coming up smelling of roses”.
Anyway, this creation was a bit of a mash-up again with various things going on.
It started with the main design which was a perfume bottle stamp that I stamped out a while ago and cut out with my Brother Scan N Cut. I added some colour to this using Spectrum Noir pencils and blending the colour with blending solution.
Job done on that. Now for the background.
I started out by stamping a single red rose (a stamp from Crafter Stamper magazine) in purple Versafine ink.
I then created some masks from post it notes, using this stamp, and then began building up the background.
This was then trimmed down and I added some pink/purple distress ink to darken it down a little.
The edges of the background were then inked with a black pigment ink (so that it sat away from the coordinating background cardstock).
The perfume bottles were applied with thin foam pads at the bottom and the bottle necks were stuck directly to the background.
I was tempted to spritz it with some of my Joop! but thought that the alcohol in that might have affected the colouring on the perfume bottles – so I’ll leave it to you to imagine whatever fave scent you have.
And there we have it, another mini make for my ATC365 challenge. I’ve been covering all sorts of themes – I hope that I can keep the ideas coming for the next 340 ATCs!
