Today’s ATC was a total experiment with no particular theme.
It started with a large format rubber stamp from a recent batch that I received from Impression Obsession, an American company.
The stamp is called Gradation and is made up of a series of dots that range in intensity and density from top to bottom – giving a graduated effect (well named I think you’ll agree).
I first stamped this design out with a blue pigment ink and then coated in clear embossing powder and heat set it.
I then applied some bright pink distress ink over the top of this and sprayed with water so that the ink sank down into the spaces between the dots.
A very thin layer of Diamond Glaze was then applied over the top and allowed to dry.
The finished result looked a little like alien skin, that had been plucked!
However I loved the bright contrast between colours and the abstract dot pattern – think I may use this technique and colour combo for a larger card in the near future.
I will be definitely be collecting the rest of this range of stamps and already have more on order!
To finish I used a little organza ribbon, a painted wooden button and a dazzle gem to add a little unique topping.
And that, my dear chums, concludes today’s mini make – what do you think – like it?
