(My ATC for Meagan)
My new ATC trading partner, Meagan and I traded ATCs again this week and this time we set the theme as "asian". I used to do a lot of oriental themed paper arts and I can feel a revival coming on! It took me half an hour just to decide which of my asian themed stamps I would use on this one ATC. But it was fun going through my stamp "catalogue" (which desperately needs updating with all the stamps that I have purchased over the last few years - I used to be so disciplined about stamping new images and recording them by brand in my file but I have got very slack).
For this ATC I used some vintage text (lovely thin paper), a piece of beautiful yuzen paper , a bamboo printed ribbon and some thin red paper tape. I coloured the image with my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, blending with odorless solvent and a stump. It made me realise just how rarely I do detailed colouring.
And this is the gorgeous ATC Meagan made. I love the way she has layered papers on top of each other to get such a lovely effect. And I am applying lots of pressure about starting a blog!!
I have been away with work quite a bit lately and I am away again this week so blogging his taking a bit of back seat but I am working on a few things so I will post about them once they are finished.
