I still love the thrill of receiving atcs through the post - there is something very exciting about owning another persons art work. I made this atc for a swap on a forum I belong to called Running with Scissors. I really enjoyed the theme which was words. I made the background using wild honey distress ink then over stamped with a paperartsy cog stamp in rusty hinge. I have then used archival coffee for the paperartsy eye and archival jet black for the words. I then had a thought - would water "bleach" out the white of the eye? and of course it did! Thats the great thing about distress inks they are sooo versatile. Then layered up onto a black mount and its finished. Cant wait for my swaps to arrive!
Watch this space - an exciting atc swap is to be revived and I cant wait to share that with you!
