express yourself!

Well hey there,
Here I am today with....no not a tag!!! An ATC..
It is challenge time over at stampotique and I have not joined in for such a long time, I decided now was the time!!!So here she is:

I started with the specialty stamping paper from ranger atc and stamped this fab lady.
I then made a mask for her and inked the background using green DI.When dry I added splatters in pumice stone and flicked water and blotted . Love this effect on this specialty stamping paper.I then added a cobweb using wings stamp and some of these great swirly things..technical term there! All the stamps are Stampotique.
Finally buoyed along the faux patina road, I made some faux patina wings, and added a little bottle filled with beads..which I coloured using alcohol ink.

To complete I added the new chit chat stickers for my sentiment.
I am entering this for the following competitions:
ATCs for Stampotique @ http://stampotiquedesignerschallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/sdc53-atc-artist-trading-cards.html

I had so much fun making this , I can feel a few more ATC's coming on....

oh and before I go , I am having some wonders worked on my blog, more on that later ..so if things change they are being made wonderful by Susie @ http://1stfloorflat.co.uk/.

have a fab, fun and inky day!
