Alcohol Background ATCs - Brown #2 (May2008)

Created: May 6/08

Modified: June 1, 2008

All of these start off with several alcohol ink backgrounds either streaked or mottled and on Pearlized "Cream" paper or glossy photo paper. Check out the samples of the various backgrounds I made creating streaks and mottled patterns. Link at the bottom of the page.

I also raided my decorative paper stash. Most are papers I picked up during an "open to the public" sale at Select Imports, which is a wholesale distributor. I have an addiction for paper, so am always picking something up, but very rarely use them in my artwork. I prefer decorating and using my own papers. This was an exception. It combined both!! These papers are very textural and usually hand dyed, some are faux leatherette, one is a black open webbed type paper.

They also all deal with a "Key" theme. The large key & lock are from Just Jhones "This & That" sheet. The border keys are from Stubby Stampers #3878. The Key charm on this page is from a cheapie brand.

I rubber stamped the images with either gold stamp pad and embossed with Queen's gold or Detail gold. The others I stamped with Pheasant gold and embossed with Hematite. the lettering was either done with a black micron pen or Dr martin's Bleed Proof white with a quill nib.

I used four main cardstocks, a cream toned Bazzill monochromatic, a speckled dark brown Mi-Tientes, a rusty brown (unknown) and a black value pack cardstock.
