ID: Walnut -
I rubber stamped the words
(Quietfire Design rubber stamp) onto a pinky toned vellum and gold embossed it. I cut close
to the words with a deckle edged blade and glued it to my ATC with vellum tape.
I glued on a yellow rhinestone butterfly. Mounted it onto brown cardstock.
If nothing ever changed there'd be no butterflies
How I made the Background: (this is
the same for the next 6 ATC's
I started with a large sheet of Arches Text
wove paper. Used a large chisel brush and walnut ink and wrote words all over
the paper and at various angles (dream, believe, love, inspire et). When that
was dry I used a wet brush to swish across the words so that things bled into
each other. When that was dry, I turned the paper 90 degrees and wrote the words
of the song "The Impossible Dream" using purple ink and a 1.5m Pentel
Parallel Pen. When that was dry I sprayed it with workable fixative and wrote
large words again with walnut ink, smushed some more and let that dry. I then
used Dr martin's metallic inks in bronze and copper and wrote words using the
ink dropper, and on very wet areas place a tissue and pressed down to remove
some of the excess ink. My page was now ready to cut up into ATC rectangles.
