Just Bloom ATC Duo

Hi there,

it's time for another Stencil Sunday over on the STAMPlorations Blog and I created this ATC Duo.

  • in one of my previous posts I explained how I created the background for several ATCs
  • for this project I chose two of them and applied Texture Paste through the ARTplorations Bloom Silhouettes stencil
  • I used my heat-tool to let the paste bubble up a bit for smooth texture
  • color the floweres with Derwent Inktense Pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • add extra shading with a brown Stabilo All Pencil
  • flick on some splatters with watered-down Distress Oxide Ink (Walnut Stain)
  • ink up the edges with that same brown ink as well
  • print out the sentiment and lay down a basecoat of color with Derwent Inktense Pencils; add more depth with watered-down Distress Oxide Ink (Walnut Stain) 

I hope you got inspired and don't forget to join us for our Mixed Media Challenge over at the STAMPlorations Blog. The theme is always anything mixed media except a card. You must use at least one stencil (any brand) in your project. The Linky closes at the end of the month.



  1. beautiful atcs :) love the sentiments

  2. Great techniques and the result is superb! I love the brighter colours of the flowers against the brown grey hues of the background.
