It’s been a while since I played with ATCs

but the Smeared and Smudged Ink Group “Art in Your Pocket” had an ATC swap for April with an open theme but each must include “paint”.  Someone, er –um, maybe me ;), got carried away.  For the background, I started with a piece of off white cardstock.  I began to drizzle, dob with a stencil brush, and smoosh Liquitex Matt Basics Red and Blue acrylics, then various crafting acrylics in White, Caribbean Blue and Burgundy.  Even as acrylics, I got impatient for them to dry and got out the heat gun, which added a few bubbles.  I also spritzed liberally with Pewter Shimmering Mist and Copper & Periwinkle Glimmer Mists (Tattered Angels).  Let all this dry overnight and trimmed to pieces 2.25″ x 3.25″ and mounted to burgundy cardstock trimmed to ATC size.  The image & sentiment are from Fiskars/ For the Birds Set clear stamps & stamped in Black Archival Ink (Ranger).  Check out the great group at:
