Under the Sea ATC

This is the disappearing post from last summer ;).  This was published in Scrapbook News and Review in August 2010.  Something I whipped up, forcing myself to add dimension to an ATC. See I usually store my ATCs in trading card pages and so I tend to make them flat but wanted to start adding dimension. This one was a fun experiment. I used Glimmermist Copper & Periwinkle and a teal one I made on some recycled Tyvek envelope. Stamping was with Ranger Vintage ink in Licorice. The mermaid stamp was from Big Lots and then fussy cut out. Used Perfect Pearls in Forever blue on her scales & forever purple on her comb & mirror. Forever red on her hair—all these were applied with water, then layered with Worn Lipstick Distress Stickles. The seahorse and shell are die cut with Cuttlebug Under the Sea (2×6). Then there are fibers and dried lavendar to simulate seaweed, etc. Just in front of the shell, that’s gold tissue paper punched with a Martha Stewart punch, crumpled & layered.  Still not quite what I wanted but definitely dimensional LOL. Thanks for looking & Happy Crafting! P.
