Magenta Nuances Masterboard ATCs Part 2

Last Friday, over on the Magenta blog, I shared the first three ATCs in a three part series all made from a masterboard created using the three original Nuance blues.  If you missed out on last week's first edition post, you can find it here.

To recap, I took a masterboard created on a 9 x 12 piece of 90lb watercolour paper using Nuance blue colours (Turquoise, Cerulean Blue, and Royal Blue).  I cut it into nine - 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" pieces and created a bunch of ATCs using stencils and stamps from the Summer 2016 collection with the added touch of gold foil. Each background piece was unique and the background colour helped determine what additional colours and/or designs would best suit it.

For the background, I used the cute Doily mask and created three circular sections with it by colouring them Grass Green Nuance. Once dry, I repositioned the mask back to where it was used and I used a white pen to add floral details. Next, I positioned the Flower Silhouette stencil and filled it in with a glue stick before adding the gold foil to it. I let it sit for 5 minutes prior to removing the foil sheet to ensure that the glue had set up. I ran the glue stick along the edges of the card and added gold foil there too. Lastly, I heat emboss stamped the Wonderful World sentiment.

For this ATC, I went with a wet on wet watercolour technique and dried the paper between colour addition layers. First, I heat embossed the Wild Rose flower image in black. After water colouring with Hot Pink and Grass Green Nuance, I heat embossed the "magic all around" parts of the sentiment stamp that I wanted in white and added some grey marker shadowing to make it pop. Lastly, I masked off the image with its' stamp backing and glue stamped the background with my favourite Script and Postmark stamp and added the gold foil.

This one required a little creative colour mixing as I intentionally wanted to create "mud" or rather, hues of brown. After heat emboss stamping the Doodle Feather in black, I started with a bit of Yellow and Purple Nuance powders and a few spritzes of water on my craft mat. Then, I mixed in some Golden Yellow and filled in the whole feather and adding some to the background. Then, I added some Orange Nuance to deepen the colour and added it to sections of the feather. I used the stamp's backing as a mask and splatter a bit of watered down gesso for some background interest. Once the card was completely dry, I stamped the Carpe Diem sentiment in two parts using VersaMark and Ranger Sticky embossing powder. Next, I added the gold foil. Lastly, I inked the edges of the card with Distress ink and then added a few splatters of glue and a touch of gold foil to finish it off.

Very cool! I love all of the details. The colours, the phrases, the images all worked perfectly.
