Shine Bright ATC

Okay, a rarity for sure... a second post for the day! As I was gathering scraps and cleaning up from my Happy 2017 card, inspiration struck again and I made this ATC out of some of them.

Supplies: Dina Wakley Acrylic Paints [Night, Ocean, Sterling, White, Lime], Star Bright stamp set, gesso, Stickles, white embossing powder (Ranger), white cardstock (CTMH), black cardstock (Bazzill), Signo white pen (Mitsubishi Pencil Co.), star jewels and purple metallic thread (Dollarama)

This came together so fluidly. I just love when that happens! The best part is that I am extremely pleased with the background that I created for this little mixed media gem. I just played with paint and love how it worked.

First, I gessoed the ATC cardstock base and once dry I added some dabs of my new Dina Wakley Acrylic paints in Ocean and Night. I spritzed the card with water and then using a paint brush. I dragged the colours out and let them blend. Next, once it was dry I stamped on Sterling for some shine with a scrap piece of bubble wrap. Lastly, I stamped the shine sentiment from Dina Wakley's Star Bright stamp set with her white paint. I love, love, love, how it turned out!

Assembling the ATC, I added purple metallic thread, silver Stickles, and two star jewels with the scraps and newly made background.

Naturally, as the same inspirations from Simon Says Stamp Monday ChallengeWork It Wednesday monthly challenge and  Mixed Media and Art were still at play as the original Happy 2017 card, I am adding them into the same challenges once again.
