Turn Your Can'ts Into Cans ATC

The third ATC that I made for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is chock full of techniques and layering. This one is actually a reworking of one with the same stamped sentiment that I previously did not like how it turned out.

So I stripped it down to the base and covered the background by scrapping gesso on it to hide the previous background and prep the surface. I then, painted it with Dina Wakley Tangerine Heavy Body acrylic and once dry, I stenciled it with the Magenta Quatrefoil stencil with gesso. I stamped the Magenta sentiment with Tim Holtz Black Soot Archival ink and then covered it with clear fine embossing powder and heat set it. Next, I adhered the mesh with gel medium and then splattered the base in Black acrylic paint and with a white poster marker. Once dry, I assembled the ATC from little bits that I both reused from the original project as well as some leftover little pieces from my past creations. Besides the mesh, I reused the punched butterfly and sequins from the original project. From previous projects I used the muslin glass bead gel stenciled flowers that I fussy cut out and and the silhouette cut foliage which I coloured with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink to match the mesh and .
