MIni Art

   ATC post for today.  I joined a Unity ATC group and love that as it will encourage me to use my stamps!!!



 Apparently I was in a purple mood the days I created these ATC's.  I used Distress Oxide Inks on these projects.  For this first ATC, I lightly used blue ink over the image which I stamped in Black Tuxedo Memento ink on Neenah cardstock. I colored in the butterfly with Copics. Next, I used 2 different stencils and added more Distress Ink in blues and purples. And, I added a Dew Drop in blue. There is also a touch of sparkle inside the dragonfly,


 This ATC uses the technique Jennifer McGuire showcased recently where you lift color from flowers using a waterbrush. I added sparkle in the small dots around the flowers using a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.

Thanks for stopping by!
