I used the April KOTM to make my ATC's for the Unity Swap this month.
I stamped the pear image in Black Memento Tuxedo ink, and colored it using Artesa water brush pens. I outlined the pear with a Sakura Starburst Gelly roll pen. I used a SU color that I have not cut into for which I have Washi that coordinates beautifully. The watermarked stamp in the background is from a Unity grab bag.
This ATC uses Distress Oxide inks. First, I stamped the bee image, and then a mask on a post it note. I aplied the background stamp and embossed it using clear embossing powder. I inked up the background using Honey Distress Oxide ink. Next, I placed a stencil over the corners of the ATC and used Purple Distress Oxide ink and sponged over it. I stamped the bees on Vellum, and cut out just the wings. The base bee has a touch of purple ink on it as well as the underside of the vellum. The top of the vellum has Wink of Stella on it for shimmer.
And, I have swapped 2 ATC's with 9 other crafters, so my desk is just covered with ATC's. I cannot put them away yet- too fun to look at!
Thanks for stopping by!
