Can't resist an ATC or two(or four!)

The other evening there was nothing I needed to concentrate on on the TV so I was able to finish off my ATCs!
They were started in my craft room.
A little distress ink on my mat from another project and some smooshing! There was also some drying lace on my desk so some of them were 'printed' with that 
 I used some transparent gloss gel through a stencil to create a resist then...
..added more Picked Raspberry DI over a mask. I rubbed off the ink and stamped a Kim Dellow stem and a Jo Firth-Young bubble stem and rubbed off the ink from the hearts.
I then stamped the bubble stems again on white paper and sat in front of the TV and coloured them green before cutting out the bubbles and sticking them in place.
I used some sparkly pens to fill in the KD stems and the dots around the JOFY bubbles and added some Tim Holtz Seasonal Chit Chat stickers.

I would like to enter my ATCs at Paper Artsy - I have loved seeing the new stamps on ATCs

The ATCs are lovely, Chris! I never thought of gloss gel through a stencil as a resist. Very clever. I loved reading exactly how you made them.

Wonderful ATCs - the colour and layering is fabulous!

Love them!!!! Love how you explain the whole process too. I haven't done and ATC in forever. USed to do them all the time. I've been missing in action the past couple of weeks due to a bad cold and a computer failure. Both of us are back on line again. I"m still coughing but thankfully the hubby was able to restore the computer and it's running like a charm ♥
