Sin City Stamps Quick Makes Christmas ATCs

Hi all

I started by painting the backgrounds with Brusho powders which are like a watercolor. I then added a layer of modeling paste using a stencil mask and then applying more watercolor once the modeling paste has dries a little.

I then stamped out two Santa's onto white card stock and painted Expandit onto the beard and hat. Expandit is a medium that fluffs up like snow when heat is applied. It is so fun to play with.
I then coloured in the rest of the image with water color and skin tone markers.

I added a few words with an alphabet stamp. I tried to blend it in a bit better by coloring in letters with ink. I have various bits of art stones and micro beads which i added to the ATCs by applying blobs of clear modeling paste to the sections i wanted to sprinkle the bits over. I finished off by adding white thread to the card for extra texture.

I repeated the above steps but with the little hat instead. I used gold glitter paint on the polka dots and once it dried it looks like glitter enamel dots.

Thank you for visiting
