'Stay Strong' ATCs

Hello and welcome!

Georgie here with you today and this week I'm sharing a pair of ATCs that I have created.

Some Dina Wakley paints 'came into my possession' a little while a go and I've been sitting on them, wanting to play, feeling a tad nervous (brights are still her territory for me) but also just not really having the time to experiment. Boy have I been missing out!

I must say they were a dream to work with and being fabulous quality acrylics they hold so much pigment that you really don't need a lot and they keep their brightness. Plus side of acrylics... Painting over 'mistakes', that is definitely a positive in my book!! 

I shadowed with the Inktense pencils, inside the bubbles and around the hearts. This created extra depth. 

The bubbles were created using Finnabair's Don't Be Afraid To Fly stamp set, using three different sizes to get the border. 

UTEE was used to create the glossy hearts. That stuff is just a requirement in my stash - can't live without it!! To add more interest a white pen was used to create more bubbles. Finally I finished up with enamel dots (another new addiction)!

List of 'ingredients' can be found below with links to the shop.

Stunning colour combos, gorgeous designs, wonderful pieces of art! I have a lot of products you used on my "wish list" & have been looking everywhere (well, within reason) for enamel dots. Going to head off to see how much I need to ADD to "wish list".... Why do I always believe I NEED more products? Lol. Tfs

Absolutely stunning work from Georgie - creative stamping and such glorious bold colours. This was a step outside the colour comfort zone that I hope you'll be repeating, Georgie! Fabulous!
