Okies, we are going to change some things here - Instead of going fortnitely we are going to be going weekly - this means we need some new Design Teams members - We are going to have two teams, so one team will stay as we are and the second team will be made up off new crafty folk - So if you fancy being on our team please leave a comment below and we will come and have a nosey at your blog - The commitments to being on our team are to make one ATC per fortnite and to leave comments on the entrys in your fortnite.
We are in the middle of arranging some sponsers, so for now we are running without prizes, but the prizes we will be offering from our sponsers will only be on offer for the entrys that have followed the main Challenge ie this fortnites is mermaids - so all entrys that have that theme will be eligible for entry into the prize draw.
Also we have our badge now for the winners and runner ups - So if you have won before, please take this badge for your blog
Okies - So without further ado - Leah has chosen this theme - Mermaids - You can of course go with anything goes BUT it must be an ATC - We are an ATC and an ATC only blog
So here are what the team have been up to - well done everyone xx
Here is my Mermaid ATC . Used an image and backing paper , also a pice of ribbon some gems and some mirri card .. Hope you like xxxx
Loved making this one!
Began with layer of Cristina Re Luxury Linen Paper
Added clear bubble stickers . Found a mermaid image on clipart ,printed it ,cut out and adhered to ATC. Just sponged the edges with blue .
I used a stamp from the Water Myths and Fantasy set by Non Sequitur, stamped in Versafine Onxy Black. I mounted it onto silver then black card and added Sakura Stardust pen to the tails to give them sparkle and Whisper felt pen to the seaweed fronds.
I have used black card and then mounted a Steampunk Mermaid, the edges have been inked, an image of Steampunk Fish have also been colored with a gold gel pen. To finish off two gold heart gems xx
The mermaid is done with relief outline on acetate. The background is made with gold and snow sparkle embossing powder with black borders and small glitter dots to serve as magic bubbles!
So heres my mermaid, I got her from google, I coloured her with distress inks, made the inky background, embossed over with a vine stamp and then distressed again, added the flower, gems and sentiment
This is a Sweet pea stamp, painted using Distress Inks. You can't really see the glitter properly in the photo, but she sparkles!!!
Here is my mermaid ATC. Used some special sticky balls and covered with acrylic paint and left some clear as air bubbles, used blue veluum for background then variagated the shades with my copics, put some treasure tin that the mermaids had got as well
I fell in loe with this image ! Lots of distress Inks used on this one! Ive put glue gel behind to make it stand out and added some gems .
I Love the mermaid I have used for this atc, cant remember where I got her from though :( I decoupaged her and added a background from my craft studio
