For this swap, I needed to make 3 ATCs which featured metal.
I decided to use metal tape, but to add image and texture by putting peel offs onto the card bases before applying the metal tape. I also used Dyna tape labels for the words.
This is the first stage:
This is the next stage:
The first ATC is coloured with alcohol inks - butterscotch and lettuce with a touch of pesto. I applied them all separately, but they pretty much mingled into one colour. I added some more to mottle them, but it just blended, so I took the hint and left them alone!
The second ATC - 'oak' - was painted with several colours and coats of Pebeo glass paint, sanded with a fine sanding block, then overstamped with a tiny oak leaf in Brilliance Coffeebean ink. I wasn't thrilled with the outcome so put it to one side for a while.
I added some alcohol inks and felt it had improved.
The distressed damsel was also peel offs under metal tape, but this time I added a second layer of metal tape, and trapped a chipboard frame and image between the layers. I then painted the metal tape with Stewart Gill Byzantium paints, then sanded it down, and added a little Treasure Gold here and there, then sanded again to make the high points more prominent.
