A Little ATC Book

Good afternoon all!! What a beautiful sunny day it is today!
I didn't think I would get a chance to play along with the paper artsy blog this week..just couldn't seem to find any spare time. But when the sun started to shine this morning I got drawn out into the garden and into my shed.

Clare Lloyd was back this week with some lovely pieces. On day three she did a little ATC book which caught my eye..so I thought I would have a go. You can pop over and see it here. I don't ususally do ATC's and I have been neglecting my Jofy stamps so here is what I came up with.....

I used three ATC's as Clare did. I painted them back and front using chalk frescos. I then added a layer of  dusky teal blending it with chatreuse.

Next I got my new Lin Brown stencils and used chalk to stencil the dots and chatreuse to stencil the fern.

Out came the stamps..I used a selection from Jofy nine, ten, and fourteen aiming to get a continuous run of flowers through the little book.

I used olive green archival for the stamping as it wasn't as harsh as black. I painted in the flowers and butterfly using south pacific and blood orange frescos.  I added some dots using my white sharpie.

Using the rest of the chalk coloured card I stamped the words using black archival, cut them up and stuck them in the book. I went arond them using burnt orange charcoal and smudged it a bit.

The little book was bound with ribbon and beads
