Chunky ATC {with LPC by Liesbeth Fidder}

Hi, it's Liesbeth here. Very nice to be backhere at PaperArtsy ! I'm an ATC-lover and this time I'll show you a chunky ATC made of a wooden block. The front size is exactly as big as an ATC:  2,5 x 3,5 inch....and I used my all time favourite stamps: Lynne Perrella !

I covered the block with vintage paper: pages of an old dictionary and old books, using Golden Regular gel (matte) ...

..and covered the paper with a thin layer of Fresco Finish paint Snowflake and let it dry well. 

Using the template Mini Moroccan Tiles and some Grunge paste I made some ornaments on every side of my block. Let dry very well or dry with a heat tool..

I stamped here and there on the block with black StazOn ink, using the text and ,flower' from Lynne Perrella 028.

With watered down Fresco Paint Beach Hut I painted the block, and with the coulour Inky Pool, I sponged the edges.

I painted a piece of lace with Chocolate Pudding Fresco paint and water, and after drying I sponged it with a bit of Archival ink Coffee. With the same ink, I stamped the text (LP028) on a wooden tag (Prima Carthographer Wood Icons). Using my finger I added a little bit of Treasure Gold Spanish Topaz at the edges of the tag and the block, and also the Grunge Paste areas..

Onto a seperate piece of cardstock (Smoothy white stamping card) I stamped the images as shown using StazOn Jet Black and LPC027 LPC028 , and LPC030.  I stamped just the bow 2x , not the entire stamp (biggest stamp 027) to create wings.


I cut out the images and coloured them with Distress Markers, cut them out and sponged the edges with Distress ink Vintage Photo

.I glued the stamped images onto the ATC, and the lace on the top of it. I added a small metal crown and the tag, and also some fibers as shown. I finished with some metal box feet.

Well, thanks for looking,  I hope you like my Lynne Perrella  Chunky ATC. It was a pleasure to create it, hope to see you next time !
