2018 #1 ATCs with ZA Sneak Peek {by Etsuko Noguchi}

2018 Topic 1: ATC's

Elena is always so much fun to work with She always provides us with cazoodles of ideas to grapple with and shape into a release. Throw an idea her way, and within 24 hours there is a bunch of wonderful designs to assess. We love to see what she presents, and on this occasion she has loads of new ideas to be revealed in full shortly this month. But as she has 16 new minis to come, we gave Etsuko a handful to play with We have some cupcake - cooking bakers, and some slightly 'potty' (eccentric) chefs. Of course we do!! ~ Leandra

Hi everyone, Etsuko from Japan with you today, and I'd like to share with you some ATCs using new release stamps of our fabulous designer Elena Guzinska (Zinski Art). I love the Zinski Art characters and collage art techniques. I played with cute characters with same theme 'baking' on the small ATCs. For now, I cannot show you the stamps in full, but enjoy this taste of what is to come in just a few more sleeps!

' A happy day of spring'
I used stamps are ZA22, ZA23 (Happy day) and ZN26. Infusions are lemoncello, A Bit Jaded and Magenta.

'Valentine's Cupcake'
I wanted to make simple background using clear embossing powder and some of Seth's new paints. The stamp is ZN26 and Dust Teal, Haystack, all this with Seth's new paint set and Snowflakes.

 'Non stop crazy  bird'
I used ZA22, ZN25 stamps using Haystack, Sugar Plum,  Spanish Mulberry and Snowflakes Fresco Acrylic Paint on the top layer. And I using a tear off old map, some stamps, Seth's new paint set and Snowflakes Fresco paint and Lemoncello Infusion on the background.

'Creating ideas in cute polka dot pants' 
Cute stamps are SA22 and SN25.  The colours used Sugar Plum, Seth's new paint set, Haystack and Snowflakes Fresco paint also I using kraft paper to the background.

I really enjoyed making these ATCs. Given this project and using Zinski Art stamps has brought me great hope and I will try and learn a lot this year too!!  This time I mixed up parts and collaged over backgrounds, but next time I will make using original design for the Valentine's card and Birthday card with the same colour combination. 

Zinski Art stamps are very cute and unique, i think that various designs will be possible if you change colours and techniques. And during use you will also create Zinski Mania! Thank you so much joying with me, I'm very happy if you like my ATCs. See you soon!! 

Much love
