Having to use these 3 colours, it occurred to me that I could do something Andy Warhol-esque and so I decided to make ATCs to play with the different combinations.
I grab some mixed media cardstock, my gel printing plate and the three Fresco Finish Paint to play with : Orchid, Banana and China, as well as a few cute stamps from the Squiggly Ink line.
Now I have enough room to cut my ATCs and to stamp my focal image, which is this cute cat from the Squiggly Mini 25 (SM25).
As I often do, I like to emboss with Clear Gloss Embossing Powder, not only because I find that it gives an interesting touch, but also to avoid ink smudging.
To finish my background I stamped the cat a last time on a piece of paper and cut a mask, that allowed me to stamp with the same stamps used on the gel printing plate without creating a mess and....
The finishing touch is to stamp the lovely ATC stamp (SM06) for the back , I decide to stamp it on another piece of cardstock to get a sturdier ATC, and... I know I'll shock you...without heat embossing this time :)
