Promarkers, Michael Powell stamp. Distress inks & Glossy Accents, on a Card & ATC

Hi again friends and New followers,

To-day's share are two cards, on Card and matching ATC (Artist Trading Card, which measures 2 1/2"x 3 1/2"), and a Birthday card.

I belong to an ATC swap group and the theme this month was 'Holiday',
so out came one of my stamps by Michael Powell, this to me always conjures up lovely thoughts of relaxing day's by the sea.

As I was stamping, I decided to make an extra ATC for a card for a man's Birthday.

This is the, ATC and matching card, coloured with Promarkers and distress inks, the card matted and layered onto a 6"x 6" card.

I fussy cut elements of the picture and used silicone gel to give dimension to the ATC.

The Birthday card was done in the same way, but matted and layered onto coloured card, and some birds stamped on it, to give some interest, also
to make the card 6"x 6".

I used a glitter pen here and there and glossy accents to make the sea a little more fluid, also to make the windows and lighthouse come alive.

Thank you for popping in, and also for the great comments you always leave me, I love reading them, although I don't always reply.

Til next time, have a good week.
