Hello, I have been messing around with ATCs There are a few photos on this post, but not much writing so it will all work out ;0) As I said I haven't done any ATC (Artist Trading Cards) For a good long while. But they are fun. I decided to Use ATC because I wanted to do a technique I hadn't done for a while before I did it in a journal, and these are a great size for testing new ideas/techniques. I am going to join in with SSS&S And this week is all about hand made backgrounds ;0)

I really enjoyed this technique. The technique is called 'Pealed Paint' some paint and Vaseline (Petroleum Jelly) and your away. Although the drying time in between is a nuisance, so you may as well do a few at a time leave them to dry over night and then you can enjoy them the next day. (steam punk is not pealed paint) that was a transferred back ground.

I have to say I really liked the corset and frilly knickers worn here by Dita von tease ;0) and the way her face is caught in the mirror. The cheeky saying with the fifties style mother & child kinda of tickled my funny bone as well lol Any way hope you saw something you liked. Love Dawn xx
