The first one is a Steampunk Halloween ATC. I used Tim Holtz's riveted metal technique on the helmet. The metal tape I picked up at Home Depot. The skull is lifted off the card base with mounting tape. Love how the eyeball turned out. After printing an image from the internet I put some Diamond Glaze over the top. The last thing I did was cut off the bottom of the skull to get my dimensions to 2.5" x 3.5" as required. It looked really cool before I cut it, but I've decided I still kinda like the way it's peeking out at me.
The next one is one I created because I didn't read the directions(!) and thought it was a simply a Steampunk ATC swap. (Collective sigh..."Ohhhh...Julie..."). I used the metal tape for the butterfly and some alcohol inks over the top.
(I have since trimmed off the excess backing there on the left; was driving me nuts.) I found these canvas ATC bases at an art supply store here in Edmonds. Fun base to work with.
Finally I have a pumpkin ATC. The instructions specifically said NO jack-o-lanterns/Halloweenish pumpkins but I still wanted it to be kinda different. I stamped a background stamp, ran some Wild Honey DS over it and cut out a pumpkin shape. Cut that into segments and distressed the edges of each piece. To accentuate the pumpkin-ishness I drew vertical lines from top to bottom too.
I can't decide if it still needs something. I added a smidge of orange Stickles at the top but I still feel like it's missing something.
UPDATE: It did need something. What do you think of my additions?
Thanks for taking a gander at my creations. Cheers!
