Atc´s Grungy Birds

 Hello and welcome to Tuesday post. How's everybody? I enjoy and have fun creating colorful Atc´s. I hope you like them.

I've also been playing with  Mixed Media MarksGrungy Stuff  and Textured Birds. Very easy to do, we start. We cut watercolour paper in a size  2,5 x 3,5 inches. In my case, the paper smooth and hot pressed.  I coloured the backgrounds with inks.


When the backgrounds dries (we can speed up the process with a heat gun) we're going to add texture and depth with permanent black ink, and with oxide inks here and there.


With stencils and textured pasta with a crackle effect we integrate the different elements. I have used opaque white paste, if you want to add colour, you can mix with pigments, inks in sprays, acrylic paint. Dare to try different possibilities.


To speed up the drying process we use a dryer. And when the texture paste is completely dry, we apply more colour with inks in sprays.


To give it depth and highlight the background colours, I like to apply black ink to the edges of the atc. To finish, I use the sewing machine to add black stitches.


One of the parts that I enjoy the most is the composition, I have to admit that it is usually the part that takes me the most.  I start by stamping, colouring and cutting out some of the birds from the set.


Now I leave you some photos with details of the project.  I hope you like it as much as I do when making them.









Here are the Rubber Dance Stamps I used:

    1. Hello, I am very glad you like it, the scalloped edges are drawn with a fine marker (micron) and to give it a "stamp" look after cutting in black ink

      I draw it on a paper where I download or clean the ink!

      I hope I've helped
