Giz The Cat All My Love ATC

Giz the Cat is all decked out in his Valentine Best and spreading a little love. I made this ATC for the new February issue of the Art With No Boundaries Ezine. For the main focal point I have used one of my new digital stamps the Giz Hearts & Whrily Hat.

Giz has been colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless turpentine using paper stumps. The background is called How do I love Thee script and it is from my Digital Engravings background collection. The sentimet is a mini quote from my Valentine's Mini Phrase collection. The glittery heart is a Valentine table sprinkle which was just perfect for this ATC.

To read more about this ATC visit the Februrary issue of the Art With No Boundaries Ezine, it is packed with all kinds of wonderful projects and tutorials to inspire you.

Expressive Dreamer & Asian Faux Metal ATCs

 


I made the Valentine Art Trading Card above for the new February issue of the Art With No Boundaries Ezine which just came out yesterday. 

Both the ATC and the magazine are packed with all kinds of wonderful things to inspire creativity. The main focal point for this ATC is the dramatic Arty Expression 1 digital stamp by CS Designs which has been colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odoerless turpentine using paper stumps. 

Almost everything on this ATC except the heart charm and wire mesh was made by me. The text background on the left is my How Do I Love Thee digital stamp background and the piece on the right is some of my hand marbled chalk paper  and there is a 4 page in dept tutorial in the magazine on how to do this. The wire element on the top is a coil I made from garden wire, and there is a tutiroal on this in the January issue of the Ezine. The faux metal corner mounts on each of the four corners were made with card-stock and Aluminum Foil Tape.

Above is another ATC which I created Aluminum Foil Corner Mounts and it is also being feature in the February issue of the The Art With No Boundaries Ezine. The red background on the right is also a piece of Chalk Marbling from the tutorial in the magazine.The Text Background on the left bottom corner is from my Digital Engraving background series.
