Affirmations ATCs

Gill has created these gorgeous ATCs using stamps from our WHERE FLOWERS BLOOM set, with some of our lovely AFFIRMATIONS stamps.

[Tutorial] I created a master board using gelatos and then stamped the big flower from the ‘WHERE FLOWER’S BLOOM’ set with Distress inks in similar colours to the background, adding a few of the other background stamps for interest. The next step was to cut out some ATCs (2.5″x3.5″), I get 8 out of one A4 sheet. To add some texture I stamped with the string stamp from the set, and embossed it in gold powder to compliment the colours. I cut out the flowers then used Pebeo ‘kings gold’ gilding wax around the edges for a lovely shimmer.

Next I stamped out the smaller flower and clear embossed, then coloured using same gelatos colours as the master board. I added a little distress oxide ink and gilding wax around the edges to match the card. I chose the Affirmations I wanted to use from the AFFIRMATIONS stamp set (such a useful set of quotes to use in ATC’s and journals!). I stamped them on the bottom of the ATCs in black ink to stand out from the background. Before adhering the flowers to the ATCs, I stamped out the ATC backing stamp from the LOVE OF ATCs set and stuck to the backs. I called this set of ATCs “Gratitude Blooms”. Gill ♡
