Since Marianne won an ATC as her prize for having the correct answer to the Flash Contest I thought I would make a tutorial while I made it. So, let's get started. Here's a finished picture so you know where we are headed.
I used some "Inchies made by Crescent Industries. I then started by using various colors of my MetaMica paints (I'll be teaching these in my Paint Tutorial video) on various colors of tissue paper. I just covered them well with shimmery colors and then let them dry on their own. It didn't take long.
Then I used Soft Gel Medium (I'll be teaching this in my Art Medium Tutorial video) to adhere the tissue paper to the "Inchies". I also let that dry on it's own, again it did not take long. I trimmed the excess paper off.
After this I used my mini distress ink from ReneaBouquets store and a Bo Bunny stamp to distress the edges of the Inchies and stamp a little bit of design on them.
To make it easier to play with my Inches I taped them to a piece of paper with scotch tape. I then adhered some tiny embellishments to the top of them. One little flower came from a tiny punch I have, but most of the items came from using a die made by Mama Elephant called "Confetti". I then used some white acrylic paint, markers, and jelly roll glitter pens to jazz them up.
At this point they are ready for some clear coat. I wanted them to shine. Originally I was going to use Glossy Accents but it takes a long time to dry and I don't like fighting the bubbles so I used my Lisa Pavelka and my UV Light. It really puts down a shine.
While the Inchies were in the UV light I decided it was time to prepare a base for them. I used one of my wood ATCs from Fernli Designs. I had to Gesso it first, then I covered it with a beautiful napkin to give it some color. I used regular Mod Podge to adhere the napkin.
Once the ATC was dry I adhered the Inches to it and this ATC was done! I love it and I hope Marianne does as well!
