Rebel Stampers ATC Swap

It's that time again!  Thankfully I made these before Christmas.

Here is the atc that I made using the Craft Stamper December 2012 Stamp:
I covered an atc in Paper Artsy paper and inked around the edges using walnut stain distress ink.

 I stamped the snowflake using Versamark ink and embossed it in silver.

I coloured 4 Tando Creative snowflakes in Paper Artsy Fresco Finish paint and inked around the edges.  I then sprinkled on distress glitter and allowed them to dry before attaching them to the atc.

The second theme for the month was 'Steampunk'.  Here is my creation:
I covered an atc using some background paper from my stash.

I then took a Prima mask and some Ferro and created the texture that you can see in the top right corner.  The Ferro made it look very metallic and grungy!

I used my favourite Hampton Arts stamp and stamped the image onto shrink plastic and then used my heat gun to shrink it to size.  Once shrunk I put an acrylic block over it to flatten it out.  This was then adhered to the atc.

To finish, I tied paper string through a word bank and attached it to the bottom of my atc and attached cogs and game spinners to 'finish' my steam punk look.

Hope you like them.  Thanks for looking....
