Correspondence 3 x 4s

Having made 3 x 4's using Tim's papers last week I am determined to use up more of these wonderful pieces which are exact replicas of the larger 6 x 6 and 12 x 12 papers so you get just the same amount of detail.

I cut stiff card to adhere the 3x4s onto and
 I have distressed the background paper using Stephanie Ackerman's technique found here.

I stamped the backgrounds with Andy Skinner's new texture stamps, finger painted some white acrylic paint lightly in places and added some tissue tapes.

I collected various pieces of ephemera and a die-cut together and again altered them with white acrylic paint and walnut stain distress ink and glued them to the backgrounds with glue n seal making sure I covered the tops of the pieces too.

After the cards were dry I took a gathered twigs distress marker and added shadow to the glued on elements .......

.... and I distressed and inked the edges.

These are just slightly larger than ATCs and I'm loving creating on this size.

Thanks for stopping by today.
