On these I experimented with some light moulding paste I've had for ages and not used. It was a bit like icing a cake. I then used ink pads again to colour it. I have used the same colours in all these backgrounds so I hope that I'll be able to put together a set of three with a similiar theme. Now all I have to do is to decorate them.
I have been playing with creating some different textures on ATCs for a swap where I have to produce three ATCs with different textures. I had a play with the wizard and fiskars texture plates then wiped them with inkpads. The results are here. The other experiments are all covered in wet glue and other things and are drying on the floor. Will add them when they are dry and coloured. Eventually I'll decorate them all and make them into ATCs.

I have just sent off my chunky book pages (phew) for the Creative Cards fifth anniversary book. I used Moon Glow Glitz Spritz background, stamped with script (Hero Arts) and numbers (Ma Vinci's ). I stamped a piece of binding tape. I made some postage stamps using PSP and then stamped the cancellation and Happy Anniverary. I am soooo excited about this swap, I can't wait for the whole book to be finished.
I was playing with the caught in crystal technique and found that the first few pieces I made were so dark you couldn't see the stamped image on the front. I rescued them by stamping images in silver and embossing them onto the front. The existing black image doesn't really show up much and because the images are different it just shows up as abstract black lines in the background. A happy accident.
I was looking at some of the books on my shelf and looked at Nancy Curry's Texture Effects book and it reminded me of the resist technique which I love. I tried an experiment on an ATC size and I really like how they came out. When I get a chance I'll play with some other stamps and colours.
