May Tag Swap

The May swap at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group is a rubber stamped tag swap, meaning to use at least one rubber stamped image in the art.  I made my usual background on vintage text or sheet music using stencils and acrylic paint. I used a text stamp in the background as well.  I used glitter bead gel through stencils as the final background layer, but it's hard to see in the photos.  The stamped images are from Dylusions colored with glaze pens, metallic gelly roll pens and colored pencils.  The stamped image are popped up.  The little flowers are old chipboard buttons from Maya Road embellished with a white Signo pen.  Thanks for coming by my blog today!

Ticket to Ride ATC Swap

The April swap at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group is an ATC swap themed "Ticket to Ride".  This could be done as a Beatles song swap or a travel-theme.  I used vintage phone book pages for the base and stenciled with acrylic paint using the Tim Holtz mini layering stencils.  They are perfect for ATC's. Next came the car image from Itkupilli, followed up by an image from the Collage Stuff Beauties Post collage sheet.  I used a black Fude ball pen to outline the car, the words and to make a border on the ATC.  Thanks for coming by to see my "Ticket to Ride" ATC's!
