abc's of me, altered art, art, ATC, card, card making, challenge, scrapbooking


I just wanted to jump on and share the next two cards with you all 🙂

The prompt for B was “Because.” There is alot of layers on this card. It was kinda inspired by what Rachel had said about journaling the negatives then layering the positives. I put more than a few layers of paint, who knows what colors any more LOL, and then while it was still damp I used my AC rub-on stick to “write” the letters in the clay like paint.

For this one, “C,” the prompt was “Clearly.” I searched all over for something I liked when I remembered I had SHRINKY DINKS! HA! This IS attempt #2. #1 ended up being a total curly mess LOL. FYI don’t cut a shape out of the middle of a full sheet and expect it to be ok LOL!!!! I double baked it so it would be crystal clear 🙂 I topped it off with some Hambly Rubons and used my slick writer to do the writing.
I hope you’re all liking these 🙂 I appreciate everyone’s comments. I haven’t been in a scrappy mood lately but I have been drawing. I need a new scanner (mine is a POS!) so I can show you guys! Maybe I can talk poor DH into a new one.

  1. Those are really cool!! I have no idea what shrinky dinks are lol but I have heard of them! Plastic that you heat and it shrinks right? I saw someone do it with these little robot stamps lol. Cute cute!

  2. Love both of these ideas!

    The “B” one reminds me of when we were kids (well, maybe you aren’t old enough to have done this) we used to put a bunch of colors on a page, then color over it thickly with a black crayon, then scratch a design into the black crayon, revealing the colors underneath.

    I love shrinky dinks. I like to print photos on it, then shrink them, then put a layer of glossy accents on top – makes great embellishments for mini-books and cards!
