This is another ATC made for a competition - had a lot of fun with this! The background is distress inks on watercolour paper, which has a fabulous texture for paint and ink but isn't smooth enough for stamping on.

The image is from a Crafty Individuals stamp, which I watercoloured, overlaid with a metal arch embossed by hand and coloured with alcohol inks, then mounted onto black card to make it stand out more. The black arches at the base are a Teesha Moore stamp which has been embossed.

Although you can't tell the black dots are quite 3D because they're done with relief outliner. The gold scrap wings have been slightly coloured to give them greater dimension. I'm pleased with this one - it will be hard to send it away!!
