Found text ATCS

This was a really hard exercise to do.ATCs are small so to find a good piece of text to use was very difficult.Also the print was small so i had a problem being able to read it.I covered the text first with diamond glaze before painting over the text which I had discarded with paint.

Then I had to make them look like ATCs with decoration stamping and embellishments.

On the whole I was quite pleased with them but they took hours to make.

Faux carnival dragonfly ATC

I made this using the dished side.I filled it with melted opals and added the fantasy film pressing well in.After cooling I trimmed it off and added another layer of opals.I used versamark each time so it wouldnt blow away when heated.
It was a bit fiddly but looks quite effective
