Christmas ATC's

Hi!  I am mixing up some ATC's today using the Basically Bare Mixed Media Cards.    I used the beautiful colors from Words & Paintery's November Challenge and the Mixed Media Place Creative Gym #14 - Christmas Challenge.

I am sharing one of my  Atc's and will share more later. I played with the multiple layers of texture and black gesso to make a striking backdrop to my fancy buck with his shimmery antlers.

I spent some time building many layers of texture with wooden snowflakes and sequins glued to the background which then was coated in black gesso. I then added metallic blue/teal paint as well as silver paint over the black background.  Then came a mix of stampendous Silver Luxe  Mix glued along in areas.

I added star gems painted to silver and the stamped image with his shimmery antlers.  The twinkle twinkle is from chit chat stickers.

Products: Inkadinkado - Buck, Idea-Ology Chit Chat Seasonal Stickers, Black Gesso, DecoArt Metallic Teal Paint, Paper Artsy Silver Paint
