Learn To Create These Amazing Mermaid ATCS

Hi all

I have a new set of ATCs to share made using the new  Mermaid stamps by Rick St Dennis 


There is a monthly challenge starting on the 1st of the month.

I used distress crayons and pastels to create the backgrounds. I just used water to blend the colours like a water colour paint. I then just coloured in each image and cut them out.

I used a stencil mask with black modeling paste on hte background and then used scraps of matching paper to build the layers up with 3D foam tape.

i used blue and purple watercolour pastels and used a water pen to blend the colours.

The sentiments are cut from white card using a die cutter.

I used bright colours on this one and used a stencil with DecoArt Texture Paint. 

I used Brusho Powder on cheese cloth and spritzed with water to spread the ink.

I finished off with enamel dots

I used a texture stamp over the background and then used a stencil mask with black modeling paste. I used a Polaroid frame in the center and then placed the image over the top.

I used more realistic colours for this one and i wanted her to have trendy hair.

I used a stencil and texture stamp on the background and then i used paper scraps for the layers.

I spritzed the webbed trim with water and used Sea Green Brusho powder over the top to dye it..

IKE's Art Giger Tribute ATCs

Hi all

As you are probably aware i am a huge Aliens fan, so i wanted to create something that was a bit reminiscent af H. G Giger the artists behind the original Aliens movies. I used the Giger Tribute stamp from IKE's Art and took it from there.

I am playing along with 

I painted a ATC blank with black acrylic paint and used the Short Circuit stencil with modeling paste to create the background.

I then cut up a plastic skeleton and painted it with white gesso and then with black paint. I dry brushed silver metallic paint over the embossed areas and bones.

I used a mould to create the face and facehugger. I used modeling paste in a skeleton hand mold let it set over 24 hrs and then i cut the middle finger off and glued it to the back to make the tail before painting it all in flesh and gluing it to the face.

I used the spine part of the Giger Tribute stamp.

The next ATC was created by painting Texture Sand Paste over the ATC first and then painting it black once dry. I  then added a stencil to a section of the background and painted over the top with silver paint which gave it a weird gooey look.

The creature was created out of air hardening clay and i panted the face with a paint mix of bale blue and pale grey. I just experimented with the amount until i got this deathly pale look. I used clay to create the spine like hair and added a skeletal hand over the face to compete the look. I painted the whole thing black and then rubbed Silver Spark Metallic lustre over the top.

For this ATC i used twxture sand paste on the base and then drywall tape, Painted it all in black and the applied the  Snakes Web stencil over the top and painted it black. I then added the short circuit stencil to one section of the ATC and dry brushed the whole base with Silver Spark Metallic Lustre.

I coloured in the Giger Tribute stamp and cut it up and placed the main body in  the corner of the ATC. The Arms i made using paper clay and i just rolled out some long thin sausages. The hand are the skeleton hands which i attached to the appendages and painted black. The Face was made with a mold and painted with a blue and grey paint mixture.
