Tilda & Friends ATC Challenge

One to make you think a bit this week! The theme is

No Designer Paper

Here is my ATC, I'm happy with the background but I boo booed and put too much gesso on the stamped image so it doesn't show up to well now.

So first of all I used TH distress inks and smooched them on with the applicator, I then added some pearl. For the edges I ran a versamark pad around them and then dipped them into triple embossing powder mixed with some denim ink. Heated it up and it was done. The image is a pink cat studio stamp, I have coloured it with promarkers. It looked a bit bright for the background so I sponged some old paper ink onto it and then made the mistake!! I stippled some gesso over it to try and blend it in with the background but think I got too much on the brush. I then went around the edges with a gold pen.

We have a new GD this week , Beth with her little card blog. You can see all the details for the challenge here
