Aqua Princess


This is a little ATC I made for a swap. The theme was aqua. I just love this colour!
The cardstock started out life as a sheet of grey 12 x 12. I glued torn pieces of old book onto it, then painted it with some watered down acrylic. This looked a bit flat, so I dry-brushed some gesso over the top, and painted it again with some even-more-watered-down acrylic. It was missing something, so I stamped some Paperbag Studios distressed numbers in Versamark and embossed using aqua embossing powder. At this point I cut the 12 x 12 sheet down into ATC sized pieces, stamped my favourite scroll (justjohanna naturally!), added the photo and the ribbon. Then I stuck the crown on her head (she was having a bad hair day - too much frizz), and the Collections word mounted on chipboard. Voila!
