Got this amazing atc on my theme of old type fonts from Microjivvy!





Love it in so many ways. It looks like it's a foil type sheet and I'm still bamboozled by how it's made. Please share microjivvy! ^_^

Love that you love it. Cheesy

Let's see...

SUPPLIES:
- THE PAPER: 0.5 mil aluminum foil that started life with a gold dye anodized on one side (available from artist supply stores including dickblick).  The anodized side looks like brass/gold, the other side like aluminum. For as thin as it is, the foil can take a lot of abuse without tearing.  The gold color is not so robust. Perfect for distressing.
- Acrylic paint, Sharpie Marker
- Copper colored "Perfect Pearls" Embossing Powder... I think I got these from Michael's, but I'm not 100% certain -- I think it's either a scrapbooking or rubber-stamping supply.
- Ball stylus

WHAT I DID:

1. Glued a sheet of the foil (gold side up) on an ATC size card.
2. Created the "3" design in graphics software, printed it at ATC size.
3. Placed the printed design on top of the gold-foil ATC (did NOT glue it) and used a ball stylus to trace/emboss the design onto the foil. Lift off printed version and use ball stylus to touch up foil as needed.
4. Then I just messed around using the sharpie marker and acrylic paint to "color" it as I saw fit.  This mostly involved painting acrylic paint on, letting it dry a tidge and then wiping most of it off.  This is the stage where the anodized gold starts to disappear. How much of the gold goes away is dependent on how much paint you use, how long you allow it to dry, and how vigorously you remove it.
5. At some point I decided it definitely needed some "rust-like" areas, so I used the Perfect Pearls to add some coppery detail.

That's the semi-formal write up.

In reality it goes something like: "oh, I like that, don't like that, scrape that off, no, put it back, maybe a sharpie would work, hey, don't I have some sparkly stuff, ooh, look at that clump of stuff that just fell off, maybe if I glue it back on and smush it around and..."

Here are two cards I got from grapeicepop today.  the above is her current favorite song, Set Fire to the Rain sung by Adele. Very colorful and right-on, with little bits of fire coming out of drops of rain.
secondly, for something obscure that happened in 1963 (year of my birth...) the smiley face was introduced and used in insurance advertising.

It is so cheerful, I love the smiley face images and miss my 70s sweatshirt that had it and said Have a Happy Day.  thank you so much, grapeicepop. they are both wonderful.   ps, are they colored pencil?

I received this lovely letter "U" today from grapeicepop for my "letter of the alphabet" theme.

For me it's very nostalgic of classic coloring pages from childhood -- fabulous!

LolaandBean made this grooooovy card for my subject Something Obscure that Happened in 1963.  It is the year of the lava lamp!  This one is gorgeous, with a real silver bottom and top. I love it!  I never did have one, so now I do...  thank you, lola!!

I received this ATC from Ramona Q for "your interpretation of depression."



She says it represents a head drowning in a fish tank of negative thoughts.  It's a fish tank because it's a narrow view of life that is self-contained. 

Thanks, Kate!
I like this ATC a lot.
