Paperartsy - Clare Lloyd ATC's

As always, Paperartsy have wowed us with some more fabulous posts this week, and Clare Lloyds guest spot over 3 days was no different.  I decided to have a go at some ATC's after seeing Clare's here 

I don't do many ATC's but really had fun with these.   I started with Paperartsy Heavy Smoothy card, painted white for added paintability.  I used a selection of Jo Firth-Young stamps, including some that arrived on Thursday (how handy was that, lol!)

  I painted them straight on the ATC without making a beautiful background like Clare.   I did try mixing the Snowflake Fresco with Gloss Glaze, and stencil it through the bubbles stencil, it looked a bit messy with the small bubbles in the stencil, so only did it on two sides (although I later wrecked one so that was used for my text later!)

 but it does show up a bit!
I used Zesty Zing, Tango and Yellow Submarine to colour my flowers and Hey Pesto and Limelight for the greenery.
I don't have any of the mini jump rings so have left these as double sided atc's.

Spring is certainly busting out all over PaperArtsy this week! I love these. I can see the little white circle stencils and they look good on the one that you've displayed here. These colours are gorgeous and the ATCs are so pretty and fresh. Julie Ann xxx
