Here's my ATC for The Craft Barn's Alpha Challenge where the letter this fortnight is C.
I was hoping to carry on the alliteration from last time with a colour and an object starting with the same letter eg claret clematis but clematis wasn't in my dictionary. Then thought of Christmas but decided to save that for X. So I've gone with CONTINENT as I have this lovely Hero Arts Vintage Map stamp.
I've stamped the map in Jet Black Archival, watercoloured it and tore the edges to leave the Continent of Europe! The background is, yes you've guessed it, Salty Ocean Distress Ink with some Faded Jeans spritzed through a Studio Calico zig-zag mask to create waves. It's just finished with the dictionary definition and the letter C. I found a set of white vinyl Thickers in my stash so decided to use those on all my ATCs and colour match them with alcohol inks.
I've added a V to my last ATC and managed to take a better photo showing the number plate. It's HERE if you want to look. I'm beginning to wish I'd chosen a bigger format but it seems we are allowed multiple entries so I may well get a dictionary to stamp in as well.
Anyway I'm off to see everyone else's creations. Many thanks for your comments and words of encouragement - always appreciated!
