A is for Amber
I've made my next ATC for The Craft Barn's Alpha/Dictionary Challenge - this fortnight the letter is A. Lots of choice this week and I made a note of all the words that jumped out of the dictionary at me and tried to do something that fit as many words as possible.
The background stamp is an Ancient calligraphy stamp from The Artistic Stamper embossed in gold (Alchemy) and onto a white ATC (Alb.... words are all white). The main focus and my word is AMBER.
I cooked some clear UTEE in the melt pot, added some more UTEE stained with Wild Honey Distress Stain and mixed vigorously to create a few bubbles. I threw in some tiny bits of weed from the garden and then poured into a bezel. It's backed with some card coloured with Wild Honey Stain to add to the depth of colour.
I've edged my ATC with Azure Stazon and finished with some Azure ribbon, the dictionary definition and alcohol inked Thicker.
I've just seen that over on The Artistic Stamper Challenge Blog the theme for May is WORDS - as I've used their calligraphy stamp and words out of a dictionary then I think this fits nicely. Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
