Hello FotoBella Fans! Have you tried any of the fabulous pastes from Prima Marketing? There's so many great textures and effects you can add to any project, and they clean up so easily! Drea here with the Design Team, and I made a set of ATC's with some Prima Marketing Patina Effect Paste and Rust Paste Camouflage Set, featuring some French Riviera Stamps and the Anchor and Shell Stencil from FotoBella.com.
I started by coating some playing cards with Prima Marketing White Gesso, and then spraying with Broken China and Cracked Pistachio Distress Spray Stains. With a Dabbing Brush, I applied Patina Effect Paste to the Shell and Anchor Stencil, using all three colors from the set. Then I added sand to the bottom of the shell and anchor cards, with Dusty from the Rust Paste Camouflage Set, and really love the results!
All of the stamping was done with Ranger's Jet Black Archival Ink, using the French Riviera 4 X 6 Cling and French Riviera #2 Stamps. I decided NOT to color my stamping, for a black and white effect with the ocean colors, except for a few touches on the card below, that I painted with Tarnished Brass Distress Spray Stain. Then I popped up some of the fussy cut pieces for some dimension.
The bubbles were created with the same stencil using white gesso, topped with a coat of Sprinkled Sugar Stickles for some sparkle.
Each card is backed with a piece of torn white cardstock, and the edges colored with Broken China and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks. Finally, I hand-stitched the twine to the netting, that I recycled from some fruit.
Thanks for looking, and shop FotoBella.com for these supplies and more!
