Art Deco goes Triangular

A few weeks ago I was browsing various Blogs. I stumbled across Zuzu's Petals 'n' Stuff and fell in love. At the time the post at the top was Triangle ATC's. I love what she did and I dropped her a comment.

One thing led to another and I got to join in on this fantastic swap being hosted by Anne from annescraftythings.

It has been a long time since I've made an ATC without a theme. Yes, this one has to be triangular but that left open a slew of idea. So I flipped to my newest items from Alpha Stamps. The same day I discovered Zuzu's blog I also found a blog (that I can't find anymore) that taught a number of different techniques using Alcohol inks. I had spent some time reading the instructions on making your own transparency. So one thing led to another and here is my creation.

I stamped the Art Deco woman on transparency film and colored her with Alcohol inks. The background is a tapestry stamp that I covered with gold acrylic paint and stamped on white paper when that dried I sprayed it with an iridescent gold shimmering paint. I hand sewed the two images together using fishing wire and coordinating seed beads.

The swap is not due until the end of the month but I would hate to hold her up because of international snail mail. So mine will go out on Monday. Watch sometime next month for the ones that I receive...

Hope you enjoy!
Caro
