In case you get lost along the way, here's the hop order:

Riikka (you are here!)


As you can see from the video, I started my cards by making a patterned sheet of my own. I used Seth Apter stencil L664 - ATC Mixup to pattern the sheet using acrylic paint. I also use M193 - Excel stencil to add some pattern on top. Next I make an acrylic resist using the same ATC Mixup stencil and Clear Gloss embossing powder. I add some translucent grey acrylic paint on top, let it dry for a while and then wipe it off revealing the colorful patterns underneath the protective layer of the embossing powder. 

After getting the backgrounds done I make some layering elements. First a tag using M060 - Urban Insiders stencil and Cosmic Trio embossing powders set. Then I combine M086 - Techno Insiders Circle stencil with Metalz Trio embossing powders set and a transparency and make some metallic circles as focal points. I also make some word tiles for the cards and finish them with sprinkled Bright White ultra high embossing powder

As always with my ATCs, these are up for grabs and swaps. Please send me an email if you wish to receive one. It's first mailed, first served type of thing. 

Thank you for stopping by today! Your next stop is Heather! So keep on hopping!

This is such a cool process, thank you so much for sharing! I’m such a fan of how you’ve used the clear powder to capture the layers beneath while also providing a resist, what a gorgeous result! I’ve never done anything like that. These ATCs are beautifully layered and detailed!

I'm not very familiar with ATC world, but what grabs me is how you managed to pack all those wonderful layers, colors, shapes, textures and tone with the paste, papers, and of course embossing, on one tiny card-- and it all works together beautifully! Simply amazing.
