Oddball Art Stamps Blog Challenge - Life in Technicolour

Today I'd like to share with you some Artist Trading Cards (ATCs)  I've created for the latest challenge over at the Oddball Art Stamps Challenge Blog.

We've changed the rules so now you don't have to play along with the challenge theme, but if you do and win you get an extra prize.

Our theme this month is 'Life in Technicolour', and you can interpret this however you wish, but we'd love you to share with us you an explanation of your interpretation, if it's not obvious.

Here is my ATCs;

For my project I've used Twinkles image #358.  I printed my images out, fussy cut them, then gave them a coat of Blue Irridescent Acrylic Paint, before adding more details to them with Faber Castell PITT Pens. They really do have a lovely blue sparkly sheen to them when the light catches them.

My ATC backgrounds came from a double page spread I did in my Art Journal, where I layered lots of different colours of Acrylic paint, using my fingers, an old credit card and some bottle tops to make all the shapes.

Here are the two pages in full;

Here's how they look in my Art Journal, after a cut a section out to use for the ATC backgrounds.

I've not decided what i'm doing with these pages yet.  I might leave them as they are, as I love all the layers, and don't really want to cover them up.

I've taken some additional photos which I plan on editing and using to create some digital background papers at some point. 

I will be adding my ATCs to the Secret Swap in the Oddball Art stamps Facebook group, so if you join in our swap there is a chance you could end up with one of them.  It's going to be an awesome swap based on the awesome creations already in the Swap Album, you have until the 26th of August to add your ATCs to the Album if you want to join in.

Want to see more projects inspired by our 'Life in Technicolour' theme, then hop over to the Oddball Art Stamps Blog and check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of our design team.  You'll also find instructions on how to join in our challenge and win some awesome Oddball Art Stamps images.
