Vera Lane Studio: All Good Things are Wild and Free ATC


Hello! 



             
I'm super excited to be hosting the first Vera Lane Studio ATC Swap of 2017. 
I hope you will come along and take part.
We play on Facebook in a private group, which I invite you all to join! You can find us HERE

In order to play you must use a Vera Lane Studio digital stamp. There are some free ones available once you join the group, or you can browse the VLS Etsy shop, in which case you'll be spoiled for choice and won't know which set(s) to buy!

Janet, the owner and artist, has released a new set of digital stamps today called 'Foxes'. They are the start of a new collection called the Woodlands Collection.
Aren't they adorable?



Here is my ATC:




I coloured the images with Spectrum Noir alcohol pens.
Fox fur: OR1, TN4, TN5    
 Cheeks: EB1 and Blender
Dress: LG2, CG2       
Scarf: DG2, DG3        
Boots: TN9, TN4 and Blender
Tree trunk: EB2, CG2, TN9
Tree Top: DG3 and EB2 applied with broad tip in sweeping swirl strokes
Acorns: EB2, DG2, TN4, Blender

The background card has modelling paste applied through a stencil around the edges. It was coloured using Dylusions spray inks in Calypso Teal and Lime Green, but really letting the ink soak in to give a deep colour and reapplying until I got the effect I wanted. Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Iridescent Gold was lightly spritzed over the background to give a lovely shimmer. I also spritzed the Glimmer Mist onto the trees (these were from a set called Straight Street). I added a bit of definition to the background using Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo and a blending tool.

The trees were glued in place directly onto the card. Mrs Fox was adhered on foam pads to make her stand out a little. The sentiment, which comes with the set, was cut into strips and the edges inked with Vintage Photo. The acorns were glued onto the trees and one onto the ground. Finally, I went around the edge of the ATC with Vintage Photo ink and a blending tool to frame the card.



Here are the 2 sets I used to make this ATC:
