ATC Night

The theme for our ATC trade tonight is Springtime in Paris. Originally I’d thought about doing something digital with a photo of the Eiffel Tower I took when I was in Paris years ago. Then I saw this stamp as Bizzy B’s and decided I’d combine two of my favorite techniques—stamping on scrapbooking paper and then adding colored pencil.
My ink of the moment is Brilliance although I’m always willing to try a new brand as long as it has a really intense black. You can use a positioner to stamp your image if you want to, but I find it more fun to stamp randomly and then go from there. For this trade I experimented with three different colors of scrapbooking paper. It usually works best on papers with a subtle pattern and a little “tooth” so the colored pencil goes on easily.
