I finally tried the inky layers technique from the Artist Trading Card Workshop book. Michelle at Crafted By Us has started intro a technique every so often to keep us creative. This is my card after the technique. I didn't have any 'colored glazing medium' so I colored some glossy mod podge with alcohol ink and used that. The 'aged' newsprint was dyed with some of the espresso I used in my espresso/chai tea painting on the 30 May blog entry.
This is my finished ATC...I'm calling it "Ancient Clown". I had done a packing tape transfer of the skull earlier...mainly because I was bored. The rest was scraps I had laying on the desk.
