Native American ATC Swap
These are the ATCs I created for the Native American swap on ATCsforall. I tried to do an inkjet image transfer technique that I learned from Michelle's podcast at Crafted by Us..but my attempt just turned into a big blob of ink...so, I wetted each image (printed on an inkjet printer on standard printer paper) and dabbed off as much ink as possible to give it that sorta transfered look. I decided that the blobby inked backgrounds looked fine, so I tore out the images and adhered them to the ATCs with a glue stick...on the female, I also inked the edges of the image. I used a set of native american petroglyph stamps by Judith Dupre (they are part of a book gift set, but hey, they work). I first stamped images with Faded Jeans Distress Ink and then went over some with Vintage Photo, Antique Linen & Fired Brick Distress embossing powder.
