The Big Easy!!!

Loved using Black Chalk Paint on an Echo Art Board ATC... and working with the Steampunk Gelatos & Metallic  Gelatos!!!  Taking photos was tricky... depending on the direction the flash the color of the Gelatos changed!


Supplies from Altered Pages:
Echo Art Board ATC
Black Chalk Paint
Mailbox Muse - The Big Easy Mardi Gras 
Acrylic Block
Versa Color Black Ink
Pirates Gold Embossing Powder
Steampunk Gelatos
Metallic  Gelatos
Dew Drop
Gold Opulence
Gel Xtreme Gold Pen
Tacky Glue

Paint Echo Art Board ATC with Black Chalk Paint, let dry.

Using Versa Color Black Ink stamp the dry ATC with Mailbox Muse - The Big Easy Mardi Gras stamps.
Heat  Pirates Gold Embossing Powder  on the ATC... it is perfect for the black ATC.   
Rub small amounts of Gelatos on craft mat, dilute with water.  On a scrap paper painted with the Black Chalk Paint test how Gelatos will look when dry.

Paint ATC with Gelatos using Waterbrush, allowing to dry between colors. 
Let the ATC dry! Add a Dew Drop with Tacky Glue. Cut a bit Gold Opulence and adhere to the corner of the ATC.
With Gel Xtreme Gold Pen add decorative border, also on the side of the Echo Art Board ATC.




  1. The black background makes the gold look richer. This is a festive artist trading card!

  2. Those masks are lovely and the colors are perfect. I stumbled onto your other blog too, I LOVE that moose cut out college, I mean LOVE. I sort of have this thing about moose! Thanks for stopping by.
