PP Challenge January 2010 Asian or Tiger

Created: January 23, 2010
Modified: February 12, 2010

These two ATCs are for a challenge on Cuttlebug Challenge Blog with a theme of Valentine, but it also fits for my monthly face to face theme which is Asian.


ID: Asian Love - Large Heart (unavailable)

ID: Asian Love - Small Heart

Both ATCs use backgrounds I recently created using the new Asian Bundle Cuttlebug Folders which you can view here. Love them. I used the Sizzix original Die "Tipsy Heart" for the large and small hearts and cut from mat board, colored with Acrylic red & metallic paint, let dry, rubber stamped with an Inkadinkado flower (Garden Delight #97623) using Versafine Black Onyx, dried, then a heavy coat of Distress Crackle paint Rock Candy. When dry, sponged with Distress stamp pad Pine Needles. Wrapped the heart with gold very thin wire and added a hand made bead using the same background cardstock and Chuck's small Bead Roller. Adhered it to the background.

The flower is cut with the Cricut using a True Font called "Woodcut Ornaments Two" from some White cardstock colored with PanPastels in red, rubber stamped with flourishes and thermal embossed with Gold then formed a bit with the clay sculpting tool. The other layer is just white cardstock, petals formed a bit with the sculpting tool and a layer of Distress Stickles "Rock Candy" smeared over it. A red mini brad holds it to the background.

Used my Cricut to cut out a slightly altered Asian symbol for Love (needed all the elements to touch each other, so moved some of the stand alone elements so they touched a solid element) from white cardstock, inked with Black Onyx and thermal embossed with Holographic. Also cut out the word Love using a script true Font from my computer and moving the letters so they also touched each other. Inked with Distress Worn Lipstick and clear embossed. Adherede it to the ATC with Glossy Accents. Mounted it all on a cool deep red cardstock.

Small Heart ATC:
I Attached the bead to the background with Charcoal Metallic DMC thread. Used the smaller heart and a smaller version of the Asian character.

The word love on this one was thermal embossed with Winter Wonderland. Mounted to black cardstock
