ATC - Take a Number - April Swap

Hello and welcome to my crafty blog.

Today I am posting my  new set of ATCS for the April challenge with my Facebook ATC swap buddies.

Still working with a 'Art Journalling' style, I choose a another bit of mixed media for this set.

The background is a scanned image of several playing cards selected at random and printed onto watercolour paper.  Using watercolour pencils I blocked out the partial lettering in red  on each ATC to create a contrast and I  then used some distress inks and water spritzer to add theremaining colour.  I embossed each ATC with a corner of the Tim Holtz  'College and Notebook' embossing folder to emphasise the number theme and rubbed over the impression with some Tattered Rose distress ink. The numbers were inked with Tumbled Glass ink and when dry I rubbed some dark brown Versa Color ink in places to create a rusty effect. I finished the number with a coating of Crackle Accents to give more texture.
I need to finish the ATCs with a numbers related quotes and then they're off to the ATC sorting office LOL.

I did say I had chosen the cards at random for scanning and then using an aperture to select the view I wanted, I managed to select 6 consecutive numbers from two scanned A4 sheets...go figure. :-)
