Bad Idea

This week's theme at Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge is 
"Orange & Black"
so with 'spiced marmalade' Distress Ink and a blender sponge, off I went!

After colouring the ATC, I stamped the web and stars ("Happy Hauntings" from Graphic 45) and then stamped "Mr Stripes" from Stampotique at the end of the web.  I stamped him again another two times, coloured, fussy cut and popped his body onto dimensionals.  To give his body a bit more dimension, I went over his stripes with 'majestic purple' and 'onyx pearl' Perfect Pearls, then put him aside to let dry.

Mr Stripes' face was coloured with a purple Gelly Roll pen, the words are from "Barcode Text #2" (Stampotique) and to finish, black Distress Ink was inked on the edges and the ATC was adhered to a black card.
I wasn't sure about the first ATC, so made a second one but in this instance, Mr Stripes is coloured with the Gelly Roll pen.

The background started off with crackle paint (done some weeks ago just to check how well it would crackle) with the 'spiced marmalade' added over the top.

Mr Stripes was also mounted onto black card and to finish him off, I gave him beady eyes with dots of Perfect Pearls.

Happy Crafting!!!
