Tryptych ATCs - Romantic



These are my first efforts of making a tryptych ATC. I used a patterned card for the outer cover, which I sprayed with a shimmery colour mist to enhance the different shades and to give it a shimmer.

I also outlined the edges with old gold paint, mounted two cardboard cut outs and painted those old gold - to make it look like opening doors to reveal....



Glossy photo paper which I painted with alcohol inks and marbled it with metallic silver, and painted the edges in the silver too.





I used the same technique as above for the outside.




The inside was collaged onto bright red paper, on which I stamped and embossed in thick gold.
