Texture, texture, texture ATC

How I wish you could feel all these textures - they just do not show up with a photo or scan.

The backing paper came from MADJAK Designs from Linda at

But - I 'made it my own original' but adding lots of dots, shading, and drew in more black swirls to marry it up to the stamped image on acrylic strip along the left hand edge. I also shaded some of the stamped acrylic and added a swirl.

I edged the border in black.

I was rather pleased with the end result of this one - I think for once I will keep this for myself


I used MADJAK stamps from Linda at for all these Artist Trading cards - using different mediums for different effects.

The Wedding - stamped on music score paper, embossed matt black, and burnt border. This is darker in reality - and the border is dark burnt brown - achieved by using lemon juice and a heat gun.

Water coloured camouflaged type backing paper with silver outlines. Stamp reversed on acetate and edged with silver embossing

Little Boy Blue
Background paper blue shades rainbow, image stamped with a complementing blue ink and heavily embossed - so has a shiny dimpled texture.

Distressed ink background, stamped embossed face, border distressed red embossing.

Unfortunately the scans do not show up all the textures of the embossing - these are very touch feely ATCs.

Tribal Tags

Painted and stippled background. Printed image - coloured and enhanced with gold Krylon pen

Stamped embossed background. Stamped tribal warrior painted.
