Drawing gum technique- ATC’s
Today I am up on Lindy’s Gang blog with a new project:) I want to show you what beautiful effects you can achieve with drawing gum and Magicals. And it is super-easy. All you need is a little patience:)
I started by cutting off the cards from mixed media paper (the size is tiny bit smaller then regular ATC’s as I will be adding white background card as a base. Afterwards I took the fine-tip bottle of drawing gum and just doodle away!
Now comes the time when you need to be patient:) You need to leave it to air-dry and only than you can start adding some colors. I decided to use Magicals (set Autumn Leaves) and Magical Shakers (Grab a Guy Gold, Magnolia Magenta Gold, Cuckoo Clock Cardinal, Guten Tag Teal, Afternoon Delight Denim & Autumn Maple Crimson), although I know for a fact that you can use sprays with the same effects:)
And again, be patient. Air-dry your project and when it’s super-dry, you can start peeling off the drawing gum with your fingers. That’s the effect you’ll get. Gorgeous, isn’t it?:)
While waiting for things to dry, I started to prepare my embellishments. I used Lindy’s embossing powders: Obviously Black and Purely White to add extra interest to the Snip-ARt chipboard branches.
Two of the cards had similar coloring, so I decided to choose one, while I discarded the other. Which left me with 3, completely different ATC’s:) Then I added some stamping and embossing with Purely White EP.
Next step was to glue white base to the cards and let it run through my sawing machine.
I attached the branches to ATC’s and added more embellishments:
This is the end effect and if you look closely, you can still see the effect of the drawing gum on the cards:
Snip-Art chipboard, Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers, 3D mat gel, Mini Art Stones by Finnabair, Glossy Accents by Ranger, drawing gum, stamps by Finnabair, Viva Las Vegas and Paper Poetry, black Archival Ink.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this short tutorial:)
Have a lovely day!
