Oddball Art Co DT ~ Messy and Sketchy ATCs

Hi everyone!

Wow so it has been a little while since I last posted!
I've been very busy with my little one, going back to work and doing studying.
Finally I have a little time to get creative and do crafty things.

I'm back with the Oddball Art Co. DT and hosting the Artist Trading Card (ATC) Swop over on facebook. 
The theme for this months challenge and ATC swops is
Messy and Sketchy
You can interpret this anyway you would like. 
I have gone with some messy backgrounds on my cards and added some sketchy drawings.  

Here is my first ATC using one of the yetis from

I have used patterned tissue paper as a base, covered with Tim Holtz distress inks.  I have embossed the edges with pink powder, but it has come out glossy rather than embossed.  This isn't very clear on the photo either.  I've added string and black card with ripped edges to mount the image.  Glitter added to the edges of the black card.  Yeti is coloured with copic markers, with glossy accents on her bow.
This is the first ATC I've made as this is not something I've needed to do before.  But I have enjoyed making them.  Mounted on black card.

Here is my second ATC using 

ABC patterned paper as a base, texture paste applied using Dylusions stencil.  Tim Holtz Distress Inks to colour.  I've then doodled to fit with the sketchy theme.  Dino is coloured in with Copic Markers using a stippling effect, and added onto the top.  Mounted on black card.  

Here is my third ATC using the skull from 

Feather patterned paper as a base.  I've used texture paste through Dylusions stencil.  I added some feather washi tape to one side, but this isn't very prominent.  I've stamped over using black ink with a skull rubber stamp I've had for many many years! Added blue thread then topped with black card that I distressed the edges of and mounted the skull image on top.  Doodled around the edges.  Mounted on black card.
