Another ATC from me..... again i'm wanting an end to the long dark cold days of winter..... and to soak up the sun..... but being a red head with freckles thats not something i do very often.... unless i want to look like a boiled lobster!
I stamped onto water colour paper (300lb coldpress) as i wanted to use just one colour of ink for the whole ATC plus black soot for stamping. To get the variation in colour for the background just use lots more water with the ink. I darkened the shadow under the chair with more black soot distress ink once my spiced marmalade coloured back ground was dry. I tried to emulate the intense glare you get on a really sunny day on the beach.

Sunshine is pouring out of this ATC, I hope we will have a summer like this. But I will not be in the sun either, you can "brown" in the shadow as well. Don't want to look like a boiled lobster! LOL
