Mailart Monday - A Loving Kiss & Love Letters

A loving Kiss

The theme for the february ATC swap at Inkadinkadutchies facebook group was love. This is what I made for the swap. I used Carmen's Veranda's Klimt Kiss rubber stamp. The background stamp is a heart which I carved myself. First I stamped the Kiss with versamark and then embossed it with gold embossing powder. I made a mask and covered the image and stamped the back ground with Staz-On Cherry Red. Then I colored it in by using fountain pen ink and a kuratake brush pen (sailor apricot for the image and pilot red for the back ground). When that was dry I used my Letraset promarkers to color in the details of the image. I cut a heart out of a round sticker and placed that under the woman's face. To accompany this ATC I made a card.

I used the same coloring method and masking technique for the Klimt image. The background image is also from Carmen's Veranda (postcards) and I stamped it with Versafine Vintage Sepia. I just love the contrast between the colorful image and the sepia background color. I stamped the phrase 'love letters' with a typewriter alphabet font on sticker paper with Staz-On Cherry black (some letters with Staz-On black) and placed it below the image. I adhered the whole piece to an A5 sized note card to finish it off. 

I received this wonderful ATC from Grytsje
