“Time is the Key” ATC’s Creative Embellishments

Hello welcome to May, I hope the everyone is surviving the SD. I would love to share my inspiration for the May challenge. I love the mood board and I incorporated the numbers into the background using the paper, distress numbers stamp and the Typewriter Stencil. It’s been a while since I made any ATC’s and figured it’s about time to make some more. I Used the Steampunk Keys and the Medium Gears to add a little lift to the Keys. I rusted the Keys and gears with some texture paste before adding various layers of paint.

I made a video of the creative process. I love the look of these and the rust technique is so relaxing to just add layer after layer to get the full effect.

Here are some close-ups for you.

I used some paper from 1880’s to cover the back of the ATC’s. To help add to the rusty old feel of things.
