Rainbow Dogs: MDF ATCs and Holder Part Two

Yesterday I shared the step by step for an MDF ATC holder, today I will share the contents; the six ATCs.
I started by giving each MDF ATC a coat of gesso, then added a base coat using my Amsterdam acrylics by Royal Talens.
#276 Azo Orange

#268 Azo Yellow Light

#621 Olive Green Light

#582 Manganese Blue Phthalo

#504 Ultramarine

#519 Ultramarine Violet Lt
Highlights were then added to each ATC using another shade
#311 Vermilion
#270 Azo Yellow Deep

#618 Permanent Green Light

#572 Primary Cyan

#512 Cobalt Blue (Ultramarine)

#507 Ultramarine Violet
To neaten up the edges of the ATCs and to coordinate with the box (see HERE), the edges were coated in Versamark ink and heat embossed with detail gold EP.

For additional interest, stamping was added to each ATC using coordinating colours of Archival ink and the Collector's Edition Stamps from IndigoBlu.
#14 Bubble wrap / #1 Bubbles

#4 Numbers / #10 Crackle

#4 Numbers / #7 Cogs and Gears
#2 French Script / #16 Letters
#6 Circle Dots / #14 Bubble wrap
#2 French Script / #3 Cross Hatching
Six of the crazy dogs (Stamper's Anonymous / Tim Holtz) were stamped onto Sheena's stamping card, coloured using Royal Talens Ecoline pens, die cut using the coordinating Sizzix dies and matted up.  Each one was given an element from the Crazy Things collection for added detail.  The collars of each dog were coloured to match their ATC.

The dogs were then added to their matching ATC and their names added using a fine Posca pen (3 in black and 3 in gold).  Each name was chosen to tie in with the colour of the ATC.

I really enjoyed creating these cute ATCs.
