ATC With Hidden Text Message

The challenge this week at The Game Blog is to create an ATC with something hidden. This challenge has a mystery prize! Yey, suspense, preparing us for Halloween! :)

I sprayed the ATC with a glimmer mist, stamped the swirl image in black ink, then highlighted the swirls with a white gel pen. The main image has been painted with metallic watercolors, all the sides have been painted with an 18K gold leafing pen and the top is decorated by a brad with a fuchsia colored acrylic stone.

And now for the surprise element...ready?????

When you lift the "house" it reveals the sentiment!















I am also entering this project at Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog. Their challenge is "Read All About It" - anything that has any form of text qualifies. This stamp has a text background and also has the hidden text under the house.

I hope you like this and thanks for stopping by!!! :)
