Post 171: Mixed Media ATCs- "She"

Hi folks :)

Hows your weekend been so far? I've been crafting a fair bit over the weekend :) I made a set of ATCs for the first time today. ATCs in case you don't know are Artist Trading Cards, these are small 2.5 by 3.5 inches in size and basically a snippet of an artist/crafter's style. The theme of today's ATCs is women, I wanted them to have an encouraging and motivating feel so I kept the titles open ended, "she is", "she can" and "she will". I recycled some sturdy packaging cardboard  to make the base of the ATCs.  I have used gelli printingstamping, stenciling, doodling and splatter on these. 

List of Supplies:

RubberDance Stamp (background flowers)
Inkadinkado Fairies Clear Stamp (Fairy)
Craftyscrappers- Being Traditional (Woman in saree)
So Suzy Stamps- Martini Lady (Lady with martini glass)
Versafine Onyx Black Mini Inkpad
Acrylic Block

Camlin White Gesso
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens
Acrylic Colors by Folkarts (Plaid)
Camel Acrylic Colors

Texture and Embellishments:
Vintage Butterfly buttons

Tools and other Supplies:
Fevicol Glue
GelliArts Gelli Print Plate
Sharpie Fine Tip Marker
Tim Holtz Chit Chat Stickers
Aqua Brush
Fan Brush
Packaging Cardboard
