Post 175: Mixed Media ATCs: Water

Hi Friends :)

I'd like to share a set of Media Media Artist Trading Cards I created on the theme of water/sea/beach.
These are 5 and they were made on recycled cardboard.
I really love the look of corrugated cardboard so I let the texture show through in some places.
I created texture with gesso and texture paste, created a grungy look by tearing the paper and added colors using sprays, wax and acrylic colors. Then to embellish the project used metal charms, gauze, burlap cord and marbles. Added more texture with mini beads and glass glitter. Colored the dusty attic chipboard pebbles with Picket fence distress inkpad. In the end, finished with white splatter.

List of Supplies:

Dusty Attic Chipboard- Bubbles and Page Pebbles #3
DCWV Project Paper- Cool Ombre
Prima Heavy White Gesso
Prima Modelling Paste
Little Birdie Color Splash Sprays- Ocean Mist and Mocha
Heidi Swapp Color Shine Sprays- Peacock
Distress Inkpad- Picket Fence
Art Anthology Dimensional Paint - Blue
Prima Mica Powder- Blue
Inka Gold- Steel Blue
Prima Glass Glitter- Sterling
Tombow Mono Multi Glue
Metal Charms
Mini Beads
Burlap Thread
Sea Shells
Aqua Brush
Recycled Cardboard

Here are a few pictures of the ATCs:

I am playing along with the following challenges:

Dusty Attic May Challenge (I was inspired by the theme of beach/water and the colors)

DCWV May Stackaholic Challenge (facebook)
Mixed Media & Art May Challenge (was inspired by the blue and brown colors)
