Post 361: Mixed Media ATCs- Positive Words

Hi friends!

I'd like to share a set of 10 Mixed Media ATCs or Artist Trading Cards I made as part of my DT work for Peekaboo Designs, all the details can be found here. ATCs or Artist Trading Cards are 3.5 by 2.5 inches in size and are essentially little pieces of art which are usually made as a set, around a particular theme. These are exchanged between artists and crafters all over the world. They are signed on the back with the artist's name and date. I wanted the theme to these be positive words.

Process & Supplies Used:

1. Created the background on a 12 by 12 white cardstock by spraying Lindy's Gang sprays- pink, purple and green hues through 2 stencils- PABD Abstract Triangle & Dimensional.
2. Stamped the images from the PABD Madhubani stamp with Jet Black Archival Ink onto the cardstock.
3. Added a few strips of washi tape to the background-PABD Lovey Dovey, Classy Glassy, Bottled Love & Golden Days
4. Stamped and heat embossed (in white) the floral images from the Madhubani Stamp set onto black cardstock and fussy cut the images.
5. Cut the prepared cardstock into ATC sized pieces (slightly smaller)
6. With the left over piece of cardstock as well as black, grey & white cardstock prepared elements for layering. Cut a few strips as well as did die cutting using the following PABD dies- Ampersand Trilogy Dies, Chloe, Dome Tower, Dual leaf, Dual Stitched Hexagon, Scalloped Rectangle & Cherish
7. Heat Embossed (in white) sentiments from the PABD Bold You Stamp & Ampersand Stamp onto black strips of cardstock.
8. Distressed the edges of the ATCs and adhered them to black mats.
9. Assembled the ATCs by layering & adhering the die cuts, gauze, fussy cut elements & embossed sentiments.
10. Embellished the ATCs with silver stickles & silver sequins
11. Created ink splatter (white, pink & black) at the end.

Here is a photo of all the ATCs:
