Hi friends :)
I'd like to share a set of 4 mixed media ATCs or Artist Trading Cards I made recently for the holidays. They were a lot of fun to make :) these were part of my guest design work for Hndmd. All the details are here. The organic looking backgrounds for these ATCs were created using Lindy's Cuckoo clock cardinal magical shaker, drop dead gorgeous green shimmer spray and blingy blonde shimmer spray. The sentiments were stamped using CrafTangles Seasons Greeting Stamp & the focal elements were sponged on using distress oxides through the CrafTangles Christmas Elements Stencil. The gifts in one of the atcs were stamped using the CrafTangles Bearing Gifts Stamp. Snow was added using white gesso and the CrafTangles Speckles Stencil. The edges of 2 of the atcs were deckled and the edges of all the atcs were darkened & distressed with black soot distress ink. Details were added with silver stickes, antique gold perfect pearls, glitter and a white sharpie pen. In the end, the panels were adhered to white atc sized bases (2.5 by 3.5 inches) to give a finished look.
Here are some photos of the 4 ATCs:
I am playing along with the following challenges:
Lindys December Challenge (was inspired by the yellow, green and red in the moodboard)
HLS Dec Christmas Challenge- used stencils
Thanks for your time :)
Love reading your sweet comments.
