Post 455: ATC Coins- Inspiration for Stampotique Designer's Challenge 302

Hi folks!
How are you today ?

Stampotique Stamps has 2 challenges per month and there are awesome prizes up for grabs, so please do read the rules and play along with us. You do not need to have Stampotique stamps to play along, isn't that cool? It's the second week of Stampotique Designer's Challenge- SDC#302 with the theme of ATC Coins.  For all the details, please check out the blog HERE.

In case this is new to you, ATC Coins are essentially 2.5 inch circle versions of ATCs, they are mini pieces of art that crafters and artists trade/swap among each other. 

As inspiration for SDC302, I've created 2 sets of ATC Coins. I was inspired by nature. One set is about bees and the other about trees. I created the bases out of 2.5 inch discs of Canson Watercolor paper onto which I smooshed on distress oxides. Then I lightly stamped with stamps from Stampotique's Phrase Cube 4-13038 to create interest in the background. I also did some light background stencilling using AB Studio stencils. Then I stamped on parts of the bee from Stampotique's Big Bee- 3008 and parts of the tree from Stampotique's Majestic Tree- 10034 using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Created some ink splatter with distress oxides and also added some depth with watercoloring & highlights with a white gel pen. Finished by creating some white ink splatter, added sentiments from Tim Holtz Small Talk Stickers, scribbled on a border to them & darkened the edges of the atc coins with Jet Black archival ink. 

Here are some photos of the ATC Coins:

Stay Blessed :)
