Mixed Media ATC Artist Trading Cards Eclectic Adverts



Hello, my friends, welcome back for the new challenge. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge our challenge theme is "ATC - Artist Trading Card".  Artist trading cards are 2 12 by 3 12 inches (64 mm × 89 mm) in size, the same format as modern trading cards (hockey cards or baseball cards). They are self-made unique works or small series, signed and dated on the reverse by the artist/producer, exchanged and collected by the people who participate in the collaborative performance.


I was inspired to create four ATCs using Ranger Mini Archival Ink Pads Set on the background and Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps Eclectic Adverts to decorate these artist trading cards.


These cards were trimmed in 2.5" X 3.5" with white heavy card stock using a paper trimmer. After these cards were stamped using Tim Holtz Eclectic Adverts Rubber Stamps, I heat embossed these images with the clear embossing powder.


The background was dropped some Distress Resist Spray and colored with the blending tool and different colors of ink pads. I stamped some text print on the background and adhered the metal embellishments on these ATCs. To finish off this project, I pasted the sentiments on these cards.

Watercolor Postcard Midsummer Blues



Hey, my dear blog friends, welcome back for the new challenge. Our theme this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "MIDSUMMER BLUES". I was inspired to create two postcards using Simon Says Stamp Suzy's Succulents Watercolor Prints and Daniel Smith Watercolor with some sentiments from Idea-Ology Quotations Metallic Stickers.


I watercolored these two prints using Daniel Smith watercolors and a watercolor brush. I always enjoy coloring the succulents and plants with the beautiful Daniel Smith ultimate mixing hand poured watercolors. After the watercolors were dry, on the first postcard, I added some blue Distress Glitter. On the second card, I glued some blue star sequins randomly.

These two watercolored postcards were added sentiments with Tim Holtz Quotation Stickers. I outlined the postcards using a black pen. To finish off this project, I applied a layer of Micro Glaze to seal and protect the watercolors on the postcards.
