I'm super excited to have you visit my blog today as I've joined the DT in a brand new ATC challenge that is making its debut at Happy Little Stampers. This is going to be so much fun!
Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) are very popular and there aren't a lot of challenge blogs available for you to get inspiration from and link up to. So Happy Little Stampers is here to help to fill this gap!
Never made an ATC? Well let me tell you they are tremendous fun and quite addictive. So why not join in with this new monthly challenge?
What are Artist Trading Cards?
Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized "swap" events, either in person or online. The only official rule for an ATC is the size: 2.5" x 3.5"
The theme for this first challenge is FLOWERS and here's what I came up with:
The addition of some nuvo drops and enamel dots was my final touch.
Stamps: Uniko, Fun Flowers & Background Blocks Doodle Flower
Inks: Ranger distress, cracked pistachio, blueprint sketch, peacock feathers, mermaid lagoon, black soot; Veramark, clear; Versafine, onyx black
Embossing: Ranger Superfine, black
Embellishments: Nuvo drops, midnight blue; Now & Then enamel dots; washi from my stash
And did I say these cards are addictive? Mmmm, well seems I've got the bug. So here's another two in my flower series.
There is loads more inspiration for you over on the HLS ATC blog - HERE. Go take a look and then get creating. But remember the size rule - 2.5" x 3.5"
Huge thanks for looking today, hope I've inspired you to play along. And keep crafting!
