Peaceful.......


Another Artist Trading Coin made recently ....

I used some re-cycled packaging as the base for this coin and die-cut to 2.5 inches in diameter. I also die-cut some white card and stamped with Distress Oxide ink with some rubber offcuts in various shapes in green and maroon overlapping in places. 

I then stamped the tree (Crafty Individuals) and heat embossed with clear embossing powder & some black lined drawn in with a Posca pen. Some pink Stickles glitter glue was added on selected shapes and the word (Crafty Individuals) stamped in black Versafine nk and trimmed out.

The coin was edged with green Versamagic chalk ink to finish .....

Spring ......


Made this card for a Challenge n the Countryview Crafts Challenge blog whose subject this month is 'First Signs Of Spring' .....

I started with a 6 x 6 inch white card blank .... The background was made with Distress Oxides in Speckled Egg, Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade spayed with water and smooshed onto the white card. the panel was edged in black. I then stamped some open and closed leaves in more Twisted Citron ink.

I then applied a strip of green Washi tape as shown and stamped a brown twig top right. The background was then matted on yellow and dark green card.

I then stamped the daffodils, nest and words in black Versafine ink on white card .... heat embossing all with clear embossing powder. The nest and daffodils were coloured with watercolours and trimmed out. The nest was applied on foam pads and the daffodils directly to the background over the Washi tape.

The words were trimmed & matted again before applying on more foam pads. The matts were attached to the card blank to finish the card .....

Thought it was quite Springy in content and colour .....

Cuppa ......


We all love a cuppa ... don't we ?

Made this card on a white A6 card base ....... I stamped the cups (Crafty Individuals CI - 547) twice in Versafine black in and heat embossed both the images with fine detail clear embossing powder.

The first was trimmed out as the base. I then fussy cut the three tea-cups from the other image, handles cut out with a scalpel.

These were then watercoloured with Distress Ink washed in Victorian Velvet, Shabby Shutters, Broken China & Dusty Concord. One of the handles was coloured gold with a metallic pen. I left the tea-bag tag uncoloured on purpose. Once dry I applied Glossy Accents on each of the cups.

I then coloured a surround for the background and sentiment with the same colours. I then applied the plain image on the surround and applied the cups on foam pads. The background and surround were applied to the card base along with the sentiment which was stamped in more Versafine black ink and backed with the same coloured frame on foam pads.....

Dream .....


Here is an Artist Trading Card made recently.....

The background is re-cycled corrugated cardboard cut to 2.5 x 3.5 inches and covered with a Gelli print I made.....

I have added some white Posca pen swirls and dots along with some stamped marks in purple delight Versafiine clair ink which was heat embossed with clear fine embossing powder. I also added a strip of torn Washi tape.

The heart was stamped in the same ink and heat embossed again before trimming out and edging in black. The heart was wrapped with fine dark maroon craft wire and mounted on foam pads.

All edges of the ATC were then heat embossed with ultra thick embossing powder in an iridecsent purple/blue being adhered with Versamark ink. I added a stamped word edged with green ink as shown to finish the card .....

Beautiful ......


Made an Artist Trading Coin for swapping .... reminded me of the evening sky ......

I used a base of re-cycled packaging die-cut to 2.5 inches in diameter. I then cut a layer from a background made on white card with Distress Oxide inks smooshed with water and dried.

The top layer was stuck in place and some circular sewn lines stamps were stamped in black Versafine ink. The planet was made from more Distress Oxide and die-cut to 1 inch diameter, stamped with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. This was stuck in place as shown.

The coin was edged with purple Versamagic chalk ink along with a Tim Holts word sticker and finished with three purple iridescent sequins applied with Glossy Accents.

Giraffe .......

 


Made a card with one of the new Crafty Individuals Animal stamps ....

I used a previously made Gelli plate background with mauve, orange, pale blue and gold metallic acrylic paints using a numbers stencil. This was matted onto orange and mauve cards, edged with black Posca marker dots and gold Krylon pen. The outer corners were rounded with a corner rounder punch.

The main image of the Giraffe was stamped on white card with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The image was trimmed out and edged in black. 

I then used Distress inks in Tumbled glass, Dusty concorde & Rusty hinge and water as a paint and coloured the image with a brush.......

The Giraffe was then placed as shown and stuck down. The sentiment was stamped in Versafine black ink on violet card and matted on orange card, trimming and mounting on foam pads on a 6 x 6 inch white cardbase......

Hold ......

 


This Artist Trading Coin design just evolved as I made it ... rather 'Odd' I know ....

The background is a Gelli print with stamps in yellow and red. I have then applied some printed clear adhesive tape in a triangle around the Coin. I added a backing of some more re-cycled packaging.

A small die-cut circle, coloured with Brushos was applied in the centre and 3 'points' added with a black Posca pen.

A strip of red faceted gems were added and more Posac pen added centrally to the gems. The coin was also edged with more Posca to finish .....

Serene ....


An Artist Trading Card I have made ......

I used a piece of white card for the background and a circles stencil treated with Distress Oxide Inks, sprayed with water and applied on the card background, removing excess water with a cloth before removing the stencil.

I then stamped some circles in dark pink Distress Oxide ink, centred with a block Posca pen.

I then stamped an Acacia tree (Crafty Individuals) silhouette in two sizes with Versafine black ink, heat embossing the larger tree with clear embossing powder.

The card was edged in more black Posca pen and a stamped word added (Crafty Individuals) to finish...
