Spirit .......

Made a set of 3 Artist Trading Cards for a swap over on the IndigoBlu Facebook Group in a colour theme of 'Orange, Blue & Green' .....

I used stamps from IndigoBlu throughout. I first made a transluscent watercolour background on watercolour card using IndigoBlu paints and a lot of water. I let this dry naturally before trimming out the three backgrounds to 2.5 x 3.5 inches. I then stamped a background image in orange Versafine Clair ink at the top and added a drip stamp in Versafine black ink. The surfaces were treated to some gold ink and white Gesso. I then added a thin strip of orange Washi tape at the base. The backgrounds were then applied to bases cut from re-cycled food packaging.

The ATC's were edged with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

The bottles were stamped in Versafine black ink on white card and again heat embossed with clear embossing powder. They were then trimmed out and coloured with Distress ink washes and more gold ink. They were shaped and applied and grounded onto the Washi tape with hot glue.

I then added a gold star brad (with its legs cut off) on more hot glue. The word 'Spirit' was added also and edged with black Micron pen.

Finishing touch was to add some shadows under the bottles with black Inktense pen spread with a waterbrush .......

Hope my swap partner likes the Cards .....
