Topic: Artist Trading Cards
I didn't mention mention in my post the other day how much I do not like making Artist Trading Cards. To me they are rather pointless as they are not a greeting card, are rather too small to work comfortably upon, and since their sole purpose is to trade them to someone I generally get back some art that I really do not care for.
That said, I discovered after I had committed to the ATC swap for florals that it was a 4-for-4 swap and that I had to make three more. Drat!
Since they will all go to the same person I really coudn't duplicate the one already done so I dragged out some supplies and set to work on new designs.
The first of these began with some brown printed tissue over chipboard. I used some distressed stripes black rub-ons to finish the background.
I arranged two layers of three vellum pansy stickers (two layers so the background would not show through) and added decorative vellum letter stickers at the top.
The whole piece was sealed with clear matte medium then the alpha letters were traced over with black permanent marker.
I finished this off by covering the edges with silver Krylon paint marker.
Finished size is 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
