Artist Trading Card Friends

I have a bunch of friends that swap Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) each month. We have dwindled down to a few hearty souls and have actually missed the past two months, but I have faith we will get back on track now that the summer is over. I really like doing ATCs, because ( and I have mentioned this before) these are the few projects that I actually complete. I love to try experiments, and so I have hundreds of scraps around that never seem to get made into anything. These little cards are fun, fairly quick and it provides me the assurance that I will do something creative at least once a month, and that it will be a finished project rather than a scrap.

I made an ATC from an experiment this month. A friend of mine is stenciling furniture, and she needed some stencils, so I cut her some using my digital cutter. I loved the Sea Horse stencil I designed, so I turned it into a cut-out as well, and then decided to make some ATCs from those. I filled the cutout with liquid gel to give it some dimension and then put it on a background from a Gelli Arts Printing Plate print. The print was actually flowers, but since it was mostly covered up, and it was the right colors, I went with it 😉 . A few twig shapes to look like seaweed/coral and I was good to go.

Here’s a pic of the ATC:

One of these ATC friends is working with me on the Cre8ive Klatch collaborative project. You can visit and read all about her here!

Now I am off making sea shells and more beach related designs!!
