Blank Page Muse- March Challenge - ATC's!

 Hi Everyone,
This months challenge for the Blank Page Muse blog is ATC's!
For those of you that don't know what these are...they are miniatures works of art.
A mere 2.5" x 3.5". They are to be traded just like Baseball or Pokemon cards!
So fun!

For my ATC's I used the following supplies:

  1. Medallion Rubber Stamps-
  2. Petals Rubber Stamps
  3. Artist Trading Card Stamps
  4. Art journal paper
  5. Watercolors
  6. Pigment black ink pad
  7. Zig glue pen
  8. Assorted colors Deco foil
  9. Scissors

  • Whenever I watercolor in my art journal, I always brush the excess paint onto a spare page because I don't like wasting any color. If you don't have a page like this, then just paint randomly colors that make you happy.

 When your watercolor is dry, then begin stamping in no particular pattern. The more random the better!

 After you are done stamping, add some color detail with the watercolors. Have fun, go crazy!

Wait for the paint to completely dry before this next step.
The zig glue pen will go on blue and dry to a 'tacky' clear. Since I was using different color of the deco foil, I only did a little of glue detail at a time per color.

 Place the foil onto the glue as shown and rub with your finger over the tacky glue. Then peel back the foil to reveal the color!

Repeat with the glue and each color foil until you are happy with the results.

 Flip paper over and paint some more random colors, let dry before stamping the ATC stamp.
Color in some of the ATC's with paint before cutting out.

 Cool right?
Don't you just LOVE those colors?
