Artist Trading Card Daily – 7

January 7, 2015 — 7 Comments

Wow, the first week’s worth of Artist Trading Cards are now done! Pretty good going eh?

Anyway, today’s ATC features one of my favourite stamp sets – the … from Hobby Art.

The theme was about dealing with challenges.

Artist Trading Card Daily - 7.1

I started this one by drawing the ATC shape onto a piece of blank cardstock and built the design by stamping and masking as I went.

I also stamped out the sentiment onto the same piece of cardstock.

Here’s a pic of how it started to look as I worked.

I then used a cloud die (the one that I recently lost/found in the mess of a craft room) to create a couple of masks from a post it note.

With these in place I coloured the background using Versacolor Inkpads and then the main design using Spectrum Noir pens.

To finish I cut out the sentiment and stuck it in place using PVA glue.

I like the way that the picture shows the bunny taking a journey and the sentiment gives him the advise he needs on that journey; what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by. I hope that you have enjoyed the first week’s efforts. Do stop by again tomorrow as there will be another one, same crafty time, same crafty blog.

Take care.

    Hi John, I love the brave little bunny going out into the world all on his own. I’m useless at colouring so it’s always such a joy to see how it should look when it’s done so well :). xx
