Artist Trading Card Daily – 8

January 8, 2015 — 18 Comments

One week in and still going! Here is today’s Artist Trading Card.

Artist Trading Card Daily - 8.1

This card was made using the Bare Forest 1 stamp from Indigo Blu.

I first stamped out the design with Perfect Medium and then sprinkled over white embossing powder which I then heated.

I then applied some Tim Holtz distress ink to give it a shaded blue sky.

This was then layered onto some smokey blue cardstock, then onto white cardstock.

The word “Grow” was made by stamping out the individual letters using mini alphabet stamps onto which I applied a drop of Glossy Accents. After this had dried I used the Cropodile to punch each letter out. These were applied to the ATC with PVA glue.

The letters were interspersed with Anita’s Mini Gems.

Artist Trading Card Daily - 8.2

And there we have it, another ATC for the collection.

I hope that you like it and that it may inspire you to have a go at these manageable mini makes.

    I am really loving the daily ATC you have made. Thank you for sharing them with us. I made ATC’s a few years ago but stop as I thought they had “gone out of fashion” but I might just start making them again. x

    Great ATC John. I will ” borrow” the way of making the tiny letters- so clever of you.

    Jim is there someplace in the US that sells Hobby Art Stamps. I really like them but only see them in the UK. Thanks!



    Hi John, I love this one!! The white embossing is VERY effective. I think it’s a case of ‘less is more’. I’m really enjoying my daily fix. x
