Artist Trading Card Daily – 33

February 2, 2015 — 17 Comments

Ok, for today’s ATC I reached for my stash of part made bits again.

Here is today’s little creation

Artist Trading Card Daily - 33.3

I have a lot of parchment craft bits and pieces that I have started, but not finished over the years.

Artist Trading Card Daily - 33.1

So I had a good old rummage and found this piece.

Artist Trading Card Daily - 33.2

It was the perfect size for an ATC!

I mounted it onto some cardstock and then set about creating a gem border by carefully applying them one by one. Not an easy task when you’ve been exercising and your arms feel like jelly!

The sentiment was from a sheet that I got with some montage stamps from Stamps Away. I mounted this onto cardstock and then used the Perfect Layers ruler to create the mat.

The bow was from a die (Memory Box if I remember correctly) and that my dear friends was the finishing touch.

Finally, here is a closer look at the parchment gridwork.

Artist Trading Card Daily - 33.5

Bit of a quickie today but I’ve had little time as I’ve been to fitness training this morning and to see my sister this afternoon. Oh, and I’d best not mention the housework…

    Hi John

    How incredibly pretty. A lovely sentiment, a pretty bow and great attention to detail with the little gemstones.

    That parchment grid background is just so pretty. I have a freebie grid that I will sit down and have a go with- just afraid I’ll get into another craft!!! Am going to get a piercing tool as I want one for my ruler so may pick up some parchment- just to play with in front of the telly, nothing serious… ask me again in 6 months!

    I look forward to these emails each evening to see what you come up with as each day is something different, you’re a very diverse crafter Mr Bloodworth!

    This is lovely. Haven’t done parchment for Iong time. Sure I have some bits somewhere. Must have a go when the cast is off. Saving them so I can refer back to them.
