Artist Trading Card Daily – 34

February 3, 2015 — 21 Comments

Well, I had a little more time than I thought to make today’s creation so I did got to town with a bit of allsorts included.

Artist Trading Card Daily - 34.4

This ATC started out with the background. The paper was from a stash of six inch square papers that I have. I’m afraid that I’ve lost the cover so not sure where it came from – soz!

I chose the layers of cardstock to colour coordinate with those in the paper’s design.

Once these were assembled I had a rummage through my little box of ready-to-colour bits and bobs and found a design that I had stamped, using a Tiddly Inks stamp that I got free with a previous issue of Quick Cards Made Easy, and cut out with the Brother Scan N Cut.

(If you would like to see another ideas using this stamp then please do visit this Stamp It Sunday Post).

I coloured her in using the a variety of Spectrum Noir pens that I found closely matched that of the colours in the background sheet.

I also coloured the outer white edge with FS1 twice in order to make it the closest colour match to the creamy coloured cardstock that I had used in the layers of cardstock.

Artist Trading Card Daily - 34.2

Down the side of the paper (should have taken a photograph) there was a tall stem with lots of blooms on it so I decided to recreate this with punched flowers designs.

I first coloured some white textured cardstock using colours to coordinate with the background AND taken from the list above – thereby tieing it all in together.

The flowers were then punched out using a Martha Stewart flower punch. I shaped the petals with my Tonic flower forming tools and then started to arrange the foliage and petals onto the side of the ATC.

As a finishing touch I added gems into the centres of each of the flowers. I varied the size of these according to the size of the flower heads.

And there we go. It looks like the girl is now prancing out from behind a Buddleja bloom.

What do you think she is thinking or singing…? Where has she come from…?

Anyway, that’s ATC 34 of 365 done :)

    Love the flowers. They look so textured – almost like velvet. After watching your ATCs for just over a month now, I am feeling so inspired to work on a smaller scale! Glad I follow your blog! :-) B x
