Artist Trading Card Daily – 40

February 9, 2015 — 17 Comments

Today’s ATC sees me delving the stash again. This time around I found a digi stamp that I had coloured in a while ago.

Artist Trading Card Daily 40.1

The design was from the “Here Comes The Girls” digi stamp from Creative Crafting World. It was printed onto white Neenah cardstock and coloured using Lyra grey tone pencils.

To make it into an ATC I shaded the edges with Versacolor pigment ink (black) and then sprinkled some black embossing powder around the outer edge and heat set it.

Some silver glitter glue was then added to the edges to tone down the black and to also add a little bling.

I then mounted this onto white cardstock. It was going to be black but I thought that the white added something a little different.

    Excellent – love the shading! I think you’re right about the white card … black would have been too heavy when the embossing and glittering had already made this special! Can’t believe this is number 40!!! Amazing – can’t wait to see where your artistry takes you next! Wish I could conjure up ideas like this but … I’m working on it. Thanks for some splendid inspiration John! x



    Hi John

    A lovely shaded image. The embossing powder and white card do make the image jump out.

    40 already? Wow! Keep going, They’re all very different, very interesting ATC’s

    Hi John
    Lovely. How nice to see monotone. Well done. I can’t believe it’s no 40 already.

    Oh ok thank you John. Was looking for a digi image. Never mind



    Looks just like my little granddaughter. She has very long curly hair and has just started wearing glasses. She has gone to bed now but will show her tomorrow. She will love it. I love it as well. Thanks for showing it. Can you tell me where you got the digi stamp please.



    Love this! Look forward to seeing all the rest over the year x



    all the comments I was thinking about have been said previously, well done once again x



    Good job on this one. You could have called it 40 Shades of Grey?



    Lovely shading 😊



    Yet another lovely ATC and they have all been so different. I’m really enjoying all your cards and learning so very much with each one. Many thanks for sharing X



    Brilliant as usual John x x



    Number 40 already! Fabulous shading and you are totally right about the white. The silver glitter is just perfect. Loving the series.
