Artist Trading Card Daily – 55

February 24, 2015 — 12 Comments

“I’m forever blowing bubbles” – or so I sing in the bath :)

Anyway, today’s doodle based ATC features an impression on that song.

Artist Trading Card Daily - 55.1

The basic design was created with a Pigma Micron pen and a stencil that has multiple sizes of circle.

I first drew some randomly spaced/sized circles. I then used the same pen to stipple some dots to add shading around the edges of the groups of circles.

To add the blue I used a mix of Spectrum Noir pens and Distress markers (in a spritzer).

The final design was glued onto an ATC sized piece of black cardstock.

As a finishing touch I sprayed a light coating of Spray and Sparkle.

And that was it!

Artist Trading Card Daily - 55.2

Thank you again for reading – I’m getting caught up gradually so there will be a couple more ATCs out today.

Take care and see you again later!

    Great one John.



    This is really appealing – would love to have a steady hand to be able to achieve this.
