And here we go with number 103 in the Artist Trading Card challenge.
This creation features a lovely design from the Craftwork Cards More Than Words collection.
The background was super quick and simple to create and involved chopping down one of the backing papers from the More Than Words collection from Craftwork Cards.
Once I had done this I wasn’t sure that it needed any embellishment but I did want to add a little sentiment.
I have done this in many ways before but as I was picking up the bag of Candi to put it away a couple dropped out and landed upside down and I was struck by how these looked very much like old typewrite keys – perfect!
I handwrote the letters (spelling out love) on individual Candi pieces and then coated in dries-clear PVA glue. I did this as I thought that it would give them the look of the typewrite keys more than if I left them uncoated.
These were then applied to the ATC and spaced out with some mini gems.
And that was number 103 complete!
Do you ever get inspiration from accidents?
