Hallo me hearties!
Ever have that thing that where what you set out to make doesn’t end up anything like you initially imagined? Well, I can tell you that it can happen to even the smallest of projects.
For instance, this Artist Trading Card was supposed to be about sailing or boats or something along the lines of the sea due to the background.
But as you can see, there is not a boat in sight.
How did this happen? Well, whist rummaging through my growning collection of free stamps from Craft Stamper magazine I found this lady’s face and got suddenly inspired to create a dreamscape with her face smack bang in the centre.
So that’s what I did.
The background was one of those Colorburst experiments that I appear to have quite a lot of.
The face was stamped directly onto this with Memento ink and then coloured in with a gold Wink of Stella pen. I also added a little detail to the eyes and mouth with gel pens.
The decoration was also a simple affair with some gems stuck in position to show dreams radiating from the lady and then a hand written “dream” sentiment on the bottom of the ATC.
Bish bash bosh, job done.
What do you think? A happy accident maybe?
