Artist Trading Cards

Sep 7, 2011

I think I’m going to have to title this ATC “Con­flict­ed” as this is where I’m sit­ting right now in my cre­ative world. This piece start­ed out with a vin­tage feel as I used the awe­some Doily stamp by Cocoa Daisy then before I knew it some of The Crafter’s Work­shop sten­cils start­ed work­ing their way in and BAM I was con­flict­ed in styles and look­ing at this vin­tage gor­geous­ness meets funky brights ATC.

There is a lot of lay­er­ing going on, on this lit­tle ATC. I wish you could see how shim­mery this card is as I used Twin­kling H2O’s and Dia­mond Stick­les all over. The “ME” stamp can be found here in the Cocoa Daisy Bou­tique. Chris­tine sold out of her awe­some Doily stamp but Maya Road has some Doily Stamps  (Doilies, Doilie Bor­ders, Vin­tage Doilies) that would look awe­some too. The wood­en but­ter­fly is an extra embell­ish­ment from one of my pre­vi­ous Cocoa Daisy Kits. I think it works per­fect­ly on this ATC piece

I used two sten­cils from The Crafter’s Work­shop on this piece… Rain (6 x 6) and Damask (6x6). As you can see just by these two sten­cils… I’m con­flict­ed. Damask and Rain drops, nev­er thought I would put these two togeth­er and nev­er with bright orange, fuch­sia, turquoise and pur­ple.

And these two ATC’s are still in the works but I like how The Crafter’s Work­shop “Cir­cle Grid” sten­cil and the Cocoa Daisy “Cof­fee and Tea Ring” and “Ink Spot” stamps look. I plan on adding just a lit­tle to these each day and look for­ward to see­ing what comes.
