This week at Our Creative Corner, our host Rebecca Ednie is challenging us to make an artist's trading card (ATC). ATCs are miniature pieces of art measuring 2.5 by 3.5 inches. Rebecca has given us a color requirement for our ATCs - use kraft plus black or brown, white or cream and one other color.
Anyway, this awesome new Button Boutique set by Papertrey Ink and the matching die were absolutely perfect sized to make an ATC. I started with a kraft base and stamped it with Chocolate Chip ink. I took a doily and sprayed it with a mixture of water, Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls and just a tiny half drop of Vintage Photo reinker. I was going for a cream color for the white doily and it actually worked. I found 4 brown buttons and affixed them to the button card with glue dots. Then dyed my seam binding with Rose Romance reinker. I've had some polyester twill kicking around my workstation. I purchased it thinking I could use it like the cotton twill, but didn't like it. But it worked beautifully to make two tiny ribbon flowers with. I've also had this teeny tiny clothes pin on my desk which became a perfect embellishment. I grunged it up a bit with Vintage Photo ink, applied a little German glass glitter in gold and a large pink rhinestone. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Mixed Messages set and the little tag was cut with a spellbinders tag die. Most of the beads on the stick pin are from the SU Pretties Kit. That's pretty much all I can tell you about my ATC, but if you have questions, please let me know.
Hope you will be joining in the ATC fun over at Our Creative Corner. Be sure to stop and see what the rest of our design team has made for this challenge! Have a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by.
