Artist Trading Cards

click on Photo for a larger Resolution



Here are a couple views of my Artist Trading Cards. I have to say, I am new to the world of Artist Trading Cards. I find myself stuggling to acquire the skill to create on a much smaller scale. I met a wondeful group of ladies through the Weyburn Art's Council who create and trade their spectacular work....so I can blame them for my new AAH(Art Addiction Hobby) which is similar to ADD...I have that also...lol
This particular Artist Trading Card was made for a swap on the Gingerwood ATC group. I loved the technique and I decided to make some more and send along to our artist trading gal with the Technique Junkies Group.
I incorporated two different techniques...from TJNL (Technique Junkies Newsletter). I have been a paid subscriber and group member for many years. These two particular techniques are called Antique glimmer and Cuttlebug Highlights.
I used various brand inks, Glimmer mist sprays and one of Stampin Up's Textured Impression's Embossing Folder - Elegant Bouquet.
Cardstock used in this project is from Stampin Up
The beautiful satin ribbon is Seven Gypsy's and the brown die cut strip was made using a Martha Stewart Border Punch.
thanks for stopping by

I'm brand new to TJ, and I'm wondering how you did the background under the flower? Looking at it closely, it looks like you stamped on velvet!
