Vintage Rose ATCs

ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) is the topic for the PaperArtsy blog challenge for January. Go check out the inspirational examples posted there.

I love making these miniatures as they are a great way to try out techniques and new stamp sets. I was given the PaperArtsy Vintage Rose set of stamps by Scrapcosy for my birthday in December so I chose to use them for my ATC entry.

I made a set of three. The backgrounds are painted with Fresco paints, the beautiful images stamped with black versafine ink and then I painted them with infusions mixed with metallic glaze. The smaller butterfly was painted, cut out and mounted on foam pads to add a little dimension to the middle ATC.

Stamp set : PaperArtsy ESC04 by Scrapcosy
Fresco Paints : Chalk, Mud Splat, Key Lime and Gold.
Infusions : Rusty Hinge, The Sage, Golden Sands
Metallic Glaze

A great topic for the challenge which has renewed my interest in ATCs.
I hope you like them.
