Vintage Toys ATC


Vintage Toys was the theme for November’s Artist Trading Card (ATC) swap.  For those who are not familiar with ATC’s, the size is 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.  I used a variety of images, so the 10 ATC’s that I made to trade were all different.

I started by using watercolour paper with the Distress Ink technique and then I tore pages from an old book, and distressed the edges of the paper with ink.  Next, I added the vintage image, which I downloaded from an Etsy purchase, and adhered the image with Golden Gel.  Once the gel was dry, I embossed gold along the image (stamp is Odd Bird Planet).  Red brads were added. The image was then layered on top of black cardstock, and then layered over another page from a book, and then placed my final layer onto purple cardstock.  The last step was to use a gold Krylon pen to trace around the edges.

Have a great day.  Thanks for stopping by!
