I was playing around the past few days making these Artist Trading Cards. The small size is a lot of fun and a nice break from the normal A2 size card. I ordered some cherry Card Scents from All That Scraps and it arrived today- just in time to finish up my ATC’s. They smell so yummy now! The bottle of scented liquid is simply brushed onto the edge of your card. So easy! I started out wanting to make an all white card with only the cherries in color but then I pulled out the Summer Picnic papers and added the strip of red. I’m glad I changed it….I really like the red, black and white combo with a bit of green!
On the second ATC I used the rectangle Nestabilities and alcohol inks again. The owl is from an Inkadinkado set I picked up a while ago and hadn’t had a chance to use yet. It was stamped a second time on the glossy cardstock and popped up on dimensionals. And the sentiment is from the C.C. Designs owl set. I used some purple ink in the background with the blue but when I added more blue to make the “night sky” appearance a little darker, the purple became barely noticible. I added the words in purple for a little contrast.
