Here are my Artist Trading Coins today....
I used the Technique Junkies Never Stop Making Wishes stamp and the Messy Marble stamp.
Stamps: Technique Junkies Hibiscus Panel,
French Text, and Big Swirls, and Things I Want To Do set.
And here are cards that I made using these Artist Trading Coins as the focal point....
For my card base, I stamped the Messy Marble stamp onto light green card stock with green ink, cut a panel, and added it to a black A2 card front. I added a strip of gold glitter paper.
I stamped the Never Stop Making Wishes stamp onto the black with a white pigment ink pad, then colored it green with colored pencils. I stamped the same stamp onto green card stock, using black ink, then just the seeds with a green pad, then cut it 2 12 round for an Artist Trading Coin.
I added the ATC to the card front with foam tape, so that the image underneath matched up. I punched some circles from the gold glitter paper and added them for accent.
For this card, stamped the French Text, and Big Swirls stamps onto a white A2 card front, using green and blue distress inks. I brushed on some blue distress ink , then brushed more through a piece of nylon screening.
I stamped and watercolored the Hibiscus Panel stamp onto a white scrap, and added the same blue brushed ink and screening technique, and cut a 2 1/2 inch circle for an Artist Trading Card.
I added the ATC to the card front, over the same image I had stamped onto the card front. I added the Choose Joy stamped circle over that. Some Ranger Enamel Dots finish this card.
