Happy Friday everyone!
Last night I was visiting my favorite blogs and saw that my friend Lin had made some beautiful, Artist Trading Cards (ATC's.) I've seen them many times before but have never really thought about making one. Since one of the themes for this month's challenge over on the Hero Arts blog is ATC's, I thought it would be a good time to try.
They both measure close to 2.5 by 3.5 inches and they are really fun to make! I used all Hero Arts stamps on both. The Hydrangea is paper pieced on the first one and colored with Faber Castell Watercolor pencils. The Magical Background and Little Butterfly are used on the second one. I white embossed both stamped images and used the emboss resist technique with Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans distress inks.
If you've never made an ATC, give it a try! You'll love it, I promise!
I hope all you moms out there have a wonderful weekend! I'll be working all three days, but that's okay. . . .when you work with flowers, it's sort of an important day and I DO love my job! :)
Happy Mother's Day! :)
