ATC Play

I sat happily playing with some ATC's the other day, I managed 3 sets of 3 in a set of 12 I was doing, but was stumped with my last 3, That was until I saw the theme over on the Stampotique Designer Challenge
'Artist Trading Cards'
It was just the push I needed to finish the collection, and here they are
 All the bases are playing cards
Covered with a mix of gesso, paint, pan pastels and stencils
And topped with stampotique images in black embossing powder and highlighted with a white posca pen.
I'll be sharing the other ATC's another time for sure, just not photographed them yet.
Thanks for the visit. Catch ya next time.

Great timing with this post Minxy, I need to do some ATC's (all new to me) so this will give me much needed inspiration. Can't wait to see the rest, love these!

Fab set, that first image is fabulous, he just looks so dreary and out of it and in the third they look so, so mischievous!!!

These are just lovely! Love the idea of using playing cards - we have so many packs of incomplete cards here so no one would notice if I reappropriated some...!!!

These are great Nicky. Love all the backgrounds and although I have rarely used them I do love the quirky Stampotique images. That white Posca pen looks brilliant and I may have to treat myself as I haven't found a white pen or pencil I'm happy with yet.

Lots of lovely inspiration on these three fun pieces of art.

These are fabulous Minxy, I love the three heads in a round stamp. I think the posca is my favourite white pen, I wish they did one with a smaller nib though - or maybe they do and I just havn't found it lol x
