Welcome to Artsy Index Cards, Days 61-80. I'm nearing the finish line on this 100 Day Project. This batch is my favorite so far. I've used a ton of Ranger Distress products as well as Dylusions Ink Sprays, paints, and mediums.
100 Days of Artsy Index Cards, Part 4
Besides stamps, I've included some of Tim Holtz's chipboard sentiments and even the fortune from a Fortune Cookie. I also used some of my Sizzix texture fades. The first index card shown below has an artist trading card that I embossed with a clock texture fade. A texture fade is an embossing folder that pushes a pattern through your paper. You'll see the same technique on the card beneath it, but on that one I embossed the entire card.
The yellow index card with the girl shown below is one of my favorites. It's a mini tag on a larger tag on an index card with texture paste.
I also used up quite a bit of washi tape on this go around. You can see it in a single strip in the first card below, as well as in the entire background of the second (hot air balloon) card below.
My cards are all 4″ X 6″. I've been pretty consistently surprised by how much I can fit onto that small piece of paper. I like to think of these as mini art journal pages.
Mixed Media Art Membership Group
Have you heard about the Mixed Media Art Membership Group? It's a monthly membership that I host that includes facilitated learning through a Project of the Month (with closed-captioned video instruction), Themed Challenge of the Month, a live Zoom Create-Along Session where we all work on our art together, and lots of resources such as the Project Vault, Technique Vault and Resource Library. Best of all is the supportive and inspiring community we enjoy in our private Facebook Group and the gated private forum on the site where I host the videos and resources.
The group is only open for new members a few times a year, so please add your name to the waiting list to be the first to know when the doors open again. Click here to add your name to the waiting list.
Keep in Touch
Have a great day!
