Artist Trading Card Tutorial
Thanks for popping over for this artist trading card tutorial. Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are quick and easy, because they are so small. They are the same size as baseball cards.
Blending Color + Stamps & Stencils
Blend a variety of colors of Distress Ink onto your cards using an Ink Blending tool. Use you heat tool to set the ink now and then.
Add stamping using background stamps. These are meant to add interest but remain in the background – they are not the image you should see first when you look at your final project.
Layer and Layer and Layer some more!
Add more stamping and start stenciling. Choose from a variety of Distress Inks and Archival Inks. I always use Jet Black Archival Ink for the top layer (the focal image, or in this case, faces.)
I hope you enjoyed this artist trading card tutorial. Here's a look at each ATC individually:
