Distress Ink ATC Tutorial
Welcome! I'm celebrating National Craft Month today with a tutorial on making some colorful artist trading cards (ATCs) :
Next I stamped my focal images with Distress Ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. My last step was to ink around the edges of each card with the Black Soot Distress Ink and then repeat the embossing process on the edges. I keep my embossing powder in a Tupperware container so I can dip the card straight in and have space to tap the excess powder off without wasting any of it.
Here's a shot of the finished cards as well as the supplies used. The focal image stamps are all from Paper Artsy.
I've created a Distress Ink Blending Checklist for newsletter subscribers. I'd love to send it to you. Click here to get your copy!
And here are the individual artist trading cards:
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!
