What? Friday? How ever did that happen!

Morning readers,

Still really enjoying Artist Trading Coins .... a pal was telling me about the use of acetate on a regular ATC and I wondered if I could incorporate it in to an Artist Trading Coin ... think it worked, don't you? It's for a swap which I hope will have been received by now so .... check it out below

My Artist Trading Coin
Materials used:
  • Snippets of black and white card and acetate
  • I die cut circles in black card 2½" and 2" and in acetate at 2¼"
  • I die cut the Sizzix thinlet using black card before assembling my sandwich (black circle, acetate, thinlet, black circle
  • I stamped and die cut the image before colouring using Pro Marker alcohol inks
  • Gelly roll white gel pen used to doodle the dotty border
I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
