Saturday chatter

Morning readers

I've a couple of makes to share with you today .... I recently decided to make some ATCoins AND use some of the snippets which had built up in my collection over the Christmas card frenzy (sorry, November!) - I bet you have loads from your Christmas card frenzy too!

Artist Trading Coin #1
Artist Trading Coin #2
My snippets, ready for die cutting in to Artist Trading Coins
Materials used:
  • Snippets of card in white and red
  • Nesting circle dies to cut the 2½" and 2¼" circles
  • Paper Artsy (ZN36) stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • I had previously cut a mask using a full coverage adhesive post it so, with that in place, I added my Stamplorations circle stencil (ATC #1) or Memory Box grid stencil (ATC #2) and added Distress Ink in picked raspberry, using a make up brush
  • With the mask still in place I applied a light coat of Crafters Companion Spray and Shine, to seal the water based ink
  • Using a combination of Pro Markers, Copics, Crayola pencils and Jane Davenport Color Sticks I coloured the images
  • Stardust stickles, to "bling up" the image

I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
  1. Happy Little Stampers - January ATC challenge - MASCULINE
  2. Colour Crazy - challenge No. 1 - ANTHING (hand coloured) GOES
  3. CardzTV - challenge No. 105 - ANYTHING GOES
  4. Penny's Paper Crafty - challenge No. 462 - ANYTHING GOES
  5. Creative Fingers - challenge No. 177 - ANYTHING GOES
