Queen Kat Designs Blog Hop!
Welcome to another fabulous hopping week here at QKD!
You should have arrived here from my darling friend Alex's gorgeous blog and you just happened upon here please start at the beginning of this hop so that you get to see everyone's fabulous works!!
Our assignment was to create 2 ATC's or an altered art page. I decided to go with a set of 2 ATC cards. For those of you unfamilar with ATC's here is a description:
"Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern baseball cards, or 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches (63 mm X 89 mm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals. The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold."
I created two different cards using 2 of my favorite QKD stamps, Bodice and Gothic Necklace. Both ATC bases are PTI Vintage Cream cardstock followed by SU! Designer Paper.
Both are stamped with Momento ink and colored with my Copics and Sparkly Sakura Gel pens. My necklace ATC is coated with my Quickie Glue pen and covered with black Doodlebug sparkles. It is trimmed out and popped up on 3-D foam adhesive. I added a strip of metal pearls along the bottom.
The Bodice ATC is colored, trimmed out, embellished with tiny rhinestones. I then popped it up on 3-D foam adhesive and I gave it a tiny ribbon belt. I used a scrapbook sticker that says Lucky Lady for the left hand side.
I hope you have enjoyed my tiny works of art!! Please continue hopping onto the WIS blog where you will get to see my darling Wynneth's amazing work with Maigan Lynn's stunning mermaids!!
Till next week!
