How to make Mixed Media ATCs with Texture Paste and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists

Being on the CCB Design team we are doing an experiment. For this I decided: How to make Mixed Media ATCs with Texture Paste and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists would be a perfect opportunity.

The idea, Feb 17th is Random Act of Kindness Day. On this day the Canvas Corp Brands (CCB) Crew Members will create works of art and leave these for others to find.

Each piece of art will have the #CCBRAK written on the art and we will take photos and post to social media. The hope is those that find the works will go on social media and post that the found the items.

So I decided that I would make Mixed Media ATCs with Texture Paste and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Using CCB products.

Join the Canvas Corp Brands Collective to see all of the items that the Creative Members are making.

Bubble Background & Embossing ATC

Sharing a Bubble Background & Embossing ATC (Artist Trading Card) from the Maremi’s Creative Cafe #52cafecards Challenge. I joined the Creative Cafe just over a month ago and have loved very minute I’ve been in the Facebook group. There are so many talented people in this group. Go and join now, you won’t be disappointed.

Marta has begun a challenge. #52CafeCards. A weekly challenge where a word prompt is given based on the alphabet that we are allowed to interpret into an Artist Trading Card.

Since this weeks prompt is Bubbles I decided to try a technique I saw on the internet a while back. Fill a bowl with water and dish soap. Blow bubbles and then spritz with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Rake your paper, or in this case the ATC through the bubbles to pick up the color. Simple enough.

Items used for Bubble Background & Embossing ATC:
Diamonds Stamp set
Sterling Embossing Powder
Embossing Ink
Detail Ink Raven
Aubergine Chalk Ink
Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist, Party Pink, Pop Rocks, Turquoise Blue
White card stock
Purple card stock cut to 2.5 in. x 3.5 in.
Pink tread
white glue
Heat tool
Bowl
Water
teaspoon of liquid dish soap
Long Straw – I used a bendy straw so that I knew which end to put in the water vs my mouth.

Here is a video of how I made the ATC.

My suggestions, Use a large bowl and use one teaspoon or more of liquid dish soap. Blow lots of bubbles. Heck if you have a kid, have them blow the bubbles for you. lol The more bubbles the better. When the spray hits the bubbles they tend to pop. So the more layers of bubbles you have the better.

Fun technique. I’ll try this again. I may even hook up a small air pump from a fish tank to make the bubbles for me! Wish I would have thought of that before my video! lol

Hope this gave you another great idea of how to make a fun ATC. Using Bubble Background & Embossing ATC sure looks good to me!

How to Make the Young Love ATC’s

Using the Calico Cottage Young Love digital images I’ll show you How to Make the Young Love ATC’s. These are great Valentine ATC’s that you can give out to friends or send in a mail swap. I plan to give these out at an event to a few friends.

How to Make the Young Love ATC's

Beginning January I have become a Design Team member for Calico Cottage. Being able to use her images for art projects is so much fun! The Young Love digital images I knew would be perfect for little Valentine ATC’s.

For today’s project I used these items in addition to Calico Cottages images:

How to Make the Young Love ATC's

A Happy Valentine’s Day Stamp – unknown maker. I’ve had this stamp for many years and I’m not sure where it came from. It may be a stamp that I got in a grab bag at a stamp convention or one that was made for me years ago.

Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven was used to stamp the Happy Valentine’s Day phrase. I love this ink as it dries fast and it is waterproof. Great for when I want to watercolor or spray mists over the top.

Tim Holtz Distressed Ink – Picked Raspberry. The distressed ink was used around all of the images and over the Happy Valentines’s Day phrase.

How to Make the Young Love ATC's

From the 7 Gypsies Trousseau Stamp set that has been discontinued I used the phrase “from my heart”. This was embossed in gold using Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink and gold detail embossing powder.

Little Heart stamps are from Brutus Monroe Stamp Club – Little Monster for January 2017. I’m loving this little set with all the stamps so much can be done.

One of my favorite items to use is Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on this project I used Viva Pink (discontinued but the same as Vintage Pink) and Cork.

How to Make the Young Love ATC's

For a final touch a small self adhesive rhinestones from Paper Studios were used. I just love adding a little bling when I can.

Here is a video of the process.

These were super fun and turned out cute. Since it was a digital download I can reprint these as many times as my printer will allow. So long as I don’t run out of ink. lol If I needed to make 20 or 30 I could very easily since most of the supplies were things I had on hand.

Hope this inspires you. Now that you know How to Make the Young Love ATC’s, how many will you make?
