A Cute Little ATC with Sakura and Terri Sproul Mixers!


I have been creating quite a few ATC’s for swapping and for leaving as RAA’s (Random Acts of Art). I enjoy creating these cute little 2.5” X 3.5” pieces. ATC stands for Artist Trading Cards and if you’ve never tried them you really need to. I started out with the following:

2003-02-01 15.21.52

To begin with I stamped the flower image onto an ATC card. Then using some pastel Crystal lacquer, I mixed some TS mixer Green Shimmer into it and painted my stem and leaves. Following that I painted some Red Shimmer mixed with Crystal lacquer that is rather on the pink side because I didn’t mix much red in and painted the flower petals. The center of the flower is a pastel pink Crystal lacquer and the surrounding ATC is painted in a pastel blue Crystal lacquer.

2003-02-01 15.51.26     2003-02-01 15.52.20 Don’t you think this is pretty? Plus your card is protected with the Crystal Lacquer. I think all it needs is some wording to the right of the flower don’t you? Your comments are all read and appreciated by me.
