Cut the border pieces into strips of varying lengths. As you can see below your can simply line up strips on the mount or make a criss-cross pattern. Endless options - just have some fun and experiment!
Use the larger pieces from between stamped images to cut into mosaic like tiles and create a pattern on your acrylic block!
This really looks so effective!
For the first ATCoin use Distress Oxide inks and a sponge and cover the entire coin.
Spritz the "mosaic" stamp and stamp onto the inked coin. You will get a mottled look which adds some interest to the coin. Play around and see what effects you can get! Allow to dry.
Using archival ink stamp the "criss-cross" pattern stamp over the background. Edge around the coin with the same colour ink. Coin is ready for embellishing!
Stamp the "lines" stamp with a darker brown coloured Distress Ink across the coin.
Use your embossing ink pad and stamp the same stamp on an angle as shown below and add embossing powder and heat emboss. An effective look with some sparkle! If you want to add distress ink around the edge of the coin to finish off you can.
And finally for the third coin stamp with embossing ink and the mosaic background stamp and emboss with white embossing powder. White always looks so stark and effective!
Use some pastel colour Distress Inks and sponge the background to fill the gaps between the mosaic shapes!
You have three different "look" ATCoins ready to decorate and embellish!
Don't forget to stamp out backings for trading your coins using any of the three backing stamps available in the store!!!!! Cut them out by hand or use your die cut/punch and adhere to the backs of the coins. Who wants to trade???
