Artist Trading Coins




Have you heard of Artist Trading Coins?  It's the new Hot trend. They are just as fun as Artist Trading Cards but in a circle form
Okay I got hooked on these by watching this video here
The size is 2 1/2 in for the circle. 
I have a die that I used for my circles. You can free hand cut out circles but not me. 
I can't cut strait so that means I can't cut circles round. That's my truth and I freely admit that.

 Stamps Used:

random stars

Start out by cutting 2 circles from 110lb white cardstock. Glue them together with a glue stick. Cut out a few at a time then glue them all at once so they are all drying while you work on the top coin.  )A lot of the videos I watched about the coins is to work on a square then cut out the circle. I didn't do that. I just worked on the circle. Maybe next round I will work in a square then cut out.)

For the owl in the tree , start with the  top coin of watercolor paper. Use nuance power and make a light watercolor wash. Stamp and color in the tree. Stamp again on scrap and color in the owl and cut out. Add this to coin then attach  the word sticker. Edge coin with ink.

 Soulful doll                 For soulful dolls, use a marker friendly paper for the top coin. Color with alchohol inks if you have them, or watercolors.  Stamp the doll and saying in black.Emboss the doodle bricks with white embossing powder. Edge with blue marker.


Baby dragon         Color circle with watercolors or alcohol inks. Stamp the
random stars          random stars and gold embossed them. Stamp the baby dragon on scrap cardstock and color in and cut out. Adhere to the coin. Accent coin with washi tape and edge with a marker.

Grab the AT Coin stamp here to use on the backside to record all your details!
