Artist Trading Cards on Watercolor Paper

Hello! Great to see you back for another project using Blank Page Muse stamps.
For this month, I created ATC’s on watercolor paper.


Supplies –
Canson Watercolor paper
Distress Ink in your choice of colors
Ranger Archival ink Jet Black
Lumiere paint or any sparkly paint
Splatter brush and water
Twine
Spackling
Stencils of your choice
Paper dolls or printed images

Using a 9’ x 12” piece of watercolor paper, cut into ATC sized pieces of 2 ½” x 3 ½” then stencil with Distress ink using a sponge, then spritz with water to get a soft look to the ATC.


With the Archival ink and the Correspondence and Background Grunge stamps, lightly stamp over the ATCs for a light texture.


Lightly brush the Lumiere paint with a wet brush on areas of paint on the ATC then splatter with leftover paint.

Ink the edges with Archival ink or Distress Ink in your choice of color.

Stamp the back of the ATC with the Scribble Circles Information stamp.

Using a stencil and spackling, add some texture to the ATCs and when dry wrap twine around the bottom third of the card and tie in place adding some tacky glue to the knot.

Sort through your focal images and decide on which ones to use, ink the edges and glue down with tacky glue.



Add words from the Dear Beach sentiment stamp (I cut this stamp up to use the words in different ways). Attach words with foam tape for some dimension. Add other embellishments as desired and fill out the back of the ATC.
