Thirty Days hath September, April, June, and November - Artist Trading Cards


Can you tell what this swap is all about?


Are you starting to get a clue?


 You guessed it!


It's all about Months!!!


I finally got to use my "Time to Flourish" Graphic 45 papers that I won from their Instagram giveaway a few months ago.  These papers are beautiful and were perfect for this swap!


 Supplies:

Distress Paints
Graphic 45 Papers
Distress Inks
Bubble Wrap
Elmer's Craft Bond Glue Stick
Month Stamps - can't remember the brand
Prismacolor Colored Pencils Set of 12

These were super easy cards to make.  The difficult part was deciding where to tear & cut the papers!  I blended Distress Inks in coordinating colors to the paper on the ATC base and then collaged the papers.  I added dots of distress paint with bubble wrap and collaged sayings from the back side of those beautiful papers.

I stamped each month onto a piece of mixed media paper, cut it out and glued to my cards.  I didn't have my inktense pencils with me (and wish I'd used those instead), but I lightly scribbled in a coordinating color so they month's name wasn't stark white.

After they dried, I called them done!  They're very busy but they are so pretty that I just adore them!  I sure hope everyone in the swap likes them too!

That's all I've got for today y'all!
Happy Creating!
