Lovely Feathers - Artist Trading Cards






To start January off with ATC swaps, I've got a lovely Feather ATC.  These are simple ATCs but I enjoyed making them.

Supplies:

Distress Inks - Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, & Mustard Seed
Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black
Derwent Inktense Pencil - Teal Green
Unity Stamp Co. Stamps - "Be Yourself" Dwelling Dots, Layers of Life Kit 11/14 
                                         "Feathers" Falling Hearts, Stamp of the Week  (technically these are leaves but they could be feathers.  I used them as feathers any way)

To make the background, I smeared my distress inks on my non-stick craft mat and spritzed with water.  I pulled my ATC through the colors until I got something I liked.  I love making ATC backgrounds like this.  It creates wonderful watercolor effects with vivid colors.  This is why I love my distress inks so much!

Hope y'all have a great rest of your day!
Happy creating.
