Will You Be My Valentine? - Artist Trading Cards

Happy Valentine's Day y'all and welcome to a special Saturday post!  Today I'm sharing a set of ATCs I made for an Instagram Valentine's Day Swap.

I've seen thousands of awesome V-Day tags, cards, ATCs, and journal pages out there but I wanted to do something a little different.  I ordered Tim Holtz's Valentine's Blueprint stamps and totally ignored the other more "conventional" V-day stamps and went straight for this Queen of Hearts.

I stamped the card in archival ink and colored it with Distress Inks and Inktense Pencils.  I then wrapped the edges with washi tape and added handmade banners colored with Distress Ink.

I hope y'all have a wonderful Valentine's Day with your sweethearts, best friends, kids, or however y'all celebrate.  Me?  I'm stuck at work all day.  I'm ok with that as it means I get to miss all the crowds!  I'll celebrate next week when I'm off work!

Happy Crafting y'all!
