9ers ATCs

The challenge this week from Saturday's Workout is to create a page of nine Artist Trading Cards i.e. 9ers.

To start, I covered a 7.5 x 10.5 inches piece of card with various colours of Distress Ink. Once dry, I sprayed some Radiant Rain over several masks. When this was dry, I stamped on a variety of Tim Holtz stamps with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. Then came the words, stamped on using black Stazon Ink. I edged these with purple gel pen and darkened the inside with a black pigment pen. Finally, I cut the 9 ATCs (2.5 x 3.5 inches each) and edged them all with Peeling Paint Distress Ink.

I feel I have cheated somewhat by only having the background overlapping. I can see there is quite an art in creating one large image which can then be cut up into 9 smaller sections that can stand in their own right. That's a challenge I set myself for the future! I am in awe of some of the other people who have completed this challenge. Check out Saturday's Workout page (see link on right of page).
