Hibiscus Artist’s Trading Cards

  • Stamps – Inkadinkado – “Hibiscus” and Uptown Design Company “Spiral/Leaf Element”
  • Tsukineko Goosebumps Shimmer Spray
  • Ranger Distress Inks: Peeled Paint, Chipped Sapphire, Broken China and Dusty Concord
  • Perfect Pearls Mist – Biscotti

I made 10 of these ATCs to exchange in my Vamp Stamp News book club. We were following the January 2012 issue of the magazine, which covered many topics including Distress Inks and Goosebumps. Spraying the Goosebumps on the paper and then applying the inks over it made both an interesting texture (shiny and bumpy!) and it forms a resist to the water soluble ink.


Buggy Saturday – Part 2

  • Stamp – Holly Berry House “Camaroon Scarab”
  • Scarab – stamped with Perfect Medium and then “painted” with Perfect Pearls: Turquoise, Forever Blue, and Forever Green.
  • Corner punch – Marvy Uchida
  • Cardstock – Cordenon So Silk papers in Shocking Green and Fair Blue
  • Rhinestones – KaiserCraft

This is one from the set of 12 Artist Trading Cards I made (all the same) to trade with a stamp group the other night. The Perfect Pearls have a very nice sheen–perfect for the bug, and the paper is pearlescent too! Not sure how clearly you can see the sheen in the photo. Thanks for checking-in.
