Live From SnackTime ATCsby Celia Morse
Hey hey Roadies!
It's Celia from Paper Beats Rock Designs here to show y'all these super fun artist trading cards I created with the Live From SnackTime stamp set from Ink Road Stamps, as well as the Basics: Collage Elements and Mug Life
First, I stamped out my icons from both the Live From SnackTime and Mug Life sets, colored them with alcohol markers and fussy cut them out.
Then I grabbed out some texture paste, a stencil, and some mixed media paper out of a notebook from Walmart. I used a silicone paintbrush to apply the paste in random spots on both sheets of paper.
After letting the paste dry, I snagged sprays in bronze and Tainted Love Teal and sprayed them across my two pages. I also used a spray bottle of water to get the colors to mix together slightly.
To get a more royal blue tone, I added a bit of metallic watercolor too.
While those dried, I stamped out my sentiments from Live From SnackTime in blue and brown, then slightly distressed them by blending a little bit of brown across them, and inking the edges in blue. I then mounted each sentiment on a light blue piece of cardstock.
When the backgrounds were completed dried I cut them down to 2½ x 3½ and splattered them with a dark blue ink.
To add more texture, I added some machine stitching, with a zig-zag stitch and some back and forth straight stitches in blue.
I wanted to add even more interest to the background so I pulled out one of the "X's" stamps from the Basics Collage Elements and white embossing powered to embossed them a few times on each card.
Then it was time to add my images and sentiments. I wanted them to look 3d, so I curled each piece and added foam tape to just their centers and liquid glue to the edges.
To finish them off I mounted each card on some Kraft paper. I love making ATCs and I'm so happy with how they turned out!
Here are close ups of each card.
