Artist Trading Cards

This is a scheduled post for the September ATC partner swap at UKATC
 
First off I chose a travel theme, using a piece cut from an old atlas and on the left you just see the white texture paste added with Tim Holtz clock stencil.
 
 
The globe is stuck on with 3D foam pads to give dimension.  The Eiffel Tower is stamped using Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap onto card stamped with Crafty Individuals' script stamp and DI Pumice Stone.

Next I used watercolour to paint the sunset background, then stamped the Inkylicious dandelions in DI Black Soot. The sentiment is from the same stamp.
 
 
Finally I decided to use some of the odd letters I have left from different alphabet sets.  The background is cut from an old dictionary page and whilst I didn't have a clear plan for this card, I like the way it turned out.
