If I Could Turn Back Time

Hi! We are back as promised with more awesome inspiration! Veerle Moreels has gone all Halloween…


The weather… you would almost think it’s fall. You might think that’s why I took out the stamps I did but that’s not entirely true. I just thought it was time I took out some stamps I hadn’t used in a long time and I really wanted to a lot of the times ^.^

Now what to create…how about a trio of ATC’s?




I first colored a piece of paper the size of 3 ATC’s and stamped on it. Then I glued down my spider web die cut. When you cut up the paper into 3 ATC’s you have patterns that run from one ATC onto the other.

What stamps are calling out your name for a long time and why aren’t you giving in ^.^



Stamps used:


Glimmer of Light




Mr. Bone Jangles




Love you Longer

Music Soothes The Soul

Hello! Thank you for coming to check out today’s post.

Elina Strömberg is here with some awesome music themed inspiration…


Hi!
Artist trading cards (ATC) provide the perfect size for a miniature collage. One could think that creating a small ATC would take much less time than making a standard sized card, but often that’s not the case for me. When there isn’t too much space to play around I tend to spend more time on the card design and on selecting just the right elements for my project; the card must not get too busy but then again it should not be too simplified, empty nor boring.

When I have collected the elements for my collage project I may realize that I’m not able fit all the planned fun things on a single ATC. The solution is to create a series of ATC’s, in which the cards are connected to the ATC set by a common theme, technique and/or colour palette.




When creating these musical ATC’s I first stamped and heat embossed the B&W main images. The images were too big to fit on one or even two cards so I made three backgrounds with Distress paints. I decorated the backgrounds with white acrylic paint dots and stamped music patterns, and before gluing down the main images I attached the colourful backgrounds on white ATC card bases (size 2,5″x3,5″).

I really like my ATC trio! The cards are similar but yet unique 🙂
