This artist trading coin was made because I had some yupo on my desk and fancied playing with alcohol inks. I made the background first and let it dry and then added texture paste through a stencil.
Once that was dry I die cut the circle and then added more of the ink and included the gold mixative. This created a fabulous rich finish.
I sanded back the texture a little to see if that made a difference to the numbers… it did but only a bit.
I added the sentiment sticker but then I decided to sew the yupo to a backing piece of cardstock to make sure it stuck well.
Once I had done this I added the die cut flower and then stamped and die cut the bird from the petals palette stamp set. I used oxides to stamp and colour the bird.
I love how this came out and enjoyed playing with my alcohol inks and combining the different textures. And that gold mixative is fabulous!
