UK Stampers forum have joined in with the new craze of Artist Trading Coins … and this month there is an anything goes swap where we make three coins for a swap partner. I decided to make mine into a set that were similar themes…
I started with this background using distress oxides, distress resist spray and some stamping.
Then I die cut three circles (and an ATC) from it…
Next I stamped and embossed the images I wanted to use from an Art deco set I got a few years ago from Creative Stamping Magazine. After heat embossing them I added colour using the same distress oxides and cut them out and added them to the coins.
Next I added sentiments and a little shading using a big brush pen. I decided they needed some more white so I also added the faux stitching using the white paint pen.
For a finishing touch they all got some wink of Stella on the main feature and then lots of dots of enamel accents which I think added some drama and tied in the black embossing and black sentiments.
Hopefully the recipient will like them too.
