Today I am sharing the ATCs I made for last month’s Artful ATC group swap.
I actually made these twice as the first pair got lost in the post. These second versions however I prefer as they seemed to work better the second time. The theme was Steampunk or Alice and I made one for each theme.
I decided to play with gilding for the steampunk ones and a playing card and die cut for the Alice one.
I am late again with my coins for the coin swap group I run over on Facebook this month. But better late than never. This month the theme is “this season” and I decided to go with an autumnal feel for my coins.
I started with a smooshed distress oxide background on the coins I had cut from mountboard.
Next, using the same colour inks, I add stamping of lots of different leaves around the edge.
Then I wanted to add some gilding flakes and so dug out the flitterglu and stamped another sprig stamp onto each coin and then added the gilding flakes.
I LOVE these gilding elements!
I finished the coins with an inked edge and a stamped sentiment.
