Joy Clair Christmas Coffee ATCs

Hello everyone… Finally… this week School is back here in Ohio area. I hope you all have been having a good week so far. My daughters have been looking forward to go back to school since mid-Summer break!

Today I have a mixed media project to share with you. These are my very first time created Artist Trading Card or known as ATC. It can be done with any technique, even simple collage of pictures or simply stamping and coloring. Honestly, at the beginning it was intimidating, but when I tried it, it’s super fun!

The ATC size is 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Some people recycle their playing cards. People also trade these cards, not for sale. It is a fun way of trading art works with crafty friends, don’t you think?

To create my cards today I used the Christmas Coffee Clear Stamps, homemade gesso, Gelatos, Stamper’s Big Brush Pens, PITT Artist Pen, Texture Paste, Stencils, Mini Staplers, Cardboards, Watercolor papers, watercolor brush, water, sprayer, stamping blocks, and paper towel.

I had so much fun stamping, doodling, and creating background with those supplies!

To see the full step-by-step picture tutorial how I created these ATC cards, please visit Joy Clair Blog today!

So…have you tried mixed media or made ATC before?

THANK YOU so much for stopping by today and I hope you all are inspired and enjoy them as well. Have fabulous day!
