Mixed Media ATC Cards – Dream On

Graciellie Design

Hello every one… Are you all ready for Fall? I know I am… I am dreaming of the cooler weather. Today, I have a set of ATC cards to share with you all.

On these ATC cards, I use digital stamp, stencil, texture paste, spray paints, and Gelato sticks. I also use cool color combo.

I started with printing the feather image from Graciellie Design – Obsessively Grateful Digital Stamp. I open the image with Photoshop and then resized it. I duplicated the images to fill the 8.5″ x 11″ (letter size) space. I printed it on a mixed media paper using inkjet printer.

Using craft heater tool, I dried the printed image and then start sprayed the Marabu Art Sprays on it. Then I dried it again.

I trimmed the paper into 2.5″ x 3.5″ using paper trimmer. I ended up with 9 ATC card bases that ready to be use.

I added more splatters on them. I used the spray bottle nozzle from this Marabu Art Spray. I flicked the paint all over the page. I dabbed some of the ink off with paper towel.

After the ink dried, I added some shadow around the edges of the cards. I added the Black Gelato on each card edges and then using my finger to blend the color with circular motion.

I added some texture on the background using The Crafter’s Workshop – 6 x 6 Doodling Template – Specimens and The Crafters Workshop – White Gesso.

When the gesso dried, I added some glue on the embossed images and feathers using glue pen. I let it dried until it looked clear but still tacky, and then I added the silver foil paper on top of them. I rubbed it gently with my finger to transfer the foil on the images.

To decorate the cards, I used the sentiments that comes from the same digital stamp set. I resized them and printed them on a heavyweight cardstock. Then I trimmed them with scissors.

I added each sentiment on each card with some of the natural twine ribbon and mini staplers.

They are done. I hope you all like these cards today. Thank you so much for stopping. Have wonderful day!

  2. I have seen your ATCs in facebook and and I loved them. The embossing on the digital stamps is great and the touch of the natural bow, gives a very nice rustic touch. Thanks for the step by step.
