Mixed media ATC with new medium colors

Hi there !

Did you try the new colors already ? If not, let me show their goodness in a new project, ATCs !

Starting with white cardstock, I sprayed Waimea Bay Colorations. Then I droped water over it and remove it with a paper towel to let the white appear.

Using the Bubbles stencil, I drawn randomly some circles with a black pen, and paint inside them with the new Shine Ocean.

Once dried, I stamped some round designs before applying the new Flamingo over the Diamond Pattern stencil.

The flower are black die cuts with a shadow painted with the new Sorbet Summer and the journaling is stamped and cut.

The final touch was to distress the edges of the ATCs with black ink.

Here is my tutorial for this project, but you can also watch it on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

This is my last post with Art Anthology. It has been two wonderful year. Thanks to you for viewing my projects, even maybe watching my videos ! See you around the crafty world !

Daffodil card with mediums and stencil

Hello everyone !

Here I am again with a different project, still inspired but Spring but in terms of colors this time, and by my favorite artistic movement, the Art Nouveau :

This card was first cut with an electronic machine, but dies can work too…

I use the resist technique with the Art Nouveau stencil and Glass Sorbet, as well as Glorious and Avocado (you can use Granny Smith too) Colorations sprays, on the center part of the card.

Frame, card base and stem were painted in Kelly Green Shine and Shamrock Velvet (you can use Gecko Green Velvet instead).

The flowers were painted with Canary Shine and Dayglow Yellow. The mat was in Dayglow Yellow too.

I just add a sentiment to finish my card…

As usual, here is my video tutorial to guide you to create this card :

Thank you for your time, see you next month for another project…

Have a great day !

Did you try the new Shine mediums already ? The colors are so bright I had to use them to create a peppy Friendship card !

Some fussy cut, few more Ruby red strokes, and my card was done !

Mixed Media Card Set by Toni

Hi everyone… Toni here today with a fun project. I love making ATC’s and they are the perfect little pieces of art to place on the front of a card. I decided I wanted to make a set of “All Occasion” cards for a friend of mine so here we go. I created my ATC’s with chipboard and started by adding tissue tape, stamped old book pages and used a pretty stencils from Art Anthology with Sorbet Glass. Then started applying my pretty Colorations in Wild Orchid, Plush, Timeless and Glorious…. gorgeous color combo. Added some more texture using another AA stencil and running black modeling paste through it. 

Stamped and cut out the butterflies and using the Colorations I applied them with a water brush to give a watercolor effect. Added some dew drops and upholstery thread for interesting  texture.To bring out the colors in the shadows of the butterflies I then added Sorbets in Vegas Gold, Sunshine and Purple Rain. Then cut a mat for each ATC and adhered to the white card stock. Stamped different sentiments on each card and now we have a pretty gift card set to give. The seam binding was sprayed also with Plush and Wild Orchid. For your enjoyment I have provided a Snapguide tutorial of my process. Be sure to follow us on Facebook HERE and download your beautiful projects for all of us to be inspired by as well.  Also stop by and subscribe to our YOUTUBE channel for process videos from the designers. Wishing you a wonderful day ! xoxo Toni

Industrial cards with the Oxidized Silver Texture set

Hello there !

Valerie today, with a project a little bit different than the ones I’m use to… But you need to get out of your comfort zone something, right… So here I am, with a project with no bright color !

What I used for these two cards were the Oxidized silver Texture set , the Ringlets stencil, Mud texture paste and few drops of Sterling Fairy Dust (ok, white paper too).

So I started by applying Mud paste over the stencil. Once dried, I applied the ash stone texture all over it.

Then Grey matte finish and Silver Metallic on the stencil pattern. See how it looks like aged silver ?

The quote were stamped on white circle covered with the Silver Metallic medium. Used alone, it has a beautiful shiny metal finish.

Few drops of Sterling Fairy dust to complete the oxide look and I was done for my background.

If you want to know more about the process of these cards, a complete video tutorial is available for you to watch here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by the blog today, I hope to see you soon for another project (probably with more colors this time !).

Black and bright ATCs

Hello !

Valerie again with a new project for you : ATCs ! ATCs are Artist Trading Cards, same format than games cards, 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. You can give or exchange them, like little pieces of art.

How did I create those ? White cardstock and Art Anthology products of course ! OK, I also use stamp and die…

I used Colorations sprays in Glorious, Timeless and Juicy for the background. Then I applied Coral Sorbet with the Lotus stencil

After making another layer with pink ink and the Fragments stencil, the birds were drawn using the Take flight stencil and a black pen. Then I was done with the background…

Next, I cut the globe in white cardstock with a die, and applied Raider Colorations spray over it. I painted white cardstock with Sunshine Sorbet and Glorious Colorations spray before stamped it with sentiment. Once cut, I just glued the sentiment on my ATC, and I was done !

I made a quick video tutorial for you that you can watch here or on the Art Anthology YouTube channel :

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope to see you very soon for another project !
