Great Things Take Time


Hi Artsy Friends,
I'm excited to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) ATC (Artist Trading Card/Coin) Challenge again. The August Challenge Theme is TIME.


For Challenge Rules and other DTs’ inspirations, please check out the Challenge Blog.

Inspired by Altenew Academy’s online class - Monoprinting Made Easy taught by Sara Naumann, I practiced my Gelli Plate with Spray Inks together with Pigment Inkpad for the very first time. I must confess it was so much fun that I couldn't resist making a bunch of gorgeous shining background papers. It’s a pity that the photo does not show the metallic shimmer and gold pigment shine.

The following are how I made my ATCs. Hope you like them. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.

ATC Details
1. Cover Gelli Plate with Gold Pigment Ink (Tsukineko Brilliance). Spray ink sprays (Altenew Metallic Shimmer Ink Sprays and Ranger Distress Spray Stain, respectively) on Gelli Plate. Place watercolor paper on Gelli to create background paper.

2. Cut background paper into ATC size and stamp clock collage (Hero Arts) in black.
 

3. Attach text sticker (Tim Holtz Idea-ology) and mount the background to a white ATC panel. Voila! Hope you can see the shimmer effect from the closeups below.
