Hello Friend

Hi Artsy Friends,

It’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) ATC (Artist Trading Card/Coin) Challenge again. The May Challenge Theme is Hello.

For Challenge Rules and other DTs’ inspirations, please check out the Challenge Blog. ATC is easy to manage in terms of size (3.5 inch x 2.5 inch) and “Hello” is such an easy theme. So please do join us for the fun.

The following is how I made these ATCs.

ATC Details

1. Spray DIY Pearlized Distress Mist (Mustard Seeds) randomly on watercolor paper.
2. Spray DIY Pearlized Distress Mist (Fired Brick) over flower stencil on watercolor paper.
3. When dry, cut watercolor paper to ATC size. Stamp text background (Hero Arts).
4. Heat emboss texts (Simon Says Stamps) in black.
5. Die cut butterflies (Memory Box) and apply Distress Oxide Inks (Worn Lipsticks).
6. Adhere butterflies to ATC panel.


  1. These immediately caught my attention when looking at the DT samples. Great inspiration Helen! Thanks. Stef x

  2. Lovely bit of stencilling here, Helen, giving just the right amount of interest so as not to detract from the focus on the words. Great colours and one of those which will be so much more attractive in real life, with the pearlescent effect and the heat embossing.
    Thank you so much for sharing with us at Try it on Tuesday.
