Guest Designer for Mixed Media Mojo

I was honored to have been chosen as the March Guest Designer at Mixed Media Mojo.  The challenge will be up for the entire month of March and features Artist Trading Cards, better known as ATC’s.  In addition, there is a challenge twist of having a “Set of 2”.  This can be two cards as I made, or can be two of anything, such as elements, colors, or anything else in pairs.

For my cards I used a collage technique choosing a bunch of different papers and scraps from my craft desk.  Some were painted, some sprayed, and some embossed.  Choose a collection of scraps (I don’t throw anything away) and adhere to your ATC.  After the glue is dried, choose a thin roll of washi tape and create a masked design in any fashion.  I chose a diagonal pattern.  Then apply versamark to the top of the washi design and apply embossing powder.  I removed the tape before I heat set, but you don’t have to.

Once your background is created, choose some stamps to decorate your ATC.  I distressed with Faber Castell Pitt pens in grey and distress inks after I applied a layer of gel medium and dried.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to see what you create this month.
