4 ATC’s from 1 TCW Stencil

Hi friends!  Carmen here today and I’m sharing with you one of my favorite creative mediums.  ATC or Artist Trading Cards may only be 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″, cut you can pack so much creativity into them, and that’s what I love about them!

I used TCW539 – Doodles Pattern 12″ x 12″ stencil.  It has 9 different patterns on it and they are the perfect size to fit onto an ATC card.  I had some Inchie Arts cards handy, they are so durable and can really hold a lot of texture.

I first applied a layer of gesso and then used some DecoArt Media Line modeling paste and crackle paste on the cards.

The first card had a chevron pattern and I applied some Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Mustard Seed all over the card.  I did used a baby wipe to spread the stain.  Then I used the stencil again to add some acrylic paint and give it a mirrored effect.

Add a little washi tape from my stash and stamp on the words Seek Your Dreams.

The next 2 cards I have some vibrant color with DecoArt’s Media Line Misters and some drippage effect.  The card with the triangles I did add some washi tape and embossed some UmWow chipboard pieces with black embossing powder.

This card I left for last because I wanted the crackle effect to be complete.  I spritzed on some walnut ink and heat dried it.  It gave the card an old and vintage look.

To finish this card off I rubbed on some DecoArt Media Line Antiquing Cream in Patina Green to give it a patina.  The washi tape with the vintage stamps completed the look.

There you have them… 4 different ATC cards all from one stencil.  Now that’s versatility!
